Have some of you sometimes felt the need for sorting your pictures in a
more organized way than the "month - event" model allows for ?
When I want to make a picture, I almost always end up taking over a
dozen very similar, but slightly different shots, varying angle,
aperture, speed, or simply the point in time while keeping the same
subject and framing.
I'm also looking into producing HDR pictures; in that regard I already
have a few series of 10+ pictures framed exactly alike, with extensive
exposure bracketing used.
It's not uncommon for me to end up with events that hold over 100
pictures. Scrolling through the thumbnails to locate the series I want
to look at becomes difficult, especially because my computer's CPU gets
heavily solicited by all that refreshing, and display gets delayed.
I would sure love to be able to group these series of pictures inside a
node of their own in Shotwell's lateral pane, while still keeping them
grouped under a parent node that matches the place or event I was when
Do other users agree or disagree ?
