Lightroom is the last Windows software I use. The Linux alternative is the combo Digikam+Darktable.
But I cannot understand the Digikam logic.
- When I delete a raw file, I’m expecting to see the associated jpeg removed too. That’s not the case.
- About face recognition, Digikam analyses the jpeg and the raw. So it does twice the job. If a face is recognized on the jpeg, I expect to have the same information on the raw. If I update the name of the person on the jpeg, I want to see the modification on the raw.
- Why two xmp files, one for the jpg, one for the raw? There is no way to share information between them?
- I shoot in raw+jpeg, filter by file type is the only way to hide the duplicate images?
- file.xmp is read, but new information is stored within file.jpeg.xmp or file.raw.jpg. Can we change this?
So any way to fix these 4 bullets? They are the last thing before I can say definitively good bye to Microsoft and Adobe.
