About PhotoFiltre LX

I started this project so that people who are casual graphics editors would feel perfectly comfortable using PhotoFiltre LX on Linux. The Gimp is overkill for most and PhotoFiltre will be one program that Linux users will not miss anymore.

At the moment PhotoFiltre is the only application I miss on my PC, nothing can compare to the speed, simplicity, usability and logicality of PhotoFiltre. I created this website with the intention of monitoring the project to port the original Delphi code but now I am involved with the development of a new PhotoFiltre clone using C++/GTKmm and Imagemagick. However it will be so much more than a clone as it will be updated with modern features. (like tabs for holding images instead of single windows).

I would like to thank Antonio Da Cruz the developer of PhotoFiltre for giving me the opportunity to bring his great software to the Linux platform. Also I would like to thank him for the permission to use PhotoFiltre in the name. I hope to make him proud one day!

About the Developer/Webmaster

My name is Dylan Coakley, I am a student living in Ireland with great interest in Linux and OpenSource software. I spent years in college learning how to program in C/C++, Java, Visual Basic, PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript. In the future I hope I can make great contributions to the world of OpenSource software.

I genuinely love programming, for me its an endless road full of learning and possibilities. Since my first experience with a computer, I was fasinated by technology and even still I follow all the latest developments daily. Programming as a hobby is an outlet to express my creative nature and is quite relaxing. I also enjoy foreign beers every now and again, gaming, jogging, soccer and reading.

Currently I work as a full-time web developer but I still love application programming and creating games. This is why I continue to work on many applications/games of my own. Hopefully at least one of my projects will be a great success in the future.

Other Projects

White Guardian

This is a 2D RPG game currently in heavy development. I have worked on this for a period of perhaps two months. I plan to release it on Android and PC in the future. It is developed with C code and you can follow its development on the forum thread. All code and graphics created by myself.

Further information: White Guardian.


This is a 2D side-scrolling shooter. It is based on one of my all time favourite 3D games "Urban Terror". Level design will be based on the 3D levels as a reference and gameplay will be somewhat similar to the 3D game. I throw a few hours into this every now and again. It is developed with C code and you can follow its development on the forum thread. All code and graphics created by myself.

Further information: UrbanTerror 2D.


Xwii is a Linux application to use your Nintendo Wiimote as a mouse pointer/gaming device on your PC. I took over the project with another great developer in the summer of 2010. The original creator/developer Nick Watts has handed the project to us to develop it further. It is already a highly popular application and hopefully in the future it will reach new heights.

Further information: Xwii.

Lotus Symphony Packages:

I created easy to install packages for Lotus Symphony 3 as many people complained they could not install the 32bit packages on 64bit systems. Although technically it violates the EULA to distribute modified packages I have been given permission to distribute from the product manager.
