Re: [Shotwell] shotwell-book: A new project that allows you to create a PDF photo book from your Shotwell library

Brian, this looks exciting and very promising.  We always warn against other applications reading directly from the database, and as your notes indicate, you're using the unaltered versions of the photos in your application.  There might be a better way to do this.

If you made your app compatible with nautilus-sendto, Shotwell's File -> Send To... operation will export all the selected photos (with full transformations) and execute your app.  That might make things easier for you.

There's also some work being done to make elementary's Contractor work with Geary.  If Shotwell supported Contractor, that would be another way for Shotwell to export its photos to your application.
