Hi everyone. I’m new on this forum, but have been happily using darktable for the last year or so. I have a question which may need a little explanation first…
I mostly shoot Raw+JPG.
Now, I’ve discovered that I like the rating feature in darktable, it means I can run through a batch of images, handing out stars to the good ones, and quickly narrow down a batch of ‘decent’ photos. This works especially well well with a subject like motorsport, where I end up with loads of ‘ok’ images but only a few that really stand out (if I’m lucky!).
Here’s the rub: for this kind of photo I usually lean towards using the JPGs. And I don’t like to have the JPGs in darktable, it clutters things up having 2 of each image. Also, darktable is a bit slow on my old-ish PC (I run Windows 11).
It’s so much easier running through the JPGs in something like Windows Photo Gallery (or whatever it’s called).
But I want to be able to rate the images like in DT, AND it would be really good if those rating were applied to the Raws at the same time. So that when I head back to DT to process a few favorites they show up with the 3 or 4 star rating I gave to their JPG twins.
So, if anyone managed to read my rambling story (sorry) does an application exist that can rate Raw+JPG pairs in a darktable compatible way?
To summarize differently, I’d like to organize the Raws and JPGs in parallel as it were.
Edit: Sorry if this is a daft question… but I haven’t had a lot of success in trying to find out. Thanks😀
