Paint.NET for Ubuntu Linux

If you want to useĀ Paint.NET on linux you can try a port called paint-mono.

paint-mono
You could compile it from source, but there are precompiled packages for Ubuntu/Debian. Download it form here; you’ll also need this package.

It’s definitely not as feature rich as the gimp, but it looks nice and it’s easy to use.

RawTherapee v3.0 alpha 1

The first alpha version of RawTherapee 3.0 is available for download and the license was changed to GPL. I’ve tried it on Ubuntu linux and it’s quite stable for an alpha version. and the new user interface gives you more room for your pictures. If you want a good photo workflow software, you could try RawTherapee; just download v2.4 if you need it for daily use.

Linux html gallery script

I needed a simple html gallery, so I wrote a script to generate it. You can download it from here.

Just put the images in a folder (only .jpg files are supported), copy the script in the same folder and run it. You can also run it from the terminal with the path to the pictures folder as a parameter. The title of the gallery will be the folder’s name.

The script also creates a zip archive with all the pictures, so your visitors can download them all with just one click.

You can do whatever you want with it, but I’d like to see what changes you make to it, so a comment with the improvements would be appreciated.

Here’s a screenshot:

Batch resize/rename pictures

My camera uses file names like DSCF0000.JPG (upper case). This isn’t a problem on windows, but linux is case sensitive and I want lower case extensions. For this I open a terminal, go to the folder where I downloaded my pictures, and type:

for i in *; do j=`echo $i | cut -d . -f 1`; j=$j".jpg"; mv $i $j; done

To resize my images I use something like:

mogrify -resize 1024 -quality 70 *.jpg

You must have ImageMagick installed if you want to use mogrify. Mogrify replaces the original files, so take care when you use it!
