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.

 Image Editor

Is it possible to use the Imageeditor as a standalone app? It's a very nice and quick viewer and editor, a program I missed in KDE HEAVILY.

Viewers like Gwenview can't manipulate Images, and XnView looks very bad + can't import from the clipboard. Gimp is to heavy for some fileactions like sharpen, sizechange or colormanipulation.

On the subject of the image editor - is there any chance to get elliptical selections? With the red-eye removal, it'd be nice to be able to select just the round part.

Great app anyway, so many useful features!

 Builds but doesn't

I just "built" digikam 0.8.1 but when I install there's nothing. I know I'm doing everything correctly but there's no binary. Is there something wrong with the source code or is there something special that needs to be done to build it now?

 Still doesn't Build

On my Debian 3.1 system. 0.8.1 compiles in what seems like seconds compared to 0.8.0's 10 mins. The end result is no digikam and an empty deb package.

I'm using the standard ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && su -c "make install"

Can you shed any light on why it might be failing?

 KimDaBa to digiKam?

 by robertg on: Apr 25 2006

A really, really great tool! And I'm almost ready to switch from KimDaBa, I chose for management of my pictures at the time there was no alternative. And I gathered some 3000+ images and I attached to them some categories and descriptive infos.
Does anyone have an idea how to transfer all those things besides pictures?

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.
