I’ve taken the leap and shifted from Lightroom to darktable I used nested collections in lightroom to keep everything organised, now I have to use tags for the same. I think hierarchical tags in darktable will be much more powerful.
Is there any tutorial or video out there about hierarchical tagging? I haven’t yet figured out what categories I should use, how many sub-levels would be too many…Also, half my images have people tagged through the face recognition in LR. How can I re-use these tags in my new hierarchical structure in darktable?
To start with the top level categories, I am thinking of following a childhood game called “Name, Place, Animal, Thing”. These 4 should cover all the photos imo. Maybe I’ll add a category for “Activity”.
Can anyone share their tagging workflow, and any other tips please?
