How I wrote in in this post I feel DT is missing a good way to manage external editors.
Some lua scripts are available for Gimp that can be adapted to other programs, but what I wanted was a way to manage multiple programs, even applied in sequence to the same image, not being forced to export the image at every step, creating a new TIF.
So I wrote this lua script, which at the moment is only tested on Windows and for sure need to be refined.
the scripts adds:
- a new target storage “collection”. Images exported will be reimported to collection for further edit with external programs
- a new lighttable module “external editors”, to select a program from a list of up to 9 external editors and run it on one selected image
- a set of lua preferences in order to configure name and path for up to 9 external editors
- a set of lua shortcuts in order to quick launch the external editors

Hope it can be useful, comments welcome.
