Open Source Photo/Image Mgmt – Riley Brandt Photography

First in a series of monthly posts about FOSS (free and open source software) photography management.   Currently, there are “at least” four  dozen FOSS apps for managing & editing photo content.

Note for movies, engineering or CAD, other graphical programs are available that will not be covered in these posts.

Hope you enjoy the variety of FOSS options.
