Using Windows-compatible applications on Linux

It is possible to run some applications written for Windows on Linux through Wine*.

The following softwares have been reported to work well:

- Adobe Photoshop version 7 to CS2
- Noise Ninja Standalone version 2.1
- Adobe DNG Converter
- Google Picasa

While Wine gets frequent updates and the number of supported applications grows with each release, most softwares written for Windows are still unusable on Linux.

(*) Wine is an emulation software that provide a compatibility layer to run Windows applications on a Linux system. The Windows operating system itself is therefore not needed.

Get the softwares / installation

Most of these applications are available from your distribution software channel and requires no manual installation. Select the applications you want from your package manager and click the install button. You may have to enable extra repositories to access them all. Please refer to your distribution manual for more details.

For softwares not available through your distribution software channel, refer to the application's website and follow their instructions.

Further Reading

- Linux Photography (blog)

Linux Photography is a blog dedicated to digital photography on Linux. Its author, Joel Cornuz, discusses color management, workflow, photography techniques, printing and much more. Think of it as a giant tutorial.

- Gimp 2 For Photographers (book)


GIMP 2 for Photographers" has evolved from the classroom materials which the author developed and taught in courses and workshops on image editing with the GIMP. It covers the basics of image editing and guides the reader through the functions and tools of the GIMP from simple adjustments to more advanced techniques of working with layers and masks

Good idea - you missed gimpshop though under image manipulation etc. I'd also recommend xnview and irfanview for inclusion in the photo manager section. Might not be bad to mention dcraw in the RAW section, since it's the daddy of them all :)

IrfanView.. well, it's a Windows application, so it doesn't really belong here, and I'm not fond of adding all "wine-compatible" apps here either.

Gimpshop? I'm only worried that is not actively developed anymore. It's still using Gimp's old code base and I saw no mention that they would re-sync it with the current Gimp tree. Do you have any news?

I added xnview.

dcraw... yes... but it it's mostly used as a library which other applications depend on. I prefer to opt it out to keep the list readable (not going to list imageMagick either for the same reason, we would end up with a 3 pages list if we go this path).

Fair enough. I was unaware that gimpshop was no longer being actively developed, that's a bit sad. That said, I think Krita is only going to keep continuing to eat into the GIMP users portion. I was sure that Irfanview offered a Linux version, but it seems not. xnview it is then.

Thanks... This is a useful thread for me. I guess not too many other people are interested, but at least you'll get a free bump.

I just added Fotoxx and PhotoPrint to the list, as well as a quick description for each softwares. Enjoy!

digiKam has batch RAW conversion

Based on the link I would not call Fotoxx an image editor on par with gimp or krita. An Image editor should have brushes or pens or something similar. with the exception of HDR and panorama stitching digiKam can do everything shown in that Fotoxx link and more.

I wasn't quite sure how to categorize Fotoxx, it doesn't fit well in any of these categories, yet it's not specific enough to have a category of its own. "Image Manipulation" is probably the "less worse" match.

digiKam can indeed do a lot of things and a better description of it would make it better justice for sure. I may also add it to the "Image Manipulation" category, or just review the categorization altogether. I put this list up pretty quickly and tried to keep it brief. Feel free to provide some copy :)

I've never used Photomatix, so I can't tell.

As for Fotoxx, I added it to the list mostly because of its originality. The user interface is weird and doesn't match the rest of the desktop, but it's a no brainer to use: all tools are a click away. Very different from the traditional image manipulation softwares (Photoshop, Krita, Gimp...).

I haven't tested Fotoxx enough to tell about the output quality. Try and let me know, ok :)

Just because something isn't actively developed doesn't mean that it's not usable.

I've never said so. I'm compiling a limited list of applications best fitted for the job, not an extensive one. I see no point listing all possibilities for the sake of it.

In this context, I prefer to promote up-to-date applications over oldies any day. Especially when these recent applications do everything the old ones did and in a more pleasant way. Xnview's main interest is its large support for eclectic formats, but in a photography-related environment it's close to useless. Not to mention the lack of updates poses security concerns.


My gear: EOS 60D | EF-S 10-18 STM | Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 | EF-S 24 STM | EF 50 F/1.8 | EF-S 55-250 IS | EF 100 F/2.8 macro | 430EX.
