I’m a Darktable user, but I often look longingly over to RawTherapee, for a variety of reasons. There truly is a lot to love about both these programs!
But then I play around with RawTherapee, and get annoyed that the effect of some modules are only visible at 1:1 magnification. In my inexperienced ways, this can make it very hard to judge whether an edit was successful or not.
Obviously this doesn’t stop current RawTherapee users. So, how do you deal with it? Do you switch back and forth every so often? Did you learn to visualize the effects in your mind? Am I fundamentally misunderstanding what the 1:1 means?
