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.

Lightroom vs Digikam + Rawtherapee

Lightroom is 'better', costs >$100.
Digikam + Rawtherapee is 'good', for free.

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.

Handy bash queue to auto adjust multiple raw photos can convert to jpeg.
