I'm looking for a better way to manage digital photos than the currently 
supplied gthumb.  My main complaint by that it's confusing for me and absolutely 
hopeless for my wife.  for me the major shortcomings are knowing whether or not 
the images have been removed from the camera, whether or not they have been 
copied to another location I can find later, and the ability to resize a copy of 
the image.

Any commandline operations are completely off the table given that I want my 
wife to be able to just use the digital camera without any fuss.  Macintosh and 
Windows operations seems simple by comparison and I'm hoping one of the Linux 
photo application developers has taken note from the applications that work.

remember, digital cameras and Linux should not be a career for the user, 
sometimes it's  a picture of Aunt Rose with pie on her face printed out two 
minutes after the event happened so she can take a copy home.
