Description

I shoot sports usually with two bodies to cover near and far sufficiently.
I would really like to see the filename display above or below the image
display in darkroom view as I frequently make different adjustments for
different cameras, Nikon D3 and D7100.

thankyou

History

#1 Updated by Ulrich Pegelow over 5 years ago

I really would not want to clutter the darkroom mode more than it already is.

On the left side we already have the image information panel with a lot of info including the file name.

#2 Updated by Patrick Shanahan over 5 years ago

That is true but to see more of the image, the panel is usually closed

#3 Updated by Julien CHIQUET over 5 years ago

In fact, I agree with Patrick ; displaying filenames in lighttable would be very practical. In current version (1.4.1) is only displayed file extension which is not, maybe, the most informative tag. You have to put the mouse over the picture to have more informations displayed in the frame : color label, rating and the reject indicator (and other exif tags displayed in the image information module).

For best improvement, it would be great to have ability to display other informations directly into the frame, so you don't have to use information panel for all images. This could be made with a GUI option allowing to select for default display the filename, color rating, reject indicator and rating (maybe other exif informations, keeping in mind the UI should remain clean enough).

@Julien: it was about the darkroom view.

@Patrick:

Hey, come on :)

You open the panel, you get the name, you close it again.

Versus: all other users are plagued with continuously seeing the name without not the slightest benefit of it.

What is preferred?

#5 Updated by Patrick Shanahan over 5 years ago

No, I work sets containing 800-1200 photos and usually proceede completely thru in darkroom view and switching back and forth multiplies required processing time 2 or 3 fold.

I would also like to be able to apply tags from darkroom, but that will come in another request.

tks,

@Ulrich : all my apologizes. I think I read a bit quickly the feature request, and may be I understood what I wanted to. I will submit this feature as a new request.

switching back and forth multiplies required processing time 2 or 3 fold.

The info panel is available in darkroom view, you just need to make it visible. I agree with wanting to avoid clutter in darkroom view. Maybe adding a keybinding to show/hide the left panel would help here.

#8 Updated by Patrick Shanahan over 5 years ago

I agree that a keybinding would better the/my situation. My preference would be the name displayed.

tks,
