-- ABOUT -------------------------------------------------------------
digiKam is an easy to use and powerful digital photo management
application, which makes importing, organizing and manipulating
digital photos a "snap". An easy to use interface is provided
to connect to your digital camera, preview the images and download
and/or delete them.
The digiKam built-in image editor makes the common photo correction
a simple task. The image editor is extensible via plugins and,
since the digikamimageplugins project has been merged to digiKam core
since release 0.9.2, all useful image editor plugins are available
in the base installation.
digiKam can also make use of the KIPI image handling plugins to
extend its capabilities even further for photo manipulations,
import and export, etc. The kipi-plugins package contains many
very useful extentions.
digiKam is based in part on the work of the Independent JPEG Group.
