Over the past few years, I have been using many image management applications. Theseapplications include Google Picasa, digiKam, Shotwell, F-spot and many more. Up until a fewmonths back my favorite image management application was Google Picasa. Even though Iwas also using digiKam at that time, I never delved much into it. When Picasa releasedversion number 3.5 they dropped support for the Linux platform, and The only option I wasleft with was Wine I never liked the idea of running applications under Wine. I only do it whenthere is no alternative. This was my turning point. Instead of Picasa I discovered a perfectalternative that has a lot more features than Picasa. So here is my user guide and tutorialsabout DigiKam. I have arranged the tutorials in the same order as I have published them onmy blog.
