Supported Plugins

One of the nicest things about digiKam is how easily its functionality can be extended, by using plugins:

  • Kipi Plugins: the Kde Image Plugins Interface project (Kipi) (manual) is an effort to develop a common plugin structure for digiKam, KPhotoAlbum, Showimg and Gwenview. Its aim is to share image plugins among graphical applications. Kipi-Plugins setup is described in this section.

The digiKam plugins interface

Plugins can manipulate images in almost any way that users can. Their advantage is, that it is much easier to add a capability to digiKam by writing a small plugin than by modifying the digiKam core.
