A cross-platform photo manager application
Imaginario is a photo manager application written in Qt+QML. Initially written as a mobile application for Ubuntu phones and tablets, it has grown into a cross-platform application aiming to be used across different operating systems and form factors.
The current development focus is on preparing Imaginario to be used as a desktop application; mobile ports to Android and iOS are a bit further down the roadmap.
- Migrate photos from Shotwell, F-Spot (and others, if you request it)
- Adding metadata to images: tags, geolocation, title, description and rating
- Metadata can be embedded in the images or stored as a sidecar file
- Filter pictures by tags, date, geolocation, import roll
- Hide pictures containing specific user-defined tags
- Face detection and face/object tagging

How to install
Imaginario is available in a PPA for Ubuntu-based distributions:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mardy/imaginario sudo apt-get install imaginario
How to build
In order to test out the desktop version of Imaginario (and hopefully to contribute to its development ;-) ) please checkout the source code and follow these steps:
mkdir build && cd build qmake CONFIG+=desktop CONFIG+=debug PREFIX=/tmp/opt make install
This will install imaginario in
/tmp/opt, which will get cleared the next time
you reboot your computer; this is convenient if you don't want to risk messing
up your system just to try out the application.
In order to launch Imaginario:
cd /tmp/opt/share ../bin/imaginario
Have fun! :-)
