I often require an enlarged canvas. I always crop my portrait snaps to a 4:5. I do not like 2:3 portrait. In this sample, I do not want to loose any of the vertical real-estate. I would like to add canvas to the left.

Is there a way to create and save a custom file opening history stack ?Currently, I have to change many of the opening defaults for every file I process.eg. these are the steps I take before even starting to process the image...Highlight Reconstruction/Method:  Guided LaplaciansLens Correction:  Turn OffExposure:  Turn Off or Set to 0Filmic RGB/Options/Preserve Chrominance:  Set to NoColor Balance RGB:  Turn Off or Set all settings to 0Color Balance:  Turn OffMost of my picture files are of live music events with extreme dynamic range that always contain blown out highlights & lots of out of gamut colors

The XMP specification calls for the <xmp:Label> property.The XMP file Ansel creates contains only a private <darktable:colorlabels> property.Is it possible to also add the <xmp:Label>colorXXX</xmp:Label> to the generated XMP file ?This would allow for any application to be able to read the Color Label.This would be the same as the currently generated Star Number <xmp:Rating>numberXXX</xmp:Rating> that is already generated by Ansel as per XMP specification.I think it would be very helpful if there are other properties that could also be generated using the XMP specification, so as to allow any application that reads XMP files, to at least have a fighting chance in pulling as much data as possible.

Wondering what app you all use to sift through your snaps, prior to importing the keepers into Ansel. I am currently giving FastRawViewer a trial. Any other app suggestions ?

Numerous photos I process have the subject surrounded in black. After I Rotate it, I move next to the Crop module. Very difficult to see the image outline as it is black and the Crop background is black.In this sample you can make out the images' bottom angled edge, but not the other 3 edges.Is there a simple CSS tweak ? If so, what would xxxxx be ?@define-color xxxxx_bg_color @grey_25;

As is the case with the Scopes Panel (ctrl+scroll) height, I would like the Navigation Panel height to be adjustable.

... the 'add to library' has the thumbnail view but it it would be a much better UI if the 'add to library' was actually a file preview/browser that could be maximized to full screen with the preview becoming the main object making up 95% of the screen with the ability to zoom into picture at 100% to check for focus etc. and then click on the 'add to library' button to import. Or better still, add a check box to each file and one can go through all the files and click the check box for the keepers and then click the 'add to library' button.

Thanks, I just watched your video https://youtu.be/F3CeJ1F4wV8 and now I do not see a need for 'Inpaint Opposed'
I would like to see a number rating 0 to 9 addedI would like to see a alfa rating a - zI would like to see the number of stars increased to 9and perhaps the number of colors increasedI shoot live music and I find the need to define band/member/rating/misc. As in a music festival there may be 12 bands that perform, each have band members, each member photo needs to be rated, there are also misc photos that include audience, backstage etc that need to be separated from the artists.I would love to be able to apply all those ratings prior to an actual import into Ansel. Probably a very big job to do but as I mentioned in other posts, I really see the need for a simple file browser prior to import.

I would really like to see the 'Inpaint Opposed' method added to the Highlight Reconstruction module

I concur. Ansel really needs a simple browser for viewing/zooming/rating files before import.
