New features:

    Most welcome, as always. Thanks for all your effort. How do the scripts work? Are they invoked seperately or configured from within darktable?

    Cheers, Gregor
  2. Many thanks for this golden piece of software ! My only tool for my RAWs on my multiple digital bodies. Congratulations
  3. I guess the noise profile for the Lge Nexus 5X should be the same for the Huawei Nexus 6P as both are using the same chip?
  4. Thank you for the hard and competent work.
