    Photostory: A simple Python program

    Hey guys - short and sweet post here as I'm pushed for time.

    Basically, I've developed a small application for ubuntu with Python. You can read all about it, and download it, at the following page (on my blog):

    If you guys could test this for me that'd be absolutely fantastic - so far I've only been able to test it with one webcam, and only on Lucid.

    Thanks!

    This is a really cool idea. I'll have to remember to do this.

    I have a suggestion though. From what I can tell there is no way to delete a photo if it did not turn out very well.

    Where are the photos stored since the first one I took, did not turn out.

    EDIT: Also I am on Lucid, and using the Playstation Eye

    Is the program working alright for you apart from not being able to delete?

    Anyway, the photos are stored in /usr/share/photostory/pictures, but deleting them will mess up the database I had to make to number the pictures correctly. If you make a blueprint for this feature I will eventually add it. ^_^

    Ok thanks, I deleted the picture, and modified the db acordingly.

    I did notice one other problem. If you start the program, and then plug in the usb webcam, the preview will not show up. I have to restart the program to see the preview.

    Also a suggestion for the video creation. It would be nice to see a file browser.

    Right, I'll add the file browser thing, put it down to laziness.

    As for the webcam, I COULD add a button saying 'Start Webcam' or similar, but I think it's easy enough to restart the program. Most people leave their webcams plugged in.

    I wonder how hard it is to get something into the software store? Anyone feel like designing a decent icon?

    I wipped up a quick 'Delete Picture' feature. I'm not familiar with lauchpad very well, so I'll just post it here.

    Nice idea for an app, obviously needs a bit of work though. Why not make a Launchpad team - with a few people helping out you'll stand a better chance of getting into the official repositories (and until such time, you can set up a PPA). As for the icon, I had a go at making one - I know it's nothing amazing but perhaps it will do until you can find a better one.
