Picasa 3: Great Linux photo software

"Underneath the hood, Picasa isn't a native Linux application. It's actually a Windows program running under Wine, an open-source version of the Windows API (application programming interface).

Picasa includes all the tools you'd expect from an easy-to-use photo editing program. These include cropping, red-eye editing, straighten images, and so on. It also makes all these functions easy to use, including the somewhat fancier ones such as adding tints or turning a color image into black and white or sepia.

It also has features that are somewhat unusual in photo programs. For example, rather than moving your photos to another, self-selected directory it keeps the images in the directory you choose. I can't count the number of times I've had to track down photos from where Adobe has decided to hide them or ended up creating duplicate images. With Picasa, that's not an issue."
