My first picture edited with my new workflow and 100% #opensource software!
As RAW converter #rawtherapee was used and for selective editing #gimp was the programme of choice. My OS is #Linux of course 😄
I deleted Windows with all my #Adobe products three months ago... And it was a good decision! 😅

plot_circle: I have added a new function to my minimalistic 3d plotting library 😄
❗I moved my project on Gitlab to another account name❗
First test on the #librem5 qemu image was successful. My first Linux app fits well :)
I also started to write a plot library based on Cairo to realise a virtual representation of the 3D data.
I am now on #Gitlab with my #gnome #gtk application designed for the #librem5 (with #libhandy).
The Idea is to give photographers the possibility to calculate the position of the sun, moon and milky way to plan the perfect spot to take a picture.
I am not a programmer so please tell me if you would do something differently.
AND if you know how to make a 3D plot of a coordinate system in C (similar to matplotlib in python) please tell me! 😅
In my old version I managed timezones through my own calculations. Now I switched to GDateTime from #GLib.
Furthermore it is now possible to change the timezone in the app settings. The default timezone is the one used by the system.
Next week I want to connect the calculations of the position of sun, moon and milky way to the user interface.
News from my app #PicPlanner:
I worked a lot with libshumate which is GNOMEs map widget written for GTK 4. But I noticed that there was no signal emitted when a user changes the location of the map. It took me a lot of time and I haven't thought I could make it BUT I made my first merge request which adds this signal to #libshumate. I hope it gets merged this would be awesome 😥☺
Did you know that one of the ways Android and IOS reduce energy consumption is by using a unified system-level notification provider?
UnifiedPush is FOSS implementation of the same idea that could help projects such as #pinephone and #linuxphones in general by providing both a framework to reduce battery consumption and a more unified interface to code notifications on.
If you follow FOSS, would you please boost?
In the end, only a few lines of code were necessary but to figure out how to connect to a map provider was not that easy. I didn't knew that there was a "load_defaults" option which is nice 😅
I finally have a working map view in my app #PicPlanner.
I used the new #gnome library #libshumate which is the #gtk4 version of #libchamplain.
The ShumateSimpleMap widget is quite convenient to use!
The documentation however is nearly not existing and it was at least for me quite an effort to create a working widget. But now it looks nice 😊👍
I made good progress today and added a lot of GUI related code to #PicPlanner and much better I understand more how things work from day to day 😊
There is still a lot to do but I am quite happy with the progress and there are still some days left in the first month of 2022.
I just added the search bar. The next step will be to find how to correctly get the information from #Nominatim (Translate e.g. a city to coordinates). I already did this once but I think the way I did it would have been considered bad programming... 😅
I tried for hours to add desktop icons and symbolic icons to my app but it didn't work.
It took me 4!!! hours to notice that there is a difference between really installing an app and running it with #GNOME Builder.
Yes, afterwards it is obvious but for a newbie like me this wasn't.
So if you are new in the game: App icons only appear if you install the app so every file is at the right place on your system. Pressing play in GNOME Builder is not the same! 😄
I think I kind of understood how the #gnome ui works. #gtk is not that easy if you try to adopt the programming style as it is intended by gnome especially if you are a newbie as I am 😅
My #gitlab repository is up to date again. The application however is still quite useless because the UI is still not connected to the backend. I am reading a lot of 'C' literature and also other source code to learn.
My #goal for 2022: first stable release by the end of the year! 💯
dnglab 0.1 released! 🎉
Want to use your Canon R camera with #Linux? Here is an open-source app for you to convert CR3 RAW files into DNG to develop them with #darktable.

My Gitlab repository is a little bit outdated because I noticed some fundamental problems in my application structure. This is my first Linux application and I am not a programmer so I had no idea how an application should be structured. I looked at the source code of a view other GTK applications to learn how to do it better.
Long story short: I started to rewrite my application from scratch again and hope I do better this time 😅
It's FOSS is 9 years old 🥳

We are grateful to you all 🙏
Soooo cute 😄😅
Shot with a Canon EOS R5 and edited with ART (fork of Rawtherapee) on Manjaro Linux.
I love Linux as a photographer! I lately calibrated my monitor again and it is so easy with #displaycal in combination with a Datacolor Spyder 5.
But I was not able to make the calibration via #gnome color settings. It always gave me an error... Has anyone managed to do this?
I recently bought a Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera. The RAW files are now in a new CR3 format which is still not very well supported in Linux. However a fork of the RAW converter RawTherapee called ART fully supports them. Furthermore ART is extremely intuitive. I think this will be my new favourite editing programme! Here some examples 100% processed on Linux 😍
