I tried it and it was so SLOW !!
it was scanning through a 1.5T hard disk, cause I marked it where keep my images, which was really the case. Not only was it scanning a huge HDD at every start, but when wanting to open a directory with some 200 images or less in it, it would do NOTHING. Show nothing. It would be, instead, listing files again.
Every directory I wanted to take a look in, would initiate a new scanning. Practically: I wanted to see pictures in directories and I didn't see ONE. Quite a disappointment. I like Canon's DPP. And Darktable. I hoped that Digikam would be a cool and fast thing. I simply cannot use it... sorry...
I can see that many people can :) I don't know what I do differently... but I do know I I work with images normally, and I'd like to keep to that workflow.. which is:
- open a directory of pix,
- go over them, watch each of them at a relatively large size,
- mark them if you like them (stars) or select them (numbers),
- and do image editing, brightness, contrast, gamma, hue - in a nondestructive manner...
(if score "1" would NOT be dubbed as "I hate it", I would have chosen that... but of course I do NOT hate it! I am only sorry
Le plus complet et performant !
The best photo editor
Me encantaba, pero que lástima que las últimas versiones me han dado muchos problemas. No me funciona en Mint 18.
As some users said, if you want Digikam to work you must also install this packages: apt install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins If you want to see icons and some missing buttons: apt install kdeartwork And to have readable tooltips (cause foreground and background colors can make them unreadable): apt install systemsettings kdebase-runtime Then start systemsettings and change tooltip text color in "Application Appearance > Colors (in left list) > Colors (the tab) > Tooltip text".
not a fan of the odd user interface, which compels the user to create and configure "libraries," or whatever. Where is the app that will simply navigate to a directory, display the images, and allow basic edits?
This simply does not work. Hangs immediately when trying to add a collection. Photo software that does not support photos? Funny.
Very little is anything has change since the last try 8 months ago. Still deadly slow on moderately high end machine. But most won't have 1.5tb of stock to catalog.
On Mint17 Cinnamon you must install these as well: sudo apt-get install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins (as the other user said below), missing dependency... :(
Crash after every Start. :(
runs also on Cinnamon, btw , best ever. But for people with less knowledge/interest in photography, it might be too much
This is the best asset management app for linux, from keywording to resizing and watermarking, this app does an excellent job. It's editing functions are so so at best though.
chrashes all when starts up (linux mint 17)
See comment below regarding Mint 17.1 and the programme crashing. Great programme but not all Export Plugins work. Facebook will not be found although shown as installed. are sho
For those having an issue on mint 17.1 with the app crashing after scanning the library: sudo apt-get install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins. Install the oxygen theme for icons too.
Seems great at first use. However, steep learning curve, just for the program, not to mention features.
Workes great in Petra KDE. One of the best of its kind, any platform. You can add tags, ratings, exif (great feature for old scans!). Editor is ok for simple tasks. As a true KDE app can be customized to your needs and habbits. Search no more, just use it :)
Excellent photo management program!
