Kid3 is a powerful audio tag editor for KDE, with support for popular formats like Ogg Vorbis, MP3, MP4, FLAC or WAV, features like multiple file tag editing (to edit fields which are the same for a batch of files), exporting to various online services, lyrics fetching, id3v1 and id3v2 MP3 tag editing, plugins, tag removal functionality, filters, next and previous buttons to quickly cycle through music files. I believe Kid3 to a gem for audiophiles who work often upon their music collection.

Most of the file managers included in distributions have an interface which usually provides a left panel and a main widget to display files and folders, and some even have an option to split the view left/right, like Nautilus in GNOME or Dolphin in KDE. But they don’t follow this view mode by default, and usually they can’t save this choice so it will be displayed like this the next time the application starts (there are exceptions – see Konqueror who will use profiles and will be able to save interface changes). On the other hand, there are the twin-panel based file managers like Krusader, Tux Commander or EmelFM2, from which GNOME Commander is also a part of, with the twin-panel mode enabled by default.

Although there are many image viewers for Linux, most of them are GTK-based and KDE is left behind with not so many options. Of course, there are applications like Krita or Kolourpaint, but these are image editors, not just simple viewers. Gwenview is the default image viewer in KDE, and it does its job very well. Not only it has enough features to accommodate the more demanding users (like ratings, file browser or thumbnail view), but its functionality can be extended using the KIPI plugins, a KDE set of image plugins used by applications like DigiKam as well, besides Gwenview.
