I’m testing Darktable 2.7, and I really like it. One of my favorite features is the Basic adjustments tool: it groups the most useful adjustment sliders in one tool. Before I had to open several tools/tabs to be able to do these adjustments.
Here are some ideas for this tool:
The sliders in this tool are duplicates of other sliders. Is it possible to link them together? e.g. the exposure slider should have the same value than the exposure slider from the Exposure tool. So by moving this slider, the exposure tool should activate and the slider in the Exposure tool move too. To sum up, this tool would affect the UI, without making proper processing.
I would add to the Basic adjustments tool the following sliders:
- White balance (combo box with predefined values and an eyedropper tool for white point selection)
- Sharpening/local contrast
- Noise reduction
Eventually make this tool configurable (select which sliders to display).
What do you think?
