google-drive-ocamlfuse is what you want. It integrates Google Drive as a removable drive into Pantheon Files and/or Nautilus. It is free too. Find detailled info on how to set it up (and to automatically mount at startup) here: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/09/mount-google-drive-in-linux-with-google.html Only issues I have is that it feels kinda slow (I ...

On elementary OS Loki 0.4, I solved the problem by installing dconf-editor sudo apt-get install dconf-editor Then with dconf-editor navigate to org/panthenon/photos/crop-settings and set last-crop-height, last-crop-menu-choice and last-crop-height values to 0. Please note it should be exactly zero otherwise it will not work!

You can't, yet: https://github.com/elementary/photos/issues/44 https://github.com/elementary/photos/issues/51 It's one of the features I'm hoping are added in the future: Working with photos in ElementaryOS

GIMP GIMP is a free graphic manipulation tool. Installation: From software center. You can also install it through the terminal, if you are comfortable doing that, by running this command: sudo apt-get install gimp For the latest version, with newer features, use a PPA as GIMP suggests: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp sudo apt-get ...

Removing the shotwell cache amounts to lose your database. In order to change the schema of your database: Make a copy of the database, Do echo "update versiontable set schema_version=20;" | sqlite3 ~/.local/share/shotwell/data/photo.db I used this to move back from pantheon-photos to shotwell, when I got this error message from Shotwell: "Your photo ...

It is not advisable to upgrade photos because, it may leads to incompatible issues. The reason is Shotwell 0.1.1 is based on schema 21 where as the version is 0.18 (or other) based on schema 20. But even you can view/open photos (images) from shotwell If still want latest version: From the output of apt-cache policy shotwell: ravan@ravan:~$ apt-cache ...

When searching for Gwenview I came across Eye of Gnome (eog). https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/EyeOfGnome It doesn't have as many editing tools, but it also doesn't have most of the issues I ran into with Photos. (The file order is wrong, but you can open a slideshow. And you can open multiple images in the same window, which makes that less painful). You can ...

[ or ] but it only rotates the image right, so you need to press the key 3 times to rotate it to the left. Alt Gr 9 does the same thing. Ctrl [ or ] also rotates the image to the right. Ctrl Shift [ or ] doesn't work.

This was a bug with Photos which has recently been fixed. This should be resolved the next time Photos gets a new release and receives an update.

Strangely enough, on my PC Photos doesn't auto-import anything when I connect my camera. At the same time I couldn't find a preference inside the app which could be responsible for that behavior, let alone 'Do not convert my RAWs into JPGs please' option. There's a preference called 'Watch library for new files' though, so try turning that off and see if it ...

unfortunately there's no way to mount iOS devices on Linux anymore for some time. At least not any that I'm aware of. I just use icloud/apple photos to access my images.

I had a somewhat similar question before: File that handles raw thumbnails in Files, but I didn't get a useful answer. I was considering a Sigma camera and I wanted the camera raw thumbnails in pantheon-files, but I've changed my mind about the Sigma anyway. The only editable thumbnails files I could find were /etc/xdg/tumbler/tumbler.rc and /usr/share/...

It does not have a database file that it puts them in. If you import a picture it will create dated folders [2016-10-10] or you can drag the photo in to the pictures folder directly and it will load

The stuff you're looking for would appear to live in... ~/.local/share/pantheon-photos This directory contains a data directory, which contains 2 database files. Those 2 files appear to be in SQLite format, and you should be able to open and edit them using an SQLite browser such as GUI Editor for SQLite Databases Naturally the .bak file seems to be a ...

I am not aware of any built-in way of syncing however, I would give overgrive a look they've got a 14 day trial and its $4.99 for a license. Basically integrates Google Drive into your desktop and by some parallels possibly your Google photos.

Try Gwenview instead. It's available via Softwarecenter. Change in Setup -> Applications -> Image Viewer

There are two good tools to edit meta-data of image-files: exiftool and exiv2 exiftool: You will find exif here: official site It also has a graphical frontend: frontend for exif exiv2: This is a better tool than exiftool. You can find it here: official site. Here is a man page on how to use this: exiv2 man page

The same happens on my laptop.I think this is an issue with pantheon-photos which is caused by it checking by the file extension (not mime type) and there is nothing we can do about it except creating an issue at https://launchpad.net/pantheon-photos

Photos is the "The elementary continuation of Shotwell", so I think it is advisable to stick with it. Besides that, shotwell 0.22 can be installed only on Ubuntu 14.10+ while freya is based on 14.04.

You can use PImagizer to resize one by one, or use Converseen to resize many images. You can install it by the command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install converseen ]3
