Reporting Bugs

Showfoto is an Open Source project. This means that it relies on its users to play their part by, at least, reporting problems and suggesting possible improvements.

Showfoto makes it as easy as possible for you to report bugs or suggest improvements. Wherever you are in the application the Help menu will include a Report Bugs option. This will display a message box with a highlighted link. Click on the link and your web browser will open the page for the reporting system. All the information required will already be filled in, just follow the instructions for completing your report.


Showfoto is a community supported project, which means that users and developers support one another. If you become a regular user of Showfoto you are encouraged to join the Showfoto Users Mailing List. You can start off by asking questions to other Showfoto users and hopefully soon you will be answering the support questions of others.

Getting Involved

There are many ways that you can get involved with the continued development of Showfoto. You do not need to be a software developer. You can help with documentation, translation and user interface design or just contribute really good ideas to the wish-list. You can also get involved by testing early development code as it is being developed and providing feedback to the developers. Of course, if you are a software developer then you can help to make Showfoto the best digital photograph application there is.
