No mention of support for "raw" formats? Which applications can display images from raw (NEF, CRW, etc) files? Not the cheesy low-res embedded thumbnails, but the high-resolution images themselves.
I shoot NEF files. There's a patch for gqview that lets you view NEF. And Photo Organizer, which is what I currently use for management, can handle them via dcraw. But which other image management programs handle raw? Any that can't would be useless to me.
Another important feature, one that PO provides, is the ability to keep multiple versions of a photo -- different crops, for example.
Maybe at some point it would be good to review what's available for more substantive work. Actually, a review of digital photography workflow options under Linux would be good, albeit perhaps too large in scope for LWN.
