  This program is released under the terms of the GNU General Public
  License (GNU GPL).

  You can find a copy of the license in the file COPYING.


  In order to build this program you need a working GNOME environment
  version 2 or greater, with the development tools installed properly.
  The following is the detailed list of libraries you need:

	* glib	 		version >= 2.16.0
	* gtk 			version >= 2.18.0
	* gthread
 	* gmodule
	* gio-unix
	* intltool		version >= 0.35.0
	* unique		version >= 1.1.2

  While not mandatory, these libraries greatly increase Pix's
  basic usefulness:

	* exiv2			version >= 0.18
	  (embedded metadata support)

	* gstreamer		version >= 0.10
	  (video support)

	* libjpeg
	* libtiff
	  (jpeg and tiff writing support)

  These libraries are optional:

	* clutter		version >= 1.0.0
	* clutter-gtk		version >= 0.10.0
          (These libraries provide enhanced slideshow effects.)

	* libopenraw		version >= 0.0.8
          (This adds some support for RAW photos)

  If dcraw is present (and is in your executable search path),
  Pix can view full RAW photos.


  Pix has a plug-in system for extensions. Some standard features
  are implemented as extensions and are supplied with the standard
  distribution. Users may write (and share) additional extensions.


  Pix is based on gThumb 3.2.8.
  Many thanks to the original developers and to all the people who contributed to gThumb.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
