Another random Linux app. This time, I decided to focus on a graphics/productivity app. While many people keep complaining about Linux not being ready for the desktop, I always think they should be introduced to apps like digikam.
digikam is a fantastic digital photo management software for KDE. It allows you to download and organize your digital camera photographs in an easy-to-use, intuitive interface. With an easy to use, intuitive interface, it also displays a lot of useful information for each photograph, including photo properties, meta-data, colour information and also allows you to tag, store comments and ratings for every snap taken. The thumbnail album browsing feature is really convenient and allows you to easily organize multiple images without much effort.
I find it a really useful app, considering the increasing collection of photos taken from my Canon Powershot S50. As a desktop productivity app, I would definitely rate it highly.
