I’ve read through different threads, and even asked on Stack Exchange, but I’m still struggling with this. I have a Sony Alpha 6000, and when I import my photos into the lighttable, they look correct to me. However, when I open them in the darkroom, they do not.
Darktable recognizes my camera and lens, but lens correction is always turned off by default. I’d like to be able to apply this by default for photos taken with this camera. Also, I shoot in 16:9 and the crop is never applied by default. I’d like Darktable to apply whatever aspect ratio was set by the camera.
By default, Darktable applies sharpening, orientation and base curve, and the base curve automatically applies ‘Sony Alpha - like’. However, if I apply a style to a shot on my camera, like vivid colors, this will not show in the darkroom and I have to try and reproduce it there. The styles do render in fullscreen preview.
Once I’ve tweaked the photo in any way, I can no longer preview it as it was when it came off the phone. So, while I’m sure i’m asking a beginner question here, I need to know: how do I bring the imported settings into the darkroom?
Darktable obviously knows what the image is supposed to look like if it can generate a fullscreen preview. So I’m sure it must be able to produce this in the darkroom.
