Photography software for Linux
Now we will be discussing about more advance image editing on Linux.
The standard image management software on Linux machine is F-soft (a play in the word f- stop) it is the default photo management software for the Gnome desktop. For KDE the default photo management software is Dig cam, Tagging, Categorization, color codes and making folder and management of large collections of photos is prime work for F-Spot. Tagging feature has much variation. Apply top from across different categories use filters across multiple tags. Rate individual and multiple photos. Filter by both tags and ratings you can search and extract the EXIF data embedded in an image.
With F-soft you able to do some basic image editing activities like color correction, red-eye removal, cropping. You can upload images to Picasa and Flicker directly from the programme you can burn a photo CD for playback on a CD/DVD. F-soft creates static HTML photo galleries if you want to upload to your home page.
Both Linux photography software F-soft and dig cam works well. They recognize your cameras and import picture and video cameras with Wine (Linux) comfortable player, Picasa can be made to work with Linux. I will suggest you to download Windows version of Picasa and make it compatible with Picasa through Wine (Linux) compatible comfortable layer.
Now we will be discussing about more advance image editing on Linux. GIMP, advance editing on Linux supports plug-in, layers, masks and many more and many of the feature that Photoshop has. The difficult is gimp feature are not as rich and good as Photoshop, however, can deliver most practical needs. There is a version of GIMP called the GIMP shop which makes GIMP to look like a Photoshop.
This is great for Windows Photoshop users who are migrating from Windows to Linux.
