3 Nice presentation and good functionality except I usually use such software to take photos from one place and put in another - it lacks functionality in this respect e.g. right clicking and moving

5 Shotwell just works and I get my job done. I'm a heavy linux user for more than ten years. I've tested everything. darktable slow, slow, more slow, crash. digikam not slow: just crashes :) Shotwell just works. If you doesn't need RAW development, shotwell is a very good organizer with sensible defaults. No photomessy anymore!

4 I can't live without it. The definitive way to keep my pictures organized. It can improve and add some simple photo edition functions.

3 Very good digital organizer, I ma not too fond of the it works on existing folders, e.g. rotating a picture only changes teh metadata but actually does not rotate the picture in the folder.

3 Okay for a hobbyist or casual user. If you are (semi)pro, have image archives, or years of digital photots, this is not going to cut it.

3 This Ubuntu version cannot connect to online accounts under Cinnamon, because it’s missing Gnome’s central account settings. See http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1539

1 Era mi organizador personal, pero desde hace tiempo que no arranca correctamente, debido a un error en gstreamer aparentemente.

5 I wanted a simple camera picture importer. I want to plug in the camera, import pics. View thumbnails using arrow keys, Auto enhance and crop. If I need more I will open a gimp type program. Shotwell is working great for my default importer!

5 Excelente, deveria vir nativo no Linux Mint assim como vem no Ubuntu. É excelente para algumas edições como recortar ou redimensionar imagens. Recomendo o download

1 Installed with Synaptic on LMDE x64. it didn't show up in Menu, it didn't start when I attached a camera (Canon A490). When I ran it manually it crashed with the message: ERROR:src/db/DatabaseTable.c:1277:database_table_add_column: assertion failed: (res == Sqlite.OK) Aborted I'm not wasting any more time on this.

2 Built-in cataloguing and tagging makes it good for organizing your photos - if you are not using file folders for this, counter-productive for selecting and discarding in thumbnail view.

4 Shotwell is definitely a very good photo management app. The only thing missing in my opinion is the option to export to flickr sets. It by default uploads to flickr in a generic sense. Give me sets, and I will give it a 5. ;)

4 Probably the worst red-eye correction tool I have ever use. I can't even understand how developpers are not ashame of it (I'd remove it). Hopefully the organizer is great. I use gthumb as external editor (all the tools are better). Soft not as good with KDE

2 Too time consuming to set up if you want to list your photos as they are installed on your computer. I prefer GThumb for simple tasks and the awesome Digikam for advanced photo editing
