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)
Main Window Screenshot:
- Photo Time Line - time based view of entire photo collection
- Image tagging system
- Export photos to the web (Flickr, Picasa, or static pages)
- Imports photos directly from digital camera
- Keeps photos organized (on the hard drive) in folders according to date
- Quick photo edits
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.
Tag Editing Screenshot:
Clean interface, intuitive, imports the photos directly from you camera, and quick basic editing functionality.
