This is primarily directed at those forumers that stubbornly refuse to
Read The Manual.
Background: Some time ago, I decided to switch to darktable,
to see what it could offer. Quite a lot, actually. And dt sure has
some very powerful evangelists as well as a bunch of skilled
tutorial writers presenting its benefits.
When RawTherapee 5.9 appeared, I wanted to catch up — and
I rapidly found out that I could develop an image faster using RT
than I could using dt.
I started to read Rawpedia, from the first paragraph to the last.
That was a time very well spent. Rawpedia contains a wealth of information
about RawTherapee — you just have to read, think and try
the built-in-tutorials for yourself. (Yes, you can even download the RAW files
used in the examples.)
Just to give a small hint on what you will find in Rawpedia:
Use Local Adjustments/Log encoding to do what dt’s filmic module does.
