Digikam - Light table

Jan 08, 2010, 18:03 (0 Talkback[s])

"I consider myself a pre-amateur photographer and that means I'm taking a lot of shots just to learn how the camera works. I own a Canon EOS 1000D and have recently moved from the fully automatic exposure modes to the advanced exposure modes, and to be more specific, the programmed auto exposure mode.

"So, I needed an application that could load a couple of pictures, showing two pictures side-by-side for visual comparison and at the same time presenting the more important meta-data attributes such as focal length, exposure time, ISO and aperture. I considered doing such application myself and that's why I came across and started to explore gphoto. But luckily, I managed to stop myself and took yet another look at what Digikam offers. I'm a die-hard KDE-fan and have been using digikam, which is a KDE photo manager application, for quite some time to organize my photos but never actually used any other features except removing red-eyes."
