How to install Fotoxx 17.04.1 Photo Editor on Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10, 17.04

   Fotoxx is a free Linux program for editing photos or other images and managing a large collection. Image directories (folders) can be viewed as a scrolling gallery of thumbnail images. Navigating directories and subdirectories is simple and fast. Click on a thumbnail for a full window view of the image. The image can be zoomed, panned and scrolled using the mouse. Gallery thumbnails can vary from small to huge. Popup windows can be used to view multiple images at any scale. Galleries are also used to display image search results and albums.

Fotoxx 17.04.1 Changelog:
Bug Fixes:
  •   Crash in thumbnail gallery of RAW files if thumbnail size is large.
  •   Sharpen Image: error message if [apply] and no method was chosen.
  •   Retouch Combo: [reset] omitted reset of "amplify" slider.
  •   Popup menus: offset from mouse position to make menu cancel easier.
  •   Source code revisions for GTK API changes (Ubuntu 17.04, Fedora 25).
  •   Implementation of AppImage, a distro-agnostic packaging format.
  •   Smoother gallery scrolling via thread to pre-fetch thumbnail images.
  •   Image Montage: join selected images together into a compact table format.
  •   Images included in the table can be clicked to show a full-size image.
  •   Paint Image: modified to make it easier to use with a Wacom tablet.
  •   Paint Image: use any image as a custom color palette - click to select color.
  •   Edited images get an automatic tag, allowing "edited" as a search criteria.
  •   Alien Colors effect: repaint an image or area with random strange colors.
  •   Stack/Paint: Transient forground objects can be removed automatically, and a
  •   moving subject can be shown in multiple positions against the background.
  •   Twist effect: twist or swirl an image around a mouse-selected central point.
  •   Script Files: most of the special effects functions are now scriptable.
  •   Denoise - measure noise: the noise is more completely characterized.
  •   The desktop wallpaper functions were removed because they stopped working.
User Interface:
  •   Paint Image and Clone Image were split into separate functions.
  •   Trim/Rotate: margin sides can be dragged in addition to the corners.
  •   Rename, Copy/Move, Delete/Trash: options were added to keep these dialogs
  •   open or not (keep open is easier/faster if processing multiple files).
  •   Albums can now be sorted like any other gallery, but cannot be edited when
  •   in an out-of-sequence condition. To edit, re-open the album.
  •   User Settings: an album name can be specified as the startup gallery.
Bug Fixes:
  •   Startup with file parameter: now works for absolute or relative file name.
  •   Correctly handle file and directory names containing '$' characters.
  •   Voodoo functions can now be assigned to shortcut keys like any other.
  •   Disallow re-sorting of a metadata report, which loses the link between
  •   images and their metadata. Sort the gallery before generating the report.
  •   Copy to Desktop or Clipboard: an edited but unsaved file copies correctly.
  •   Trim/Rotate: stop sporadic motion of zoomed image when margins are dragged.
