how we tested…

Linux Format - - Roundup -

Many of the tools fea­tured in this Roundup pushed out a new re­leases back in March/April of 2018. As such, these new re­leases aren’t yet avail­able in the soft­ware repos­i­to­ries for most dis­tri­bu­tions, which still fea­ture older ver­sions. With this in mind, we’ve in­stalled the lat­est re­leases of all the pack­ages us­ing Ap­pim­age pack­ages, where avail­able, or via PPA repos­i­to­ries on top of Ubuntu 17.10.

Image editors can work with the Raw file for­mat that pro pho­tog­ra­phers use, as well as a va­ri­ety of more com­monly recog­nised for­mats, and boast a vast set of fea­tures. We want a tool that doesn’t hin­der work­flow with a com­pli­cated in­ter­face by in­clud­ing many fea­tures out of the box.

We’ll test these tools to see if they of­fer any as­sis­tance to users by pro­vid­ing aids such as red eye re­moval and batch pro­cess­ing of im­ages. Also im­por­tant is the doc­u­men­ta­tion and sup­port you can find, and whether or not the tools can be cus­tomised and tweaked to your lik­ing.
