yesterday i translated 10pages of Ubuntu Manual…it’s about organizing,editing,cropping etc., of photos… this part describing abt F-SOPT
F-Spot is a full-featured personal photo management application for the GNOME desktop.
F-Spot simplifies digital photography by providing intuitive tools to help you share, touch-up, find and organize your images.
The most recent version of F-Spot is 0.6.2, released May 14, 2010. (Download)
For a list of what has changed, please check the Release News.
Binary packages are available from most distributions.
You can try F-Spot without installing anything by using Live CDs from many popular GNU/Linux distributions.
Gonzalo Paniagua developed a couple of new libraries: google-sharp to access a few Google services, and in particular Picasa and gnome-keyring-sharp, to access the Gnome Keyring from .NET applications.
gnome-keyring-sharp is a completely managed implementation, it basically speaks the keyring protocol instead of using a P/Invoke binding to call into native libraries, which is convenient as it is one dependency less on running applications.
Stephane Delcroix then developed a GUI for F-Spot to register your accounts, manage your albums and upload your pictures from F-Spot, the SVN version now has this fancy dialog box:
Simple User Interface
The main F-Spot user interface in Browse mode is shown. F-Spot supports 16 common files types, including JPEG, GIF, TIFF, RAW, and others.
Import your photos from your hard drive, camera (including PTP type), or iPod.
Photos can be tagged for searching and grouping, and the time line gives quick sense of temporal location, and quantity of photos taken. F-Spot can view and export EXIF and XMP meta-data in your images.
Other features include full-screen and slide show modes.
Editing photos in F-Spot is a breeze. Easily rotate, crop, resize, and adjust red eye and other color settings with a few simple clicks. Versioning ensures your originals are never altered.
Enter descriptions of photos that are saved in the actual file so other people and programs will be able to see them, whether they use F-Spot or not.
