Struggling to Manage Your Ever-Growing Digital Photo Collection?

In this (what looks like a promo) article John Grand explains some of the issues with organizing your photos.
After reading this I went looking, and found Lodju (also available from Debian – apt-get lodju), and then looked into gThumb. It allows you to put photos into categories, and I spent an hour last night sorting some of my snaps! I backup to DVD almost once a month so hopefully my photos are reasonably safe! Now, if only gThumb would remember when I rotate my images! I don’t want to modify the originals, but having a rotated thumbnail would be great. Lodju does it!
