module order

Change the order of the processing modules in the darkroom using presets.

When processing an image, the active modules are applied in a specific order, which is shown in the right-hand panel of the darkroom view. This module provides information about the current ordering of the processing modules in the pixelpipe. The name of the currently-selected preset is shown in the module header (or “custom” if the user has manually modified the order). The following presets are available for selection.

v3.0 RAW
This is the default module order for scene-referred RAW development workflow.
v3.0 JPEG
This is the default module order for JPEG development.
This module order is used for the legacy display-referred workflow. You will also see this order displayed for any images you previously edited in darktable prior to version 3.0.

Note: changing the order of modules in the pixelpipe is not a cosmetic change to the presentation of the GUI – it has real consequences to how the image will be processed. Please do not change the order of the modules unless you have a specific technical reason and understand why this is required from an image processing perspective.

For more information about changing module order please refer to the pixelpipe & module order.
