Shotwell is the default digital photo organizer for Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat” and a new version (0.9) has been released. Shotwell is written in the Vala programming language. It imports photos using the libgphoto2 library, similar to other image organizers such as F-Spot and gThumb.
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.
To update Shotwell to version 0.9 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 upgraded you can find it under Applications -> Graphics -> Shotwell Photo Manager.
Some new features are:
New search bar that can filter by media type, rating, and text matching
Extensible plugin framework for Web publishing and slideshow transitions
Print multiple photos, and multiple photos per page
Configurable user directory pattern during import
Edit multiple photo titles at once
Improved rendering of underexposed RAW photos

Thanks for adding my RSS to your email 😉 The server where i host my site on is a “private” server, there are only 2 sites hosted on this server that’s n00bs on Ubuntu and another (company) site. The server admin is a friend of mine and takes good care of the server and how it runs. I don’t use adwords because i have to start a campaign and those things will cost me money.
