do you know Inline Gallery?

I agree; there are some things that are best done by desktop software, 
and photo editing is one of them; I didn't know about f-spot (probably 
because I don't like the idea of a bazillion of gnome services eating 
memory - I already have Firefox and Thunderbird for that - hence I use 
xfce). Is the documentation of the protocols it uses for publishing 
available anywhere (in a shortened version, preferably :))?

I also don't understand very well how f-spot stores metadata; if it 
stores it in the photos, (as God and Adobe intended it to), then the 
only thing to do is a web service that implements one of the protocols 
used by f-spot for publishing, as Inline Gallery reads the said 
metadata; oherwise, a few more function calls are required :)
