digiKam is an advanced digital photo management application for KDE, which makes importing and organizing digital photos a "snap". The photos can be organized in albums which can be sorted chronologically, by directory layout or by custom collections.

Tired of the directory constraints? Don’t worry, digiKam also provides tagging functionality. You tag your images which can be spread out across multiple folders and digiKam provides fast and intuitive ways to browse these tagged images. You can also add comments and rating to your images. digiKam makes use of a fast and robust database to store these meta-informations which makes adding and editing of comments and tags very reliable.

digiKam makes use of KIPI plugins for lots of added functionality. KIPI (KDE Image Plugin Interface) is an initiative to create a common plugin infrastructure for digiKam, KPhotoAlbum, Showimg, and GwenView. Its aim is to allow development of image plugins which can be shared among KDE graphical applications.

An easy to use interface is provided that enables you to connect to your camera and preview, download and/or delete your images. digiKam includes too an image editor for image corrections and manipulations whitch can be extended by plugins.

Another tool, which most artists and photographers will be familiar with, is a Light Table. This tool assists artists and photographers with reviewing their work ensuring only the highest quality. A light table will show the artist their imperfections in which they can go and touch up. Well in digiKam, the light table function provides the user a similar experience. You can import a photo, drag it onto the light table, and touch up only the areas that need it.

The digiKam Image Editor has its own plugin subsystem with some common tools e.g. red eye correction or Gamma correction. Additional plugins are provided with the main application to process advanced corrections on image like color management, noise reduction, or special effects. digiKam Image Editor support all camera RAW file formats, 16 bits color depth, Exif/Makernote/IPTC/GPS metadata, Color management, tagging/rating/comments pictures, etc.

A lots of search tools are also available to be able to find specific photo on whole collection : Time line, Calendar, Advanced Search using multiple and complex database queries (tags, rating, keywords, date,

A stand-alone image editor version named Showfoto is also available. It runs without digiKam images database support, but provides all Image Editor plugins.

Tags are great but to be really useful they have to be stored in the file using IPTC. I move my photos around a lot so I'm not willing to spend time adding tags that will be lost when I switch to a different computer/program.

The killer graphic management app for me would read the tags from each file and store them in the database. Any changes would be written to the file first and then the database. If there ae differences between the database tags and the file tages, the file tags have precedence. ie the database is just a hack to increase speed.

Are there any plans to add this support? IPTC tagging libraries are available for linux...

This request is already reported by others Digikam users in bugs.kde.org :


Please, adding some comments if necessary. I think Digikam will support IPTC at 0.8.0 release...

I love the new tagging feature, I can manage my photos so much better now.
I also like the new image download dialog, it's very much improved. I especially like the fact that the progress bar now shows the overall download progress, not the progress of one single image at a time as before.

This plugin come from Kipi project (instead digikamplugins for 0.6.x).
You need to enable OpenGL in kipi .configure script. Read README file for more informations.

 GUI Cleanup Needed

 by meneerdik on: Dec 17 2004

This is a *great* app, but it is difficult to use. The application is a bit of a mess, too many entries in RMB menu's, it's not easy to remember where a particular feature can be found.

I guess this has to do with the different plugin systems that DigiKam uses, which makes it hard to keep things organized.

You should do some usability testing by asking someone to use DigiKam, who has never seen it before. And don't give him *any* hints.

Please do a big GUI cleanup before adding even more features.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
