Sort Images in light table view by DT Tags


I would like to have DarkTable sort by an arbitrary tag (in my case “Shot” which is the ShotList information for the picture) in the light table view…

I think that an easy way to implement it for everybody would be to support a custom sort string using the variables that DT already supports.

I would set it up just like the export string when you export a picture.

I don’t mind doing the implementation, I just want to know that its likely to be accepted and that it doesn’t already exist.

But how does that let me sort the images inside the Light Table View?

For me, that lets me filter by the tags, but I want to change the order of the images based on the values in a tag.

I’m using this version: 4.5.0+1215~g09d4d3c69d

I misunderstood what you asked for. I still don’t understand what you are trying to archive.

Welcome to the forum. I too am confused what you are proposing here?

Something like this is what you are talking about … "shotlist" Auto-Generate an excel list with thumbnails!

Yeah, something along those lines.

There are already a number of ways to sort images, as described in the manual.

otoh, from your description, I get the impression you want to sort on a keyword tag. That’s not possible, as those don’t have values…

So I don’t understand what you want to achieve.
