Would someone recommend a free photo organizer application for Windows that is simple to use and will auto import pictures from a digital camera? I know of DigiKam and Picasa. Does Picasa allow local manipulation or does it shove Google down your throat, forcing account creation/sign-in? I attempted to go to DigiKam's site, but it keeps timing out.
This is for a client's PC. They aren't tech-savvy and often hose their machine by clicking yes to everything that pops up on the net. They recently Eff'd up their PC by downloading some photo management software that came with a bazillion garbage programs and a rootkit for good measure. ###### me off too, cause I just installed it for them a few weeks ago. I imaged the damn thing this time.

Valid point about the integration of other services.. But collage is part of picasa and quick look blows photo galleries collage options away with choices of what to do, how many photos to include, etc etc... As to calling it more powerful - that really depends on what your looking to accomplish. If the feature set it not there that is needed, then its not more powerful If I wanted to do collages with the pictures -- sorry it would be hands down picasa as winner for example. Now if wanted to do fusing or panoramic - then yeah gallery hands down better choice to be sure.
They are both free - and can use the same folders.. Install them both and use the one that best suites what your doing, etc. If after a while you find not using the other, then just delete it.Go to the full post
