I just spent a bunch of time processing a raw file in RT. I then finished it up in GIMP.
Afterwards, I went to look at the raw file again in RT, and it opened with none of my edits included. Worse, it overwrote the sidecar file so if I ever want to go back and work on this, I will have to start from scratch. How do I avoid doing this again in the future?
I typically save RT’s edits as TIFs, then open in Gimp. I don’t have it set to save the sidecars along with the TIFs. I thought the sidecar next to the raw file would be enough.
Is there a difference if I right click the raw file, then say, “Open with RT” versus if I select it from RT’s file browser?
