7 of the Best Free Linux Photo Management Software

7 of the Best Free Linux Photo Management Software

Photo management software is a type of computer application that helps users to organize their digital image collection.

One of the biggest culprits of a cluttered hard disk are images taken with a digital camera. This device enable users to take literally hundreds or even thousands of photos storing them on a single small memory device. The photos are then transferred to a computer hard disk for sharing with family and friends, editing, and to print to a photo printer or one of the many online digital photo printing services.

Anyone with a large photo collection will know that cataloging and finding a specific picture can be very time consuming. The purpose of this article is to identify Linux software that helps manage your collection by using a number of different techniques including tagging and albums. Good software makes the task of deciding which photos to keep and which to delete less time consuming.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 7 of the most useful free photo management tools. Hopefully, there will be something of interest here for anyone who wants to organize their photos. Please note that whilst Picasa is a free download, it is released under a proprietary license and needs Wine to run.

Now, let's explore the 7 photo management tools at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
