When I started covering digiKam on my Scribbles and Snaps
blog, I did it mostly to document features I personally found useful for my photographic needs. Surprisingly, the blog articles turned out to be rather popular with other digiKam users, so I kept covering digiKam's nifty features as I discovered them. At some point, I realized that the blog contained enough material for an ebook that you can keep handy when working with digiKam. And since the Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing platform solution makes it ridiculously easy to publish an ebook and make it available through Amazon, the decision to turn the blog material into an ebook form was a no-brainer.
Since it's relatively easy to update a digital publication, I expect the book to evolve and mature to the point where it becomes the definitive digiKam manual. And if you decide to purchase the current version of the book will receive all subsequent editions free of charge.
The book wouldn't have been possible without the fantastic digiKam software and its amazing developers. Therefore, 50% of all book sales go to the digiKam project. The book doesn't use any DRM, and it's released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International license, so you can read the book using any ebook reader that supports the MOBI format. Also, you are free to share the book and modify it as long as you share your modifications.
