Just a premise; I run a Mac, I don’t know anything about lines, strings and programming, and even almost nothing regarding terminal use. I come from LR.
But I really love darktable!!!
And I am ready to make the final switch, but first I need to solve a few doubts regarding workflow. Hope you can help out.
The library with time gets bigger and bigger; now, how can I move the .config folder (or even just the DT library alone) to another external drive and then launch DT which is installed on my machine?
If I want to move and image - or a folder - from one location to another, I do it outside DT, making sure I also move the .xmp file. Then I import again the same folder, to have all the new images displayed and imported. Is this procedure the optimal?
I guess there is no such tool yet as “synchronise folder”, so that the program simply reads the new images within a given folder, as in LR.
From reading here and there, I understood that there is still no way to create new libraries: correct?
So I assume you all work with just 1 file_library, no? Where do you store such file, when big? And here I go back to my point 1)
With LR I used to create a catalogue for each year, and I would like to maintain the same workflow’s structure.
If I manage to overcome these issues I can finally say I moved - for good - from LR to DT.
Many thanks in advance!
