Request: Crop/pad image to aspect ratio

Let's say we have a bunch of images with varying dimensions (w×h) and I want them all to fit into a 16:9 canvas, but I don't want to define a fixed size (like 1920×1080px). The wider side should stay the same, only the narrow side of the image should be padded with a given color or transparency unti...

Re: Possible solution for Linux distribution problems

One thing I'm missing is a .desktop file on Gnome. I can't find the program on the activities view, I have to launch XnConvert via console.

Re: Possible solution for Linux distribution problems

FYI: XnViewMP and XnConvert are now available on Flathub. Not up on the website yet, but can be installed already via console.

Re: Possible solution for Linux distribution problems

I am in the process of submitting them to the Flathub repo.
Cool, thanks for the initiative.

XnView MP on the Ubuntu Snap Store

https://snapcraft.io/xnviewmp

Doesn't look like it's official. I'm not sure how I should feel about a 3rd party being involved. Is this sanctioned by the developer?

XnConvert MP (XnView batch convert as multi-platform standalone program) is available.
Erm… and where? Or is XnConvert == XnConvert MP?

Re: Possible solution for Linux distribution problems

There's https://flathub.org/ now, where you can publish your software, if you want. The configs are all hosted on Github, so all you have to do is fork the Flathub project, add your config and add a pull request. More details here: https://github.com/flathub/flathub/wiki/App-Submission It's an easy ...

Not exactly sure what you're picturing, but yeah. Something along those lines. As long as there is no quality reduction through re-encoding of JPEGs involved.

Re: Please add additional JPEG encoders like MozJPEG and Guetzli!

+1 for MozJPEG Guetzli is good at compression, but takes literally forever to encode with, neither supports progressive encoding nor color profiles. MozJPEG is about as good at compression and supports the other 2 things I mentioned while being a lot faster than Guetzli. Couldn't this be implemented...

Re: Possible solution for Linux distribution problems

what is better? Flatpak, Appimage or Snapcraft? Both Flatpak and Appimage are fine IMO. Problem with Snap is that the only (offical?) way to distribute them is the Ubuntu Snap Store unless you host your own. And again, the .deb release already works fine, but the .rpm one doesn't and the reason why...

Re: XnConvert 1.75

The 64bit TGZ archive version launches on Fedora 26, but all the text is invisible. I can mouse select it, but it doesn't show up.
