Description Anders Magnusson 2006-07-08 20:49:28 UTC
When I right click on a jpeg file I can select to edit that file with the GIMP (f-spot even version controls the file for me. Nice!!).

When I right click on a RAW file (.CR2 in my case), the "Open With" menu is empty. Would it be possible to add so that I can open RAW files with GIMP as well?
Comment 1 Anders Magnusson 2006-07-08 21:07:06 UTC
Hmm, I guess this might be hard to fix since the GIMP can't save CR2 files (at least I don't think it can), so the file will be saved as a jpeg or tiff.

Maybe another way to solve this problem would be if you could select two images and "merge" them into one versioned image? This would also be a useful feature for all the images one have edited before starting to use f-spot...

F-Spot uses the freedesktop mime spec and only offers editing with applications that claim they can support that type.  No applications showing up in that menu is a failure of ufraw/gimp not of f-spot.
Comment 3 Anders Magnusson 2006-07-31 15:27:46 UTC
Ok. The stange thing is that if I right click on one of these files in Nautilus I can open it with the GIMP.
Maybe Nautilus also uses file extensions to figure out what kind of file it is dealing with?

Even if this is a bug in f-spot I don't think there is any point in fixing it at this time, since the GIMP can't save in the CR2 format anyway.
