As Stephen Leibowitz
suggested earlier in the thread, the program did see some really positive updates. I retested recently and the crashing discussed previously seems to have mostly been worked out. Also, this program did *finally* add a functionality I've been looking for: you can select multiple thumbnails and modify just those items for size, color, conversion, filters, etc. Wonderful news.
Unfortunately it's not portable ...
: download and unzip, overwriting when prompted, launch digikam.exe
: Not portable
, writes to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\digikamrc
. Also writes to \AppData\Local\kxmlgui5\digikam\
I was also unable to determine how to get the photos database to work within the local folder.
: Still huge; the download is 275 megs, install is 1.3 gigs, RAM was 313 megs on my Win10x64 system. Again, this is a feature monster so at least this is one program who's size is comiserate to the features, but it's probably unwise to have it running in the background all the time.
Comparison to other programs here on the site
: Like PhotoDemon
, the program is primarily targeted to photographers and not for standard image addendums for screenshots, such as arrows, text, boxes, etc. Probably PhotoScape
is the best program to play in both camps.
