Shotwell 0.9.2 Is Released

Yorba has released version 0.9.2 of Shotwell, an update to their digital photo organizer. This is a bug fix release that fixes a translation issue and several critical publishing bugs. They recommend all users to update.

To install Shotwell open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and copy+paste the following lines:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install shotwell

When Shotwell is installed you can find it under Applications -> Graphics -> Shotwell Photo Manager. If you already have Shotwell and the yorba ppa installed Shotwell will be updated to the latest verstion after a system update.

Shotwell can import photos and videos from a digital camera directly. Shotwell automatically groups photos and videos by date, and supports tagging. Its image editing features allow users to rotate, crop, eliminate red eye, and adjust levels and color balance. It also features an auto “enhance” option that will attempt to guess appropriate levels for the image. Shotwell then allows users to publish their images and videos to Facebook, Flickr, Picasa Web Albums, Piwigo, and YouTube.

I rarely leave comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here Shotwell 0.
9.2 Is Released | n00bs on Ubuntu. And I do have a couple of
questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it seem like some of these remarks come across like left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of every one of your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
