Personal photo management for GNOME desktop

F-Spot is a cross platform application for organizing thousands of photos. It shuns 'organizing in folders.' instead, metadata is the basis for viewing and drilling down the collection. Adding and maintaining metadata is easy and enjoyable in F-Spot.

Individual photos can be retouched and globally corrected (e.g. dynamic range, color), for sharing via the net, printing and viewing by consumers. The number and sophistication of the correction scales to the the ambition of users. An advanced form of corrections is that of batches of photos.

Beginners in the digital photo field can easily start using F-Spot. These and more advanced users are encouraged by F-Spot to grow their skills, to the point where they integrate more specialized photo manipulation software into their F-Spot workflow.

Empathy is a messaging program which supports text, voice, and video chat and file transfers over many different protocols. You can tell it about your accounts on all those services and do all your chatting within one application.

Empathy uses Telepathy for protocol support and has a user interface based on Gossip. Empathy is the default chat client in current versions of GNOME, making it easier for other GNOME applications to integrate collaboration functionality using Telepathy.

Features:

  1. Multi-protocol: Google Talk (Jabber/XMPP), MSN, IRC, Salut, AIM, Facebook, Yahoo!, Gadu Gadu, Groupwise, ICQ and QQ. (Supported protocols depend on installed Telepathy Connection Manager components.) Supports all protocols supported by Pidgin.
  2. File transfer for XMPP, and local networks. Voice and video call using SIP, XMPP and Google Talk.
  3. Some IRC support.
  4. Conversation theming (see list of supported Adium themes).
