Description

To make use of the time it takes to import the images, the user could add metadata and tags after clicking [import], while the images are being copied.

So the workflow would look like this:

  1. user selects images to import
  2. user clicks import / hits [return]
  3. dialogue with import progress bar and import options and metadata is shown. To be filled in while darktable is at work.

This is probably somewhat less efficient in compute time, but much more efficient in user time, as dt uses the time used for selecting import options and entering metadata.
