I think that digiKam is probably the best software package for photo organization. However, the ability to include photos that are NOT on the local hard drive (e.g. on CDs and DVDs or other computers) is the one most desirable feature lacking.

In KPhotoAlbum, you can include such photos in your database very easily:

Copy the photos from the CD/DVD to the directory where you have your KPhotoAlbum.
Rescan the photos, an tag all the new ones you are adding.
Delete the photos you have copied from the CD/DVD

Now, in your Thumbnails view, all of those photos still appear. All the attributes are there as well. The only difference in the Thumbnails is that the upper right hand corner is clipped off to indicate that the photo is not on disk.

If this feature were to be added to digiKam, I think it would be the perfect solution for my photo organizing needs.  

I really don't want to have to run two programs, but digiKam does not have this feature, and I have found too many other difficulties with KPhotoAlbum to use it exclusively.
