Pascal recorded some new screencasts using the latest stable version of darktable, 1.0.4.
The first is (one can start speaking of “as usual”) dedicated to the changes and new features of darktable 1.0, giving an overview over improvements, new UI elements and workflow changes.
The second one is a bit more general. Pascal elaborates on raw file archiving and backups, about the pros and cons of DNG and Vendor formats and whether you want to embed your metadata or not.
Find them either on our resource page or on Pascal’s website.
Enjoy watching them, thanks to Pascal!
1) You're buying the wrong CD/DVDs. They're expensive, but buy the Fuji Archivals, get the Gold ones, if you can. These are Archives rated to last decades. A burnable CD/DVD begins to degrade after about 5 years.
2) I use old IDE hard drives as a back-up. I load an entire quarter, half-year, and year onto a single drive that is then disconnected from my computer and stored in a locked file cabinet. It's my third back-up, as I also keep my files on my computer and they get backed up to an external harddrive once a week.
