Irfanview works very well under Wine in Linux. It can do all kinds
of adjustments, edits, cropping, lossless JPG rotation,
resizing/resampling, and format conversions. It will even open Gimp
if you want more advanced editing. Free download link at
www.irfanview.com . Also, get the Irfanview plugins, which also work
under Wine in Linux.
