I work for the Yorba Foundation developing high-quality applications for the GNOME desktop. I led development of Shotwell, a photo manager, Geary, a lightweight email client, and California, a GNOME 3 calendar. You can follow me on the Yorba blog.

comment Shotwell with Dropbox
Also, you can specify Shotwell's data directory on the command-line using the -d option, i.e. "shotwell -d /home/jack/Dropbox/shotwell-data" This avoids symlink problems.

comment How to use Glades ActionGroup correctly?
Could you post more of your code? I don't understand why you would need to use the CCode modifier, you should be able to connect a handler to the signal directly and let Vala sort out the parameters.

comment How to troubleshoot photo import failure with Shotwell?
One note: the warning message you're seeing is coming from Exiv2, the metadata library Shotwell uses. It's benign and has nothing to do with your photos not being imported.

comment Is Face Recognition coming to Shotwell?
To follow up, we've committed a patch from Google Summer of Code student Valentin Barros that adds face categorization to Shotwell. The user manually selects faces and Shotwell creates folders of photos for each face. There's no automatic face recognition yet, but this is a good first step.

comment How do I make Shotwell regenerate all the thumbnails?
The problem with this solution is that any transformations the user has made to the photos -- rotation, crop, color correction -- won't be reflected in the thumbnails. Shotwell stores all thumbnails fully transformed.
