The operations I do the most are:
1. send the image by mail (but I prefer to save first so I can send more
than one file in each email);
Some nautilus-sendto integration would be in order then. I did this for
Evolution, so you can right-click on attachments and have them sent via
Bluetooth, or another person straight away, without having to save them
first on the hard disk.
2. edit the image with GIMP.
That's a given.
I don't think is a good idea for us to promote by default the
proprietary services (flickr, picasaweb). Maybe by default we should
offer uploading by sftp and to gallelry2 and flickr and picasaweb be
It's pretty much the same architecture. We should be using Conduit for
this (Conduit ships with a Totem plugin that allows you to upload the
currently playing video to Youtube, without going through a web browser,
or another application).

Cameras have a different usage pattern, usually you download from the
camera a large amount of images and do something with them (selection,
cropping) before publishing.
Red-eye removal, people tagging, keyword tagging... Different usage
