Publish photos from Shotwell to Piwigo

Guillaume Viguier-Just has created a new connector for Shotwell to Publish your photos into Piwigo. Shotwell is the default photo organizer available on Ubuntu 10.10.

The connector is available for beta test. You can read instructions to run the Publish to Piwigo connector on https://github.com/guillaumev/piwigoshotwell : you will need to compile a patched Shotwell, but that’s only for beta testing. I don’t know yet how it will be packaged once it is stable, but that will be easy to install.

On Piwigo side, here are the requirements :
* Piwigo 2.1.5
* install + activate the pwg.images.addSimple plugin

If you are not a Piwigo user yet and you would like to test the Shotwell connector without worrying about Piwigo installation, create an free trial account on Piwigo.com (the pwg.images.addSimple plugin is activated by default).

Publish photos from Lightroom to Piwigo

Vladimir Vinogradsky has created a new Adobe Lightroom plug-in to export photos in your Piwigo gallery. It is currently in beta test. Piwigo API has been improved to make it more compliant with Lightroom plug-in needs. You will need Piwigo 2.1.5 + the pwg.images.addSimple plugin to perform tests. Plugin pwg.images.addSimple will be integrated into Piwigo core in release 2.2.

If you are not a Piwigo user yet and you would like to test the Lightroom plugin without worrying about Piwigo installation, create an free trial account on Piwigo.com (the pwg.images.addSimple plugin is activated by default).

Piwigo 2.1.4 and community feedback

2 days ago we released Piwigo 2.1.4. It doesn’t fix any vulnerability this time. A few small bugs were fixed and five languages were added : Swedish (Svenska), Serbian (Српски), Hebrew (עברית), Slovak (Slovensky), Slovenian (Slovenšcina). Great piece of work from the translation team coordinated by ddtddt.

Unfortunately, while fixing a bug I introduced a new bug and this is where the strengh of the Piwigo community takes action! 4 hours after the new release was announced on the forum (and not on the newsletter yet) we got 3 users reporting the bug.

Of course I’m not happy to have introduced a bug, even if it is a minor bug that needs several conditions to be reproduced and that corrupts no data. But on the other side I’m pleased to see Piwigo community updating very quickly *, testing and reporting problems.

The bug is already fixed and we should release Piwigo 2.1.5 in 2 or 3 days.

* with the automatic upgrade, only a few clicks are required to upgrade.
