Photo Management

So, I’ve been looking for some good photo management software for Linux. Specifically for the Gnome desktop.

The first I found was Glimmr. It’s a Flickr uploader for Gnome and is written in Mono/C#. It’s not really a photo management suite, mostly just a tool to tag and upload images to Flickr.

The second was F-Spot. F-Spot also has the ability to upload to Flickr. It also has a lot of other built-in functionality. It’s not designed specifically for Flickr as Glimmr is. F-Spot is more of a generic photo management suite.

I am unable to actively use F-Spot though as no thumbnails show for any of my images, they’re just blank. I have all required dependencies. It’s very disappointing as I was really excited to start using F-Spot. I even downloaded the lastest development version from the Gnome CVS, still no fix for the thumbnails though. I hung around in #mono on for a while hoping for some assistance, but none ever came.

Does anyone else have any suggestions for photo management software? I’ve tried Picasa, which is OK. But I really want something for Linux as that’s where I store all my photos. And I just plug my camera in via USB and it’ll be mounted on my desktop.
