A photo management application complete with an editor module
Pros & Cons:
digiKam is called a "photo management application" and is more like a photo organizer. The editing options are advanced but it could also be classed as a suite. In the end I classified it under the Advanced Editor because it has many advanced editing features: Raw processing, support for more than 1,200 digital camera models, editing Exif and other meta-data, sharing images on social media, has a Light Table for comparing similar images, and provides batch processing. It also has an editor module called ShowFoto.
Warning: Like GIMP, digiKam is a stable Linux application first and a less stable Windows version second. I did not have any problems in Windows 8.1 so it has become much more stable than when I last used it. If you decide to use it then test it well to confirm it is stable on your system before committing to it.
The manual/handbook and the online tutorials are very good which will help to reduce the learning curve.
