styles

Create named styles from selected images' history stacks and apply styles to selected images.

Styles can either be created within this panel or in the history stack module in the darkroom.

A list of all available styles is displayed at the top of the module. A search field above the list allows you to locate a style by name or description. This module also allows styles to be edited and deleted.

Double-click on a style name to apply that style to all selected images. A style may also be applied to all selected images by pressing a shortcut key assigned to it (see preferences > shortcuts) while in either lighttable or darkroom view.

🔗module controls

create duplicate
When applying a style to images, tick this box to create a duplicate of each image before applying the chosen style to that duplicate. Disable this option to apply the chosen style directly to the selected images. Beware that in this case any existing history stack is overwritten (depending on the mode – see below) and cannot be recovered.
mode
As with the history stack module, this combobox allows you to either “append” the style to the current history stack or to “overwrite” the history stack of the target image.
create
Create new style(s) using the history stack of the selected image(s). For each selected image a style creation window is shown. You must supply a unique name for each new style and you can also add an optional description. You will be given the option to de-select any history stack items that you don’t want to be part of the created style.

The panel supports a hierarchical view, meaning that you can create categories using the pipe symbol “|” as a separator. For example “print|tone curve +0.5 EV” will create a “print” category with a style of “tone curve +0.5 EV” below it.

edit
Select “edit” to bring up a dialog which allows you to include or exclude specific items from the stack of an existing style. Check the “duplicate” option if you want to create a new style, instead of overwriting the existing one. In this case you will need to provide a unique name for the new style.
remove
Delete the selected style, without any further prompt.
import
Import a previously saved style. Styles are stored as XML files with the extension .dtstyle.
export
Save the selected style to disk as a .dtstyle file. This allows styles to be published and shared with other users.
