Chapter 16. Digital Photography > Picture-Perfect digiKam

Picture-Perfect digiKam

digiKam is a complete digital photo management system. Using digiKam, you can create collections and organize your photos (by date, type, and more) in easily searchable albums. Selecting and downloading images from your favorite digital camera is easy and fun. You can add comments to pictures, adjust light levels, fix the dreaded red-eye, collect and e-mail images, burn them to CD, or create a nifty instant calendar. With digiKam, you can do it all. digiKam is now distributed as part of KDE, with the latest and greatest always available at http://digikam.sourceforge.net.

To run digiKam (program name digikam), look for it in your Graphics menu, or use your <Alt+F2> quick launch. If this is your first time with digiKam, you'll be presented with a dialog asking for the location of the directory that will house your photo albums (Figure 16-2). By default, this is a directory called Pictures, directly under your home directory. You can, if you wish, specify an alternate path, but the default is usually fine for most people. Press OK to continue.
