Only curious: why use digikam and darktable together?
It has been a while since I made the decision for that particular Workflow .
Primarily Digikam is perfect for accessing your archives
And I think the decision I went for Darktable was because of the profiled denoising which is superb.
profiling sensor and photon noise | darktable
Also does digikam have the graduated density plugin?
Workflow wise I rightclick the DNG in Digikam and open with Darktable--- Export from there as an 8bitjpeg. Once that has been processed by Gimp it is resaved as a jpeg with the image number suffixed with sh(sharpened) or cr (cropped) or db for dumb(downsized). Really quite a simple path with the DNGs remaining as my primary archive. And the edits in a secondary folder.

Gimp, RawTherapee and digiKam run under Windows, darktable (which I consider the best) runs only on Mac and Linux. The last time I tried digiKam on Windows it didn't run very reliable, experienced a lot of crashes. There's one thing that's special with digiKam: if You choose You can use a mysql-database as a storage backend for your meta-data, so you can access digiKam meta-data over Your network. That's something not even Lightroom is capable of.
