Linux Pro Magazine: "Using digiKam's Kipi plugins, you can upload your photos to a variety of popular photo services, including Flickr, Picasaweb, and SmugMug. But what if you want to host your own photo album and still be able to populate it with photos directly from within digiKam?"
Scribbles and Snaps: "Can't wait till the latest version of digiKam appears in the official Ubuntu software repositories? You don't have to: using the personal package archives (PPA) provided by the Launchpad service, you can install the latest release of digiKam with a few simple commands"
Linux Magazine: "digiKam is an immensely powerful photo application, so learning all its features requires time and effort. But this capable photo management application also offers a few easy to use features which you can use to instantly improve your shots."
Scribbles and Snaps: "Of course, renaming each and every photo by hand is not particularly practical, especially if you take dozens or even hundreds of photos each day. This is when digiKam's Rename feature can come in rather handy. You can use it to define rather advanced renaming rules and apply them to multiple photos in one fell swoop."
Scribbles and Snaps: "My photography workflow is based on two key tools: the digiKam photo management application and a Bubba Two personal Linux-based server. While I use digiKam for processing and managing photos, Bubba Two takes care of storing my image files and backs them up in the cloud. But that's only one of Bubba Two's many talents."
Sander's Photography blog: "Both digiKam and Aperture deliver excellent results if it comes to batch processing of your images. However, the look and feel of batch processing is entirely different between the two applications and as we will see, their implementation is also very different."
Looks like summer finally caught up with digiKam developers! This week the digest will be very short: ongoing work on refactoring color profiles code; libkdcraw updated to libraw-0.8.0-beta5 (support for RAW files bigger than 2GB); new features in Flickr export.
LinuxInsider: "When I first eyeballed the apps digiKam and Shotwell, I saw the former as being far more intricate and professional-looking. But first looks can be deceiving. Shotwell's features and advantages are initially less obvious."
