    F-Spot makes sense since you are using Gnome/OpenBox. Since I am on the KDE side of things I prefer DigiKam over F-Spot. Its plugins are what I like the best. Unfortunately, I do not use it with my camera. I’m a “take the card out, plug it into my media reader, and transfer” type of guy. So I am not quite sure if DigiKam is what you are after. You can always apt-get it and see if it does what you want though.

    Neat, how’s the RAW (particularly CR2) support in j-Brout??? I shoot EVERYTHING in RAW

    @heathenx – I’m going to give F-spot a try just to see how it imports photos – into what kind of directory structure and if it’s configurable. I have nothing against using Digikam if it does what I need.

    @simon – A lot of what I shoot is in RAW too. Unfortunately jBrout doesn’t import RAW files (I’m not sure they have IPTC data fields anyway). I’ve played with jBrout only briefly and it does work, but the tagging method seems to be pretty klunky compared to F-Spot or Flickr. I wish there was a file system that used some sort of open metadata on all types of files. Just having a searchable open tag field built into every file would be a godsend.

    Well,if F-Spot won’t cut it for you, and for those who use RAW, I would recommend Bibble Pro from
    It gives you possibility to do edit IPTC data in batch, make batch edits, applying settings to multiple pictures, and also customize work flows. It is not free, but I think it is work the investment, since you can do everything in one pleace. Import, manage, develop, edit etc. And if you get the pro, you can use it on the three platforms if you want. And RAW processing is pretty fast, check it out, downloading the trial version sure convinced me.
