The purpose of this email is to see what people are doing to manage/edit
their photos on Linux.
I have been using Kphotoalbum for a while, and here is my 'toolset'
- kphotoalbum : to manage images
- gqview : to review images to keep or throw away. It is pretty fast
and simple to use.
- gimp : to edit/crop
- some home grown shell scripts for
> autorotate images based on exif (jhead)
> resize images ('convert' from ImageMagic tools)
> add some watermark before pushing the images to web (convert again)
(the reason I am doing this is because the images exported by HTML
export of Kphotoalbum have 'low jpeg quality' settings thus look grainy.
I replace the images with my resized version (jpg quality = 85%). And
there is no way to set the JPG quality rating during export (will file a
feature request on this)
I am pretty well settled into this routine and it works for me (I don't
have RAW images, I mostly deal with JPGs.)
So what other software you have found useful. Can you share them here?
