Martin's Picture Viewer (Mapivi) is a cross-platform, open source picture manager and organizer. It is a standalone tool and does not use a separate web server, online access or a database.

This application copes admirably with EXIF data (like timestamp, camera model, focal length, exposure time, aperture, etc.), and can rename pictures according to their internal date/time, to display and modify JPEG comments and do lossless rotation.

The idea of using Mapivi as an picture organizer is to keep user, EXIF, and IPTC information where it belongs -- in the pictures -- as well in a searchable Mapivi database. The support for IPTC is particularly impressive.

Mapivi can also perform image processing. Mapivi serves as a graphical frontend for many proven command line tools, such as the Image Magick tools.
