my name is Paul and I'm studying Mechanical and Process Engineering in
I'm interested in participating in Fedora Summer Coding  this summer,
therefore I'm currently searching for a project. As one of my hobbies is
photography I'm really interested in photo management/editing software.
Because of this I think improving Shotwell would be a great project.
I have two ideas for which I would like to hear what you think about:
Improve the display of photos. Add zooming and add display modes like
"pass in" or "fill". Furthermore things like a "Compare photos" view
would be nice. Parts of this could be done using Clutter to create a
visually pleasing interface.
Create a GEGL-based processing system. I really like the idea behind
GEGL and think it would be great to integrate it into Shotwell. It's
kind of slow at the moment but there's ongoing work to improve that.
This could also include porting the current stuff over to GEGL.
I would really appreciate any kind of feedback!
with kind regards,
