A fully non-destructive photo retouching program providing a complete RAW image editing workflow
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dhor/myway sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install photoflow
To compile from sources, download the PKGBUILD file and run this command in the download directory:
sudo packman -U photoflow-git-0.2.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
A binary distribution for OSX can be found here.
An installer for windows can be found here.
The pixel rendering engine of PhotoFlow is based on VIPS (http://www.vips.ecs.soton.ac.uk). You have to install a recent version of VIPS in order to compile PhotoFlow.
Once VIPS is set up and running, follow these steps to download and compile PhotoFlow:
get master branch from GitHub:
$ git clone https://github.com/aferrero2707/PhotoFlow.git
or the development branch:
$ git clone -b develop https://github.com/aferrero2707/PhotoFlow.git
You need the following dependencies to build Photoflow: gettext, glib-2.x, libxml-2.0, pkg-config, swig, gtk-doc-tools, automake, gobject-introspection, gnu make, cmake, libtiff, libjpeg, libfftw3, exiv2, lensfun and gtkmm-2.x or gtkmm-3.x.
PhotoFlow provides an helper script to simplify the building process; in order to use it you have to go into the "build" subdirectory and run the "build_all.sh" script:
$ cd PhotoFlow/build $ bash ./build_all.sh
This will not only compile photoflow, but also fetch and compile the right version of VIPS automatically.
If all goes well, you can now open an image file with PhotoFlow:
$ ./Release/bin/photoflow image_file_name
