I was looking for one of my photos. Thanks to my tags and descriptions I found the photo within seconds. I have a big backlog, but such metadata is so good to have, including to know what is on the photo - memory fade over time. I use

I am very satisfied that I last year changed to digiKam to manage my photos.

Not only that it is a free and open source software (donations are welcome from us users) and available on "all" platforms (Linux, Windows and macOS). It is also a very competent software!

Summer holiday photo contest for photos taken with /e/OS mobile phones is ongoing! Here is my contribution (more may come). See all in the contest in same thread. #/e/os community.e.foundation/t/a-sum

Now I've updated to the latest 8.1 release of digiKam. I will look more into my settings related to new features compared to 7.9 (I never upgraded to 8.0), and generally learn more about the new features. I am so impressed of this free and open software! digikam.org/

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.
