digiKam is da blast!

Filed under
Software

I have never paid much attention to digiKam until a friend at a forum I frequent suggested it as a worthy addition to the Users' recommendation section in my New cool list of Linux must have programs. This gave me an opportunity to try digiKam in earnest and see what it's all about.

Boy, digiKam is a great surprise! Follow me for a spin.

digiKam

Officially, on paper, digiKam is an advanced digital photo management application for Linux, Windows and Mac. In reality, it is much more. In this review, I will try to present some of the myriad features of this phenomenal program.

I started digiKam on my openSUSE 11.0 installation, where it comes installed by default. At first look, digiKam seemed to be yet another classic KDE application, loaded with menus and sub-options. Until I started using it, that is.
