once you have your cf card or camera mounted you will need to transfer the pictures from it. the script I use for that is here. it performs the following functions:

o normalizes the image filename

o if there is a raw image but no jpeg, it creates a jpeg

o rotates the jpeg if required

o places the raw file into /pictures/raw/YYYY-MM

o places the jpeg file into /pictures/YYYY-MM

o makes the date of the jpeg match the time the picture was taken

I also wrote a quick and very dirty script to show the important differences in exif data between two images, resulting in output like this:

$ exifdiff dsc00448.jpg dsc00449.jpg
tag                      dsc00448.jpg                  dsc00449.jpg
-------------------------------------------------------------------
ExposureCompensation     -1/3                          -2/3
ShutterSpeed             1/200                         1/250
              

the script I wrote to do this is here

one thing I like to do is have the mtime of my images match the date it was taken. this is particularly because I have both a d70 and a coolpix 4300, so the image names overlap and sort in the wrong order. anyway, to sync the mtime to the exif date I use this simple script, after which 'ls -lt' and other tools like gthumb show things in the proper order.
