Quality stable app from the powers of open-source. Much better at file handling and organizing than Adobe Lightroom + plus lightweight. Yet digiKam has all the same tools to process photos than LR. With digiKam the learning curve is small either if your new to photo process or not.

There are just too many things that don't work in the Windows version. I'm using the most recent version 6.0.0 and many dialogs/fields just don't do anything when you click them. (Yes, even in the metadata editor.) Even things that did work in the Beta do not work now.

They claim that it handles Audio and Video files. What they really mean is that it will show a thumbnail and play them. You can't edit any of the metadata for these file types other than internal digiKam things like tags. But it won't write those tags out to either the file's metadata or an external .XMP file. So the work you do in digiKam is only available in digiKam, and if its database gets corrupted, you are screwed.

Pretty good both in usability and interface. It has the same UI features and organisation ways that you can see in other very popular open source software (Blender, Krita, and so on...), many options in making your personal workflow and layout, pretty good performance and some extra sweets for those who is interesting in advance organisation features (face search, similar images and even more). I think you certainly should give this program a chance and make your very own opinion because UI is kinda unusual for a newcomers that never used Open Source software.

The tagging and search functions are easy to use and yet very powerful. It works well with albums stored on network drives. So far it's been very stable and responsive for me on Windows. There are a lot of features I haven't tried yet. The built in video player isn't the best, but you can have it open videos in a different player app.

Unfortunately, the windows version is not reliable at a very fundamental level. This software will scan your images, let you spend hours tagging and burning cpu to use the facial recognition feature, then the database will corrupt. It has happened twice so far, and I'm not willing to attempt the journey again. They need to stop letting google summer of code students write this software, like, yesterday.

Won't even show any of my photos despite scanning the directories multiple times.
