I thought I could share my workflow with you, although it is very similar to what we all do.
Distro: Manjaro KDE Plasma
Photo Management: Digikam
Raw Editor: Darktable
Graphics (like Flyer, etc): Inkscape
I found out (for me personally) that Digikam is the only software that can do the following:
I need and want to sort my photos (ca. 100.000) like year, month, etc… And I rename them… This kind of management I cannot do in darktable. So I need a “photo management software”.
But I do a lot of raw editing in darktable. And DT creates xml-files for every photo. So, when I move files, rename them after having edited them, I needed a program that would recognize whenever I move or rename a RAW-file and then automatically renames the XML file accordingly.
And Digikam does exactly this. As the only program I know of…
Jepp, thats my Raw-Editing-workflow
