Pixelfed versus Vero for photography? I don't use any of them, only learned today Vero exist. As far as I can see, Vero does not communicate with Fediverse, nor opensource. But I have no idea about differences in use case, performance etc etc. Anyone who can enlighten me?

I have started to use to calibrate my monitor. It seems to be very competent, far more compentent than I am on the calibration topic. But I think manage to use it. I use it with my Spyder 5 colorimeter. I have noticed a few issues which I think are related to that I have installed DisplayCAL in form of a on , a container method to install software, it should need some more openings (sw permissions) than default.

Of unknown reason, I waited a month to upgrade my software to the new 7.9.0 release. I am still happy I moved over to digiKam, primarily as photo catalog manager, but I can also use it for editing etcetera. I intend to use eg and in addition, maybe more (now also ). (my migration in Swedish: hemrin.com/business-blog/365-b) The latest release: digikam.org/news/2022-12-05-7.

I recommend the PIXLS website for anyone who shot photos. It includes a list of free and open software for Android, iOS, Windows, macOS and Linux. Of course not exhaustive, but a good start. I use several of the listed softwares. pixls.us/

On the happy side: Birds IRL eating an ordinary day. A I shot a couple of days ago through a window, hence not so clear and sharp. Anyway, best effort, developed with .
As alternative to all talk about a non-IRL bird.
On the sad side:
- We must improve regarding the . What must I do better in my life?
- The war by in . So terrible and idiotic etc. Several other ongoing wars not to be forgotten.
- Too much more for one toot.

Exploring and learning more and more about digiKam to manage my photo catalog (and more features for photos).

I'm working on my migration to digiKam from Photoshop Elements Organizer to manage my photo catalog. It takes a while, it is not a full time engagement, but it seems as in the end I will have most metadata with me automatically and by hand.

Tidying up catalogs in my outdated version of Photoshop Elements Organizer. Then I will import to Lightroom, as interim step. Lightroom can import and export better (eg xmp sidecar). The import into which I plan to use as photo catalog. That's the plan...!

I have installed and done my first trial with Entangle software - taking photographs with a digital camera completely controlled from the computer ("tethering"). It seems to simply work perfect with my Nikon D90. entangle-photo.org/

A few photos of flowers. I explore the free and open soure RawTherapee software for raw photo developing. hemrin.com/business-blog/347-f
