Shotwell is a digital photo organizer designed for the GNOME desktop

from disk or camera. Shotwell can organize them in collections and in other
various ways. The viewer shows them in full-window or fullscreen mode and
presents them as galleries or slideshows. The integrated editor can rotate,
flip, crop and tag the photos, adjust the colors und remove red eyes. Export
is possible to facebook, Flickr or Youtube to share with others. It is able
to manage a lot of image formats such as JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF and Raw CR2.
