I just found this tool/program and I LOVE it. Bye Bye Picasa!
I do have a question however.
I have about 100Gb of pictures already on my server at /media/photos.
I know I can do a 'server add' and that will put the pictures into Gallery3, but it also seems to copy the pictures into gallery's ~/var/ directory. That creates duplicates of the images.
What I would like to know is if I can add all the photos in /media/photos to Gallery3 WITHOUT having them duplicated, and what this would mean if I do. Would the files be safe from modifications (assuming I put in proper permissions)? Many of the files are RAW format (already added the raw module).
Thanks so much for any info.
Side note: Found this project when I went looking for a frame that could read from my server off the local lan. Apparently, there is no such animal. But many frames read rss, and that is even more convenient as I can now give such a frame to grandparents and have my pictures on my machine. :D
