I'm looking for a free iPhoto alternative for OS X. I reinstalled my Mac, and lost the original iLife cd. So instead of trying to find it somewhere, I'd like to use an Open Source alternative instead.

Nice to have: * iPhoto library importer * Facebook exporter * Exporter for other online photo apps

I'm NOT looking for a pure online-based service. I want something for my desktop that acts as a good replacement.

It works with your iPhoto library and there is a plugin for Facebook export. Not sure about exporting to other online photo apps though.

Will Picasa work without having to push everything online? Or is the online part only an add-on? – Evert Mar 15 '10 at 9:00
@Evert: The online part is indeed an add-on. It's called "Picasa Web Albums". – fretje Mar 15 '10 at 9:02
