When I tried to convince somebody to try Ubuntu, he tells me "OK, but I need to import my pictures, with the preferences I have entered on Windows Gallery (tags, and marks). I have a lot of pictures on my computer, and I have spend lot of time to organize them."
I checked this option on F-Spot and I didn't find anything to do this. This could be a good idea to help Windows' users (and why not MAC OS' users which I don't really know) to migrate under Ubuntu (Linux in general).
I know that this should not be a priority for the community, but if it interest a developer, I am pretty sure that this option will be very useful.
I can't use f-spot due its importing-ish way of working. I donwload a photo or receive from a contact, I put it in my photo folder.I can't open and import stuffs to f-spot all the time I get a new photo.
Why can f-spot not to work like rhythmbox? I do what I want to my musics directory and it is always ready to play them.
there is a F-spot importer add-on for ff and thunderbird.
It can import images directly to F-spot (and sort them into the F-spot file/folders structure)
