Addendum: with joy I have noted that the links I gave above are popular.
Unfortunately, weeklyedit.com seems depressed (= down) these days. ping @harry_durgin

However, you will be able to find many of Harry’s tutorials here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LufwQZx01gk

Have fun!

Don’t use the basecurve tool. Create a camera profile instead! A tutorial for that will be available on pixls.us soon.

Is “camera profile” already implemented in DT? Basecurve has preset “Panasonic like” but I guess it was created for particular model and when I apply it to my GX7 photos first thing I notice is that photos need circa +0,3EV exposure as they are dark. If I can make such a profile for GX7 please let me know, I’ll try to create one and send it to developers.
edit: in links above there is video by @harry_durgin with tutorial how to create “basic curve” profiles for each ISO setting. Unfortunately, it’s done on linux so I can only provide samples to create profiles.
