Changing for the future
The PhotoFiltre LX project has begun, this is an effort to bring quick, simple image editing on Linux to the masses. PhotoFiltre LX will be a clone of the popular image editor currently only available on Microsoft Windows - PhotoFiltre.
After PhotoFiltre LX is developed it will be enhanced with more features and functionality. Apart from PhotoFiltre being my favourite image editor it is also extremely popular with many other people who would like to use it on Linux for its speed and simplicity.
PhotoFiltre LX currently needs many developers to work on this project. The project started out using Gtkmm and Imagemagick libraries but now development is beginning with Qt5 and a much better graphics library. The source code will be available under the GPL, you can download it here.
