Look here :D

Sorry, I think it is not that easy to create a package due to the dependencies.
vala and webkit are already in the repository, so okay.
What about gexiv2? -> http://www.salixos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=784
http://trac.yorba.org/wiki/gexiv2 wrote:gexiv2 is a GObject-based wrapper around the Exiv2 library. It makes the basic features of Exiv2 available to GNOME applications.

Shotwell 0.6 requires gexiv2 as a dependency.

gexiv2 is currently in alpha release. Yorba hopes gexiv2 will expand into a full-featured Exiv2 wrapper.

Yorba inherited the initial code from Mike Gemuende (his initial repository is here). Note that Shotwell will not work with his 0.0.1 version.
I am not able to go further yet ... :mrgreen:

Gexiv2 requires version 0.19 of exiv2. Exiv2 is a Slackware package and is currently at 0.18.2, so until whoever maintains the Slack package upgrades it, I can't upgrade Shotwell for the repo :cry: I have done so on my own system however, and it is a bit nicer to use so hopefully I'll be able to update it sooner rather than later.

The libraries won't be updated for 13.1, except for bugfix releases. So this has to wait for 13.2.

Why not stick with ristretto/gimp? What are the disadvantages towards shotwell?

Shotwell is a photo manager, not just a viewer. It includes tags to categorize photos and probably other managing functions, too.

I've just made my own package of the latest Shotwell. it is very good! although i did not like the fact that i had to compile 3 or 4 of required dependencies by myself, the end result was satisfying.
