Creating new catalogue/library?


(Matteo Bertolino) #1

Hi there.

As far as the overall darktable back-up is concerned, what I do (please correct if I am wrong) is: I copy and paste to a new location the entire folder .config, and every now and then sync the two to have them equal.
Now, in LR you can create different catalogues/libraries, for instance one per year. Could we do that on darktable as well? How to create a fresh new library?
Please take into account I’m running on a Mac.
Thanks in advance.
M.

If you start darktable from the command line, you can specify a different library file, e.g. darktable --library /home/you/.config/darktable/new.db. See https://www.mankier.com/1/darktable
