Hi Matthias,

I use graphics/burplex to preview / make selects when I'm on the road,
it stores in a text file for easy scripting / batch processing. It's
in the ports tree. If you want to batch process 'quicker' on a
multi-core system you can try dcraw-m and multiraw, which are in gnats
pr at the moment. Otherwise the burplex port runs OK with regular

If you want something more elaborate try graphics/shotwell or
graphics/f-spot I suppose. If she is really into photography she
should check out RawTherapee for sure. But newer version than
currently in ports, I posted an update pr - which installs - but it
needs a little more work. I've been recently creating square
thumbnails manually with gimp and saving full size and thumbnail to
local computer, which has a public ip address. eliminates need to
upload anything :)
