    Default Using Linux for Photography, can we make it better?

    Dear Friends,
    I am from across the causeway.

    Been actively re-engaged in photography for more than half a year.
    Didn't do much post production of the photos I shot, as I am a linux user, the choices of software available are limited.

    so far tried using F-spot, UFRaw, GIMP. but my old PC little SLOWwwww......

    then I Read this blog
    "Using Linux for Photography, Can we make it better?"
    http://jcornuz.wordpress.com/2009/03...ake-it-better/

    decided to buy a new PC, (huge RAM & good grahpic card) will load Ubuntu and try using and testing some of the software available. hopefully we can help to make it better too.

    Been trying to start a discussion and sharing going in local photography forum.
    Can anyone in Singapore share your experience on photography with linux as darkroom?? thanks.

    Linux Rules ok!!

    lightroom look alike I think.

    I have used ubuntu and its ability to boost graphics is awesome.

    so as a linux user, do you usually do dual-boot or you have a separate PC just running ubuntu?

    Hi,

    I started a few years back dual booting.
    cos of my Palm PDA and some games.
    now I am completely on Linux.
    EeeBuntu on my EEEpc, Xubuntu in office, probably ubuntu on my newly-acquired but not set up PC (for photo processing...)

    rgds,

    Actually,

    easy downloading and upgrading is in fact linux most attractive feature.
    no need to shut down or pay for upgrade.
    good luck.

    Apart from the softwares mentioned above, try out these alternatives for linux, as well.
    I'm hooked to these.

    1. digikam (GNU):

    2. Lightzone (Commercial & closed source)
