Select all the images in the lighttable, then X to enter the culling and X (again) to exit the culling mode and go back to the Lighttable.
To check for sharpness, I usually set the image count to just one
It’s possible to zoom and pan to compare in the images in the culling mode.
- The maximum number of images in the culling mode is 25 when in fixed zoom
- The maximum number of images in the culling mode is 4 when zooming and panning
The “Zooming” is done with “Ctrl-scroll the mouse wheel”
Darktable, by default, has a very simple and light view for browsing images.
Default Information in Lighttable
As you can see, it’s very sparse. There’s nothing to interfere with viewing the images, which is the base philosophy of Darktable.
The problem is that I don’t like it. I like to see what’s what. I have set the my own display of what I want to see. But to see it, you will need:
Press on the * at the top right of the lighttable
Select either overlay on mouse hover or permanent overlays
