I am not a professional photographer so I do not know the proper terms for many things, I apology myself for this. I will pose my question with an example.

I have a set of pictures in digiKam:

enter image description here

They were all taken at the same place and time, so they all look very similar. Now I want to apply some color-brightness-etc. corrections to these photos, so I right click one and click open, the Image editor opens and I can do whatever I want. For example this:

enter image description here

Now I want to apply the exact same process I made within the Image editor to all the pictures. I have found that using the Batch queue manager this can be done:

enter image description here

In this case, however, there is not any preview of what each operation is going to do, so I have to proceed blinded. Not an option for me.

Of course one possibility is to open the Batch queue manager and the Image editor simultaneously and to manually replicate each operation I perform for one picture in the Image editor into the Batch queue manager.

enter image description here

This is better than manually editing each picture, but is still a bit cumbersome and does not look like the way to go.

I have tried to copy the filters in the Used filters tabe (see second screenshot) but it is not allowed.

So, what is the proper way to do this?

  • \$\begingroup\$ WHat about copy settings and then paste them on each image? \$\endgroup\$ Feb 6, 2022 at 12:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ How can I do that? I have tried to copy the settings from the Filters used tab but it is not allowed. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Image » Metadata » Export EXIF, click on next image, Image » Metadata » Import EXIF may do the work \$\endgroup\$ Feb 6, 2022 at 12:27
  • \$\begingroup\$ I cannot find that, I am using digiKam version 7.2.0. I can go to Image → Metadata → EXIF but cannot export/import that. \$\endgroup\$
