Fotografix is a freeware graphics editing program for Microsoft Windows. It has been noted for being portable and light on system resources while still providing features found in larger software.[2][3]


Fotografix was initially released in 2009, followed by a series of updates through 2010 leading up to version 1.5, which is the current stable version. Fotografix 2 was announced in 2012 and is still in the early stages of development; a preview version was made available in November 2012.[4]


Apart from basic painting tools, Fotografix includes several image manipulation and correction tools. It also supports layers, along with some advanced features such as layer masks, adjustment layers and editable text layers.

Fotografix can open and save images in most common raster image formats. It can also open multi-layer images in Adobe Photoshop's PSD format and GIMP's XCF format, though layers can only be saved in Fotografix's native FGX format.
