Hi Roy, others,
I had no idea how it was going to work, or what distribution it was
going to be on first.
In windows, I use Picasa and it is fairly nice. The closest thing we
have in Linux is FL-Photo, and it lacks the email option that is in
Picasa. Other then that, the two are fairly similar.
Now, if we could get the FL-Photo programmer to work with the Picasa
programmers, and just tweak the FL-Photo program so it had some of the
features of Picasa like the option to email the photos? I know, that
is too much to ask...
