    • 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
