How To Install Photini 15.08 On Ubuntu 15.04 And Ubuntu 14.04

As you may know, Phototini is an open-source digital photograph metadata editing application, enabling the users to easily edit the title, description, time and date, copyright, creator fields and GPS coordinates of the camera’s position when the picture was taken.

Also, it has support for EXIF, IPTC and XMP metadata, can edit the metadata of more than one photo simultaneously and has a feature for uploading photos to Flickr or Picasa.

The latest version available is Photini 15.11, which has been recently released, coming with changes:

  • Added time zone to ‘technical’ tab.
  • Allow setting of date/time ‘resolution’.
  • Flickr uploader sets date ‘granularity’.
  • Dropped use of pyexiv2 library.

Installation instructions:

Up to date packages are available via some third party PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu and derivative systems is easy. All you need to do is add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the photini package:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dhor/myway
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install photini

Optional, to remove photini, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove photini

The installation instructions should work on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint 6, Peppermint 5, LXLE 14.04 and Linux Lite 2.
