Description

Hi,

I would like to have the ability to restore the history stack to the state it was in when a snapshot was taken. This would allow the following workflow:

- Edit the image and get it to a point that seems satisfactory.
- Take a snapshot.
- Try to improve the result by tweaking the image some more while comparing with the snapshot.
- If the result is better, discard the snapshot.
- Otherwise restore the stack to the state of the snapshot (best so far).

You can use duplicates for that. They are cheap to make and easy to throw away when the experiment hasn't worked.

But your idea would allow for easy comparison between two versions, as it's snapshot based. That is a major advantage.

Thanks, I didn't know about duplicates. Another advantage is that you wouldn't need to leave the darkroom in order to save the current state (as far as I'm aware, you need to go back to the lighttable if you want to create a duplicate).

ctrl-d should work from darkroom, too.
