DigiKam works under Gnome. When you install it, the parts of KDE that
are needed are automagically installed by apt.
Also, look at Google's Picasa. It will give you some wriggle room in
dealing with sharing photos with family and friends who don't do Linux.
gThumb is the Gnome image viewer. It is less grand than DigiKam but
sometimes that is good.
I have all three running on my computer. I don't use anyway near all
the features of any one of them. They seem to all work together. YMMV
