Software: Darktable

With the midyear 2021 I ended my worklife.

Adobe cloud is a rather expensive abo for an amateur and hobbyist, so I switched to Darktable and gimp.

Gimp is miles behind photoshop, but for my seldom used meager skills it is just fine.

Darktable is brilliant.

Of course the organizer part is rudimentary, but the modules are absolutely great, there are lots of tutorials and if you like mathematical or technical background you get it if you want it.

In the new version I fell absolutely in love with the negadoctor module to work with my scanned negs (color or bw).

Bruce Williams did a fabulous job with his about 100 tutorial vieos „hands on“ and Alexanders vids in „a dabble with photography“ give you the theoretical background.

Tip in Darktable:

In Inkscape import a nice sky and save it as vektorfile .svg in Program files-darkatbale-share-darktable-watermarks.

Now you can mask a sky and insert a new one as watermark (module watermark).

Macbook air 2016 with Kali Linux

I read a lot about wifi problems or mousepad problems installing linux on mac hardware and thze possible workarounds.

Now I tried a life distro of kali, it worked out of the box.

Than I burnt the kali regular distro on a usb stick and ran the installer.

Absolutely no problems, mousepad, wifi, display resolution working flawless.
