This is one of the things I was looking for. Could you be a bit more
specific on how to do this? AFAIR, I haven't come across this on my
google searches. I have seen how to launch others programs though
(gthumb, e.g.) but nothing with the kind of a button you talk of.

I need to check about this with the user. He is using Hardy (has f-spot
ver 0.4.x?) and I know Intrepid has a newer version of f-spot.
