Just started using F-Spot. Over-all I think it has great
promise. For the record, I am using it on the latest Ubuntu
preview, and have .13.
I've been going through and tagging my pictures. I've found a few
bugs, like the inability to resize the windows, etc....but am OK with
this since it isn't even claiming to be beta quality yet.
But, what really surprised me, and I consider to be a usability bug is
the way it handles the boolean searches. I'll explain more
I have a friend named Carlos. He and I have been to many places
together. I have many photos of he and I all over the
place. I have tagged the photos by location, and who is in the
photo. I have pictures from Camp, Climbing, and the local bar for
Now, let's pretend I want to search my photos. I go and decide I
want to look at Climbing pictures, and then I decide I want to see
pictures of my friend Carlos. It seems logical that I select the
check boxes for Climbing and Carlos. I assumed (and most people
will too I believe) that checking 2 or more boxes performs the boolean
Show me every picture you have that are Climbing AND
Carlos. But, that is NOT what it is doing. It instead
shows me every picture I have that is marked Climbing OR Carlos.
Thus, instead of looking at pictures of us climbing together, like I
wanted, I am looking at pictures of him at the bar. Which is
great, but not m goal at that moment.
Is this a bug or intentional? If it is intentional, may I suggest
you modify this? I don't know c#, but maybe I'll download and
stare at the code. This is supposed to be a high-level language,
and the code base can't be that huge, it's a new project. If I do
decide to do this, could anyone give me a pointer on where the boolean
logic would be for this so I can find what I'm looking for more quickly?
