The best piece of software for simple cropping of images seems (to me) to be Shotwell Photo Viewer, especially as I find GIMP's cropping methods (AutoCropping & Zealous Cropping) incomprehensible. I can start Shotwell Photo Viewer by right clicking the image file (in Nautilus).
So in 12.04, shotwell was working fine, I could view all my photos and everything was tagged and just great.
The photos and profile used was copied over from another 12.04 install and I simply ran shotwell and everything was there, tags and all.
During 12.10 testing, I copied over the .shotwell from 12.04 again, along with all my photos but it finds nothing, says nothing is in my library.
Shotwell is the Ubuntu’s default photo manager. It lets you import photos from disk or camera, organize them in various ways, view them in full-window or fullscreen mode, and export them to share with others. It can also publish photos on various websites such as PicasaWeb, Flickr, Facebook and more.
This is a rather baffling problem.
Running Fedora 16 LXDE spin on my netbook. I removed the default (gpicview?) image viewer because I preferred Shotwell. Now my problem is that I cannot find a way to set Shotwell Viewer as the default image viewing application. For PNG's it automatically opens the viewer, but JPG's open the Shotwell photo manager.
Hi,I just installed ArchLinux on my new Notebook (Thinkpad W520). Now I tried to import photos from my SD-Card on my HDD with shotwell. The import works, but when the month contains an umlaut (e.g. March in Germin is März -> "ä"), it does not display the date and also does not categorize those photos correctly.
I deleted the folders in ~/.cache/shotwell and ~/.local/share/shotwell in order to force shotwell to make a complete scan of the Pictures folder.I also did the steps explained in the FAQ.I found that shotwell import very few photos (40 of more than 4,000) and the one that imported appeared in the log as: L 1592 2012-11-29 17:48:18 [DBG] BatchImport.vala:1827: Importing /home/miguel/Imágenes/2007/0
