digiKam 5.8 Open-Source Image Manipulator Adds UPnP/DLNA Export, Improvements

Coming four months after the previous release, digiKam 5.8.0 is here with another set of enhancements for fans of the application. For starters, the new version introduces a new tool that allows users to export their image collections to UPnP/DLNA-compatible devices. It can be accessed in all of digiKam’s views through the Tools menu. The new UPnP/DLNA export tool can also be viewed in Showfoto, and since both the UPnP and DLNA protocols are standardized, there’s no need for the digiKam team to create dedicated apps for each client device that wants access to your digiKam or Showfoto collections. Users can find many DLNA apps in the Android and iOS digital stores.
