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);
2. edit the image with GIMP.

I don't think is a good idea for us to promote by default the usage of 
proprietary services (flickr, picasaweb). Maybe by default we should 
offer uploading by sftp and to gallelry2 and flickr and picasaweb be 
installable plug-ins.

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.
