  2. Hello,

    Didn´t know if my question is on the right place.
    I use darktable for one and a half year now and I´ve been very excited about the great project.

    I have suggestion, please make it possible to use the strg+z mode persistent. I talk about the mode in lighttable described on your website with: “ctrl-z fully zoom into the image and show areas in focus ”

    The function I would appreciate to see is
    – hit any key combination
    – have the zoom mode with shown focus areas persistent
    – navigate with arrows through the pictures (perhaps you could scroll through the pictures with the mouse wheel too)
    – use delete button to delete/move to trash the shown picture (perhaps you could map mouse wheel click to delete the shown picture)
    – optionally provide strg+z to undo the deletion/move to trash

    If the function works with the mouse support it would be very easy to sort the best picture out of a set of pictures.

    If darktable could provide these function it would speed up the workflow of many fotographers I think.


    • Hi Tobias, afaik that should already be possible. Check the preferences >> key combinations, and there under views >> lighttable there you find “short preview with focus detection” (normally mapped to CTRL + Z) and at the bottom “preview with focus detection” (normally not mapped).

  3. Thank you very much for all the work you are doing!
    So it seems like I’m getting a Sony A6000 + Darktable 2.0 for Christmas :)
    Thank your very much for all you are doing!

  4. Hi guys, many thanks for that effort and to give us an amazing darktable 2.0.

    I have a question. I run version 2.0-rc4 on my mac el capitan.
    I cannot export 32bit TIFF!
    Can you fix it?
    Best regards
