If you choose to use Digikam, first-time use setup goes as follows:
1. You're invited to specify a directory within your /home directory where the Digikam library of photos will be stored. The default choice of Pictures is fine, so click OK.
2. If you're using a digital camera, you need to add your camera's hardware profile. Click Camera > Add Camera. In the Configure dialog box, click the Auto-Detect button. This should automatically add your camera to the list of known cameras, so click the OK button.
3. To import photographs, select your camera from the Camera menu.
Following this initial setup, whenever you attach the camera and opt to import the photos into Digikam, the pictures should automatically appear in the Digikam preview window. You can select the pictures you want to import and click the Download button.
