Can't see digikam here. It's for overall refinement of photos taken with a DSLR, but one can do RAW editing, face recognition, stitching and various other stuff with it. I think it would fit in here.

I use GIMP, at least partly because it recognises my Canon scanner. 8)

Irfanview! Irfanview! Irfanview! Irfanview!

With wine it runs great. Better than the linux offerings and it's free! Need to view PDFs and FAXs? Need to crop and rotate, flip orizantal/vertical images? Need to adjust brightness, contrasts, gamma, RBG corrections. Icrease/decrease color depth. Auto adjust colors? resize images? want to veiw videos? Play musice or other audio files? Convert images from DICOM to JPG, RAW, TIFF or any other format. Paint. Sharpen, red eye reduction? view image properties, EXIF and IPTC info? Add text. Batch image renaming and converting, slide show, batch scanning? Copier? Need OCR? Screen print manipulations. Photo management.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I can hear you now, "You can use Gimp for....." Maybe if you really need some real professional technical work and have the time to figure it out, sure. I have Gimp installed and have never used it. I've got Photo Shop and never used it either. I do a lot of image editing but I really don't need them. For most people, 99% of the time, those are like driving a dump truck down to the corner store for a slurpee. Hey, I've needed dump trucks but I don't have one parked in the drive way.

For all round image viewing and editing and converting it's hard to beat and I have tried most of those other ones listed. They are just not as well rounded or capable.

I don't have a computer with out it. If you don't generally aggree then you haven't used it. PERIOD.

Well said. That's what i was going to suggest. I know we can't have too many catagories, but a distinction should be made between raster (bitmap) and vector graphics editors. And those that do both could be in both catagories.

The GIMP, I guess, I don't know.

It's not the friendliest app out there but every time I need to do something graphics-related, it works very well for me.

Agreed, not for the timid but you can't beat it for options/functionality, not surprised it won by a landslide.

Been using Gimp since the early days and find it does most of the things I used to do in Photoshop pretty well. That said, the new method of setting brush sizes etc that they introduced a while back is terrible. I also used to love being able to save in a different format by changing the extension - really useful - the new behaviour is a total pain.

That said, I still use it extensively.

Yeah Gimp 2.8 sucked. Between the new tool box and brush controls and the export instead of save junk.

And the GIMP team is completely closed to suggestions on it. Especially Alexandre Prokoudine

Basically the mentality is "that's the way it is and screw the users who dislike it"

Have you looked at Darktable?

http://www.darktable.org/

Or is your issue with Nikon using proprietary connection and not being usb compat/recognizable?

And this attitude from the Gnome camp surprises you? Hell, look how far Gnome3 has fallen? Do they give a damn about users? Indeed, maintaing "brand recognition" for poptential enterprise desktop customers (the holy grail that never seems to materialize) of their corporates sponsors is all that matters to them these days. Total sell out and perversion of what made FOSS so successful in the first place. But, hey, you gots to drink the corp sponsored Kool-Aide because its no longer about the passion, pursuit of technical excellence, etc. It's about the funding. Cutting to the chase, Gnome has decended into whoredom, taking direction from the highest bidders.
