Trying to learn the 'Shotwell' software application

Asked by articdisappearing on 2011-08-03

I am trying to learn the ins and outs of the 'Shotwell' software. I have no trouble as far as to uploading my pictures from my Olympus FE-47 camera. I do however have no clue of how to utilize the 'Shotwell' software to manipulate [resize, change attributes, etc.] once the pictures are there in the library. I shift over menu headings but I do not have all options highlighted.
I also have DigiKam but I am on an old system that is not worth installing KDE on since I will be building a new system in the second week of Sept.
If I could get help with the resizing via 'Shotwell' [if the feature exist] I would be most in a dept of gratitude. Thank You ahead for your help :)

Shotwell is a photo management application, not an image editor. If you want to resize photos, I recommend checking out Gimp, which is in the official Ubuntu repository. Once installed, you can use Shotwell to open images in Gimp, or just open them directly from Nautilus.
