darktable, and LUTs that mimic Fujifilm film simulations

As time allows I'm learning Darktable but its immense and unfamiliar - so is a huge learning curve.

Hi Steve

Welcome to Fujiland. I shared my standard workflow with darktable. Just to let you know. But yes, it takes some time to learn.

Kind regards,


Thanks Martin

Yes I have looked at your workflow and intend to get round to it. I like the idea of DR but it really is daunting compared to LR plus I am heavily windows based and taught so linux style apps always cause me issues - my issue with DR was as a baseline trying to get the images to look like OOC.. as my starting point and it was that I was struggling with. I have been talking to Bastibe too regarding this as I know he is working on some styles and LUTS.


darktable runs perfectly fine on Windows. I did this for the first one or two years.

My workflow should provide you quite good OOC looking images.

The. OOC look is thanks to Stewart Sowerby's great LUTs. I have never encountered as good Fujifilm film simulations mimicking LUTs as those. But the newer film simulations are lacking. Also, they're actually made for X-Trans III. But the difference to the generation IV is not that big so they work also with the X-T4.

Please let me know should you have good LUTs.

Also thinking of making own LUTs but but similarly like you, I have too many interests and hobbies, too much work, family, and never find enough time
