I concur with gunvolt. The concern you have is normal, but trying to get non-native Linux programs to work on Linux can be a time suck, especially in the case of photo management software. There really is a bevy of alternatives already within the Linux community. It seems you're just not familiar yet of the names of the programs to choose from. A good software center might help.

If you're using a Ubuntu based Linux distro, I have found the Lubuntu Software Center to be good for new folks. It's fast, easy to use, and all of the software is free. Look to install that--the Lubuntu Software Center. There is an entire section of software packages related to Graphics in the Lubuntu Software Center.

If you're a technology wonk, and you're just curious of whether you can get a program to work in Linux, that's one thing, and I understand if that's you. But if you really just need a Linux alternative to something you're familiar with in Windows, give the Lubuntu Software Center a gander first.

You should install PlayOnLinux, which can run Windows apps without converting. There are plenty of Linux photo apps (Shutter, GIMP, Cheese)that work anyway.
