I still haven’t upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 yet. I have been procrastinating, but I have been reading about the new Shotwell. Since I have been having issues with uploading to Facebook directly from F-Spot, I thought I would give it a shot.
To, upgrade, I basically followed the directions on the Shotwell website. It is important to use the ppa:yorba/ppa repository because that will give you the new 0.7 version with the import from F-Spot tool.
First, I was excited to see that the Facebook upload worked with no problems. Now, it time to get our vacation pictures uploaded!
I did notice that the tag features were not near as robust in Shotwell. I didn’t see Event tags, People tags, etc. Most importantly, I missed the feature of F-Spot where I could drag and drop tags to search on multiple tags. F-Spot’s searching features far surpassed Shotwell’s.
That is just a first impression. I need to spend some more time with it to get a better feel.
