digikam(1) digital photo management application for KDE


digikam [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [--detect-camera]


Digikam is an easy to use and powerful digital photo management application, which makes importing, organizing and editing digital photos a "snap". An easy to use interface is provided to connect to your digital camera, preview the images and download and/or delete them.

Digikams buildin image editor makes the common photo correction a simple task. The image editor is extensible via plugins. The digikam package contains already many useful image editor plugins.

Digikam can also make use of the KIPI image handling plugins to extend it's capabilities even further for photo manipulations, im- and export, etc. The kipi-plugins package contains many very useful extentions.


Automatically detect and open picture download dialog. Note: autodetection does not work with cameras that claim to be USB mass storage devices.
--download-from <path>
