gphoto has been decommissioned; this page remains for historical purposes. For current photo support, we recommend gphoto2, which is an independently developed free software program not officially part of GNU (despite the name).
GNU Photo is free software for retrieving, organizing, web-authoring and storing images in various graphics file formats, or for display directly to a monitor from a range of supported digital still cameras.
GNU Photo is endorsed by and part of the GNU Project.
The entire GNU Photo tree is licensed under the GNU General Public License. In order to help enforce this policy, make sure that all of the camera libraries and utility code that you submit for inclusion in GNU Photo have a clearly stated license and copyright owner. If you are an active maintainer of a GNU Photo library, you could have an account on GNU machines. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org, if you don't have one.

Maintained: Someone looks after it. Odd Fixes: It has a maintainer but they don't have time to do much other than throw the odd patch in. See below. Orphan: No current maintainer [but maybe you could take the role as you write your new code]. Obsolete: Old code. Something tagged obsolete generally means it has been replaced by a better system and you should be using that.
