Usage: f-spot [options]
-b -basedir:PARAM path to the photo database folder
-? -help Show this help list
-help2 Show an additional help list
-i -import:PARAM import from the given uri
-p -photodir:PARAM default import folder
-shutdown shutdown a running f-spot instance
-slideshow display a slideshow
-usage Show usage syntax and exit
-V -version Display version and licensing information
-v -view view file(s) or directory(ies)
f-spot -b /path/to/different/folder/for/photos.db -p
I create a directory, like "work" and inside it another like ".db". I
start f-spot with
f-spot -b ~/work/.db -p ~/work
F-spot creates the database in ~/work/.db and when I import photos,
they go in ~/work.

If this can be done from commandline somehow, could somebody explain it to
me. I would be very interested.

I think this is a good idea for other reasons as well. For example. I
might have pictures that are personal and then pictures that I would
like to share with my family for example, where my family would use the
same computer. Or perhaps I have pictures that I take as a professional
and pictures taken of family and friends.
I think there might be a command line parameter for this already. Can
anybody verify? Is this what -basedir does?
Well even if there is, it would be nice to put this into the UI so it
can be changed without restarting and without looking up parameters and
re-starting the app.
