Welcome to the world of Digikam.
I have been running Digikam successfully for quite a while.

If you have a problem with Digikam, this list may be able to help you.
Have also a look at http://www.digikam.org/

you will have to invest some effort to unlock that power.

You should include some information about your system and specify the 

For example my system runs digikam Version 3.2.0, unter KDE 4.10.5 
"release 1", OS is opensuse 12.3.
It also runs under Windows, which I don't use for photo management
