digital photo organizer
  20 reviews

Shotwell is a digital photo organizer designed for the GNOME desktop environment. It allows you to import photos from disk or camera, organize them in various ways, view them in full-window or fullscreen mode, and export them to share with others. It is able to manage a lot of different image formats, also including raw CR2 files.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

У меня на нетбуке программа виснет ещё на этапе импортирования. Очень тяжело... Так что даже не оценить ее возможности

This Ubuntu version cannot connect to online accounts under Cinnamon, because it’s missing Gnome’s central account settings. See

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

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!

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

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.
