Best Photo Software for linux


I am new to linux and making the transition with respects to software, etc. I am wondering about opinions regarding the best photo software for linux to download photos from my camera and organize them.... the emphasis on getting the photos from my camera to my computer.

Thanks

It all depends on what camera you have.

Gphoto is the program thats most widely used and supports the highest number of cameras. www.gphoto.com

If you have a kodak DX series like me then you should check out mmptp. Its a command line utility for getting the picture off your camera. http://www.michaelminn.com/linux/mmptp/README.html

Once you have the pictures off your camera you can touch them up and edit them in the G.I.M.P. www.gimp.org

gphoto and G.I.M.P. should come with most distros.

Thanks Mike,

The camera I have is a Olympus C3000-Z... I will check out the gphoto site to see if it is supported.
