How does one delete rejected photos from within Darktable
Use 'Delete' button (Lightroom mode, right panel, 'Selected Image(s)' module): it "physically deletes" selected images from disk. It helps to display only previously rejected images by setting 'View' filter (Lightroom mode, top panel) to 'rejected only'.
For faster use, you can associate a hotkey ...
If you are looking for something closer in spirit to Aperture or Lightroom, consider Darktable. Open source, all that.
Its not as polished as Aperture or Lightroom, but it works, and is free. It has an active development group, and it gets better all the time.
First we rename all *.JPG files based on their creation date. Sometimes cameras change the file name or just ordering them is somehow not what we want. However, renaming them by the creation date always work:
jhead -n%Y%m%d-%H%M%S *.JPG
After that we put this list in a file:
ls -1tr | grep -v files.txt > files.txt
And then use mencoder to create an ...
Here is the process I use:
ufraw-batch --out-type=tif --out-depth=8 --wb=camera --exposure=0.33 --black-point=auto *.NEF
Of course, you will process CR2 files instead of NEF. I usually open just the first raw file to find acceptable parameters for ufraw-batch, such as exposure.
Then install the stacking package:
I assume you have a gradient in overall brightness due to unevben lighting. If that's the case, what you could do is to duplicate the layer with the image and apply the best correction to each part of the image on a different layer: curves for contrast, color balance or desaturate for white balancing.
Then, using layer masks you can paint each region with ...
I would look into hacking a GoPro camera/camcorder to use a continuous power source. The GoPro is very well suited to harsh environments, and already comes with a housing that could be utilized. Further, it is very reasonably priced. If you are serious about low light ability, the newest Hero3 Black Edition claims 2x better low light ability then the ...
heads-up, this is not a complete answer; it might help you get to the solution though
Your linux environment is perfect of Phil Harvey's ExifTool
The stand alone tool might have a way to be scripted to do this.
One dirty trick is to use timestamps and bracket bias data to collect images.
There is a Perl library too.

The issue you're going to have is two-fold.
The X10's EXR sensor is not something other cameras have, save for a couple of Fuji cameras. The EXR sensor can do a lot of things with the available pixels in the sensor and that is why their RAW files are a little odd compared to those of say the X-Pro1 or 100 which use the X-Trans sensors.
You'll potentially ...
So I've decided to do the following:
I'm going to buy a used Nikon D40 kit with the 18-55 lens off of eBay for about $200.
To power it I'm going to use a $9 Nikon EP-5 power supply connector and a 18W 12v to 9v buck converter I found for $4.
For communications, I'm going to try a $7 10m USB 2.0 Active Extension / Repeater Cable.
I'm going to modify a PVC ...
If you want to delete all "reject" photos, change view to "rejected only". Then you can select all by "ctrl-a".
Simply hit delete key to delete from the collection.
If you wanna delete from the disk, you need to open "selected images", and the select "delete". Of course, say "Yas".
I setup shotcut to "ctrl-delete" and it's work very well for me.
I recommend darktable. It has the features you need, plus some more. It is not overwhelming though. I like it, because the original photos are not modified. A recipe file with the postprocessing instruction is stored instead.
You will need decent amount of memory (8GB+).
In the Mask tab you can select regions of the picture that you don't want Hugin to use in the final panorama. You just have to be careful to not mask out a part of the panorama that only exists in that low-res picture, because then you will get a hole.
Decoding the ini file is possible, but translating them exactly into darkroom/shotwell edits is going to be problematic. The image manipulation algorithms are different. Your best bet is to export high quality JPEGs (or if you have a lot of disk space you can use TIFFs) and keep the RAWs as an archive. This is the approach I have taken as I moved from ...
Since you have a D5300, the answer is clear — Darktable just added support for that camera in version 1.4.2, at which point it was listed as "experimental". Darktable 1.6 was released a month ago (December 2014), so upgrading to that should solve your issue.
If it doesn't, I'd add your feedback (and a sample file?) to this issue tracker request: Feature #...
Every image format (JPEG, PNG, TIFF, etc.) that I know of can only represent rectangular images. This means that unless you define your own image format, this simply cannot be done.
The only thing you can do is to work with transparency. Even though the image itself will still be rectangular, if only a circular portion of it is opaque, it will look like a ...
In the past when attempting to install Photoshop on Linux, I've had little success. In reality there is probably no foolproof solution that will allow Photoshop to run without any problems, though there may be a few more things you can try:
Install using PlayOnLinux PlayOnLinux is a program similar to Wine, though is designed primarily to run Windows games ...
It looks like currently you can't just plug it in and have Shotwell work out-of-the-box, but if you don't mind a little work, you can mount the camera via "PTP" mode and then import the images from the filesystem. See this blog entry from someone who did this on FreeBSD; the Linux situation will be similar.
Probably eventually the software will gain direct ...
A reasonable answer to this would be "it depends" (another perspective is to "battle a little against the idea of objective metrics")
I'd recommend consulting this chart to determine how long you should spend trying to figure out a quicker way if 'quickness' is what you are looking for.
However if you decide to approach this as an exercize in ...
Exiftool reads many raw formats.
You can use a command similar to this one to rename your photo files :
exiftool '-filename<CreateDate' -d %y%m%d_%H%M%S%%-c.%%le -r -ext cr2 /path/to/pictures
Change cr2 to whatever your raw extension is, and /path/to/pictures to the desired folder. Once renamed, you can sort them by name. There are more examples ...
Most every DSLR/SLT/DSLM - certainly major brands like Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax - saves to SD or CF cards in a standard format, and additionally supports USB mass storage protocol, you DO NOT NEED any drivers installed on a host computer to be able to access the images taken.
Tethering, or upgrading camera firmware, might indeed prove difficult from a ...
G3 / F3
Godox/Flashpoint has released an OSX version of the G3/F3 updater. However, at this time, it only supports updates for the following devices:
for Pentax TT350-P and Xpro-P

For all other devices, or from Linux, however there are a few different ways you can do this, if you don't want to, say, ...
If you have a Canon DSLR and are willing to install Magic Lantern then there is a great feature that solves this problem nicely.
When you do bracketed shots through ML you can configure it to generate a small shell script that runs enfuse on the set of images. The script is written to the same directory as the pictures.

The Fuji X-E1 works with Ubuntu Precise Pangolin (12.04 LTS) out of the box. The camera just needs to be connected via the provided USB-cable. Ubuntu will recognize the camera as PTP-camera, and open either Nautilus (file manager) or Shotwell (photo manager) at the user's choice. Both applications are pre-installed by default.
I noticed however, that ...
Yes, using the collect images module on the left. Select 'history' from the left dropdown menu then double-click on 'altered' to show only those images which have been modified. Try Darktable's user manual page for a fuller explanation.
Additionally you can stack rules so you can narrow down searches, eg, by searching by a particular roll or folder and ...
There isn't one, overall. I don't think anything focuses on this specifically. Any distro can work just fine, and I suggest picking one that you like in general and the photography apps will follow.
That said, there are two considerations that are probably worth... considering.
First, unless you plan to find and compile various software yourself, you want ...
I'll tell you right away that there is no chance for me to answer without being very technical. Since you're looking for an open source solution it cuts away all of the commonly used programs and leaves us with a bunch of programs that require more from the user. The advanced part has nothing to do with photography though. The technicalities lies in ...
