Fat Penguin Favorite Linux App for 2006: F-Spot

Scott Rippee @ 1:01 am January 18th, 2007

From the F-Spot Site:

F-Spot simplifies digital photography by providing intuitive tools to help you share, touch-up, find and organize your images.

This is a little vague, as it doesn’t mention my two favorite features. 1. Displaying a time line of photos (you can skid the bar over to 2001 and check out your photos from then). 2. Packs a useful image tagging system (create tags, select drag photos onto tags, see a photo as the icon for the tag)

Fat Features:

  1. Photo Time Line - time based view of entire photo collection
  2. Image tagging system
  3. Export photos to the web (Flickr, Picasa, or static pages)
  4. Imports photos directly from digital camera
  5. Keeps photos organized (on the hard drive) in folders according to date
  6. Intuitive
  7. Quick photo edits

Fat Shout-Out:

Its a little past the new year now, however, I needed to get a FatPenguin shout out to my favorite Linux application of 2006: F-Spot personal photo management software. F-Spot may not be driving the web servers of the future or taking %s away from IEs user base, but it is one kick ass piece of photo management bliss.

Clean interface, intuitive, imports the photos directly from you camera, and quick basic editing functionality.
