Yorba has released version 0.9.2 of Shotwell, an update to their digital photo organizer. This is a bug fix release that fixes a translation issue and several critical publishing bugs. They recommend all users to update.
To install Shotwell open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install shotwell
When Shotwell is installed you can find it under Applications -> Graphics -> Shotwell Photo Manager. If you already have Shotwell and the yorba ppa installed Shotwell will be updated to the latest verstion after a system update.
Shotwell can import photos and videos from a digital camera directly. Shotwell automatically groups photos and videos by date, and supports tagging. Its image editing features allow users to rotate, crop, eliminate red eye, and adjust levels and color balance. It also features an auto “enhance” option that will attempt to guess appropriate levels for the image. Shotwell then allows users to publish their images and videos to Facebook, Flickr, Picasa Web Albums, Piwigo, and YouTube.
