I have RAW+JPEG photos in Darktable. I have given some star rating to JPEG photos and filtered the lighttable view using the stars. While I have selected one of those JPEG images, can I quickly switch to its RAW counterpart?
Currently, I have to remember the image name, switch the view to ≥ 1 star and find it manually.
Darktable 2.4 groups each RAW+JPEG pair but I haven’t found any way to utilize the groups for switching images inside.
Why do I want this? Well, it’s a long story: I switched from iPhoto to Darktable while taking most images with Canon 50D. I appreciated the extended editing capabilities for RAW photos but when I export untouched RAW image from Darktable, I usually get a much worse result than what I was used to with iPhoto. The image produced by iPhoto was almost the same as the JPEG produced by the camera (slightly better, actually). However, while Darktable uses the quite good camera JPEG preview on unedited RAW images, it does the default RAW processing for the slideshow mode or export – and it’s not really good at it actually. So I started to shoot RAW+JPEG and work with JPEG images basically unless I want to do advanced processing of an image. Then I switch to RAW and I’d like to do it quickly.
