Linux Image, Design & Photographs

Organize and download images from digital cameras


Supports the majority of formats

Organize photo collections by date or tags



Some options require additional configuration

digiKam is the perfect tool for organizing photos taken on your digital camera. The program is ideal for making instant changes and previewing each image, while editing those you wish to edit (removing redeye, contrast the color balance, applying filters, and so on). These changes can be applied to different groups of images at the same time.

With digiKam you can export the images as different formats, and upload them to various social networks and online sites. There are also extra options such as the ability to create calendars, although some of these processes can take a bit of extra time to get used to and master.

Even though the program has been designed for Linux, it can also be used on Windows and Mac. Without a doubt, the most versatile feature of digiKam is its ability to classify, which can be found via the filter tool. You can select photos according to tag (EXIF, IPTC, XMP), type, location, label, people, text...anything you can think of.

digiKam is a must-have for any Linux user. It has a professional interface, it’s comprehensive, and it is by far one of the best photo managers on the market.
