I found the F-Spot ;-)

I found another great application on my Ubuntu desktop today I hadn’t used before. It’s a photo editor/manager called F-Spot, kind of like an open-source Picasa if you will. I thought I’d share my experiences.

It all came about because I signed up for a Flickr account, a bit late in the game I know but I’ve never bothered with Filckr before. Mainly because I don’t have a decent digital camera, thats a problem. I have a new camera phone on the way which is good enough for what I need and with the ability to integrate my Flickr feed with my Jaiku account I decided it was time to sign up. I thought I’d probably use Picasa to manage my photos and upload to Flickr, I always have in the past. When I tried to use it though I had real trouble, it just crashed on me twice as soon as I opened it and I wasn’t a happy bunny. Then I noticed the little F-Spot icon on the menu and thought I might as well give it a shot.

It’s great, the time line slider widget at the top is really cool and integration with Flickr worked like a dream, I would even go as far as to say I like it more than Picasa and it came installed with Ubuntu. How cool is that? Another example of how open-source rules.

Now the poor people who follow me on Jaiku will have to look at my ugly mug as well as read my rantings šŸ˜€
