  • simple, entirely file-based design -- no databases. just write to exif meta data on images themselves. so everything is future-proof and no lockin. (does have a .json file cache, but it can be fully regenerated from exif..)

  • sync with e.g., google drive using the drive sync thing.

  • use gimp for photo retouching, or preview

File Structure

  • Main dir: ~/Pix
  • All images live in one common directory: ~/Pix/All
  • Folders for specific albums have symbolic links to original pics in ../All/img.jpg
  • DND / Copy/Paste operations create these symlinks, except if going into the trash -- or all


  • rotate left not working! maybe just on helif?

  • add refresh from exif button

  • select-all
