Do you use the same modified Camera profile for most of your shots ?
unfortunately no. I always change the colors in the custom image (not just the profile from natural to portrait but also customising the other settings, such as hue, saturation, contrast etc inside the profile)

My view on this is:

If you are going to shoot raw and post process the image, you are going to be better served by doing the PP on a computer with software, and not in-camera.

Your computer has more processing power and the software will be more advanced.

I have been using raw files for photography for over 15 years. I cannot recall a single occasion where I edited the raw file to produce a jpeg, in camera.

Problem solved!


Thank you for everyone! The easiest solution was using the DCU5 (Digital Camera Utility 5 app) what is automaticaly can see all the custom image settings what I made not just for the jpg but also for the raw file, so I can export in TIFF and use it in photoshop!

Thank you for everyone, I hope this will helps for others too!

I'm afraid your understanding is incorrect. Neither RT nor DT use the thumbnail to set any data for raw development. They do use it for instant display in the thumbnail overview but as soon as you open a raw for processing, it reverts to the flat basic settings. You can define your own preset styles to be applied as you open the raw file but that is it. Other than that, these two converters will behave like any other raw converter does with raw files - it is up to you to "be the jpeg engine".

There's a good thread on the forum about how to achieve good starting points close to camera jpegs in Darktable:
Thanks for the clarification and the link.
