Being fairly new to darktable, I have a question regarding backing up my images.
- After I’m done with a shoot, I put those images on my hard drive and copy to a passport backup as well.
- I then import all of those images into darktable from my hard drive to work on.
- Now, if I’m editing an image, and then stop working on it for a day or two, does the original raw image contain my edits or the side car file that darktable creates? I assume if something goes wrong with my hard drive, and I have copied both the raw and side car file to my passport, when I go to work on that file again, my edits would be contained in one of those 2 files. Either raw or side car.
Maybe I’m wrong altogether in how I save and back up. Any help would be appreciated.
