Hi there anonimous and avid eyes =)
 
As I keep running into a myriad promiscuous issues and, as some of you might come across same demons and ninpho-psico-syrens, thought of sharing my palliative antidotes
 
Other than having your display calibrated, if you’re using Firefox as web browser, it is not a bad idea to tweak its colour settings… not only for the pseudo-geek kick out of it but for practical improvement reasons aka colour accuracy

Ok that’s it, before going to kill my neighbour’s dog, you need to try this piece of open source software. Probably one of the best DAM (digital asset managemt) programs I’ve laid my hands on. In many departments it’s way better than Lightroom, easier than Rawtherapee, faster than Lightzone and not a PITA to build as some other software, i.e. Digikam, mac user here. You can import single images or whole folders into it, Darktable just imports the embed jpeg, so its ultrafast and works locally. It can save styles/presets and exports 32bit depth images. Almost all effects, tweaks and corrections have blend options, loads of them, some even… Bezier region tools, zone system like, tons of interesting tools for further tweaking the look of your images; colorists will feel at home. We’re now in version 1.4.1, it has come a long long way  🙂
