Fotoxx is a program for improving digital photos. It allows you to navigate through large image directories using a window of thumbnail images, create HDR (high dynamic range) images by combining bright and dark images to improve details visible in both bright and dark areas, create panoramas by joining overlapped images, adjust brightness and color intensity independently for different underlying brightness levels, reduce fog or haze by removing "whiteness" and intensifying colors, rotate an image (level a tilted image or turn 90 degrees), remove red-eyes from electronic flash photos, sharpen, resize, or crop images, reduce noise in low-light photos, change color depth, and stretch an image by dragging the mouse.

This is Jim Knoble's implementation of the ssh-askpass program, originally called x11-ssh-askpass upstream. It is built on low-level X11 libraries, and therefore has minimal dependencies.

Other ssh-askpass programs are available, some of which may integrate better into various desktop environments.
