I like the name Phatch as it close to "patching photos" as well. Most
people remember it as a contraction of PHoto bATCH, which I would not
use as a name because it is too general and many programs are called
like that. Phatch is also not such a polluted namespace when you
google. There only seems to be chef cook called Phatch, of which I now
follow his recipes through Google Alerts. That is rather amusing than

Well, thanks a lot for all the compliments. Feel free to spread the
word or to get involved:
- by contributing back on the wiki (tutorials, review my non-native
english, screencasts, ...)
- by translating:
- at the moment Phatch has no known bugs, I really wish someone could
fine one so I can fix it:

I hope a lot of people give this program a try as it only requires you
to set up wxPython and PIL.
