Lowpass, Highpass and how I use them

What is the difference between Darktable’s overlay and softlight blend modes?

Overlay adds contrast and softlight is a more gentle version. In this video tutorial I dive deeper into the questions I get asked most often about how I utilize Darktable's lowpass and highpass modules. I show different effects realized by combining them with overlay and softlight blend modes.

After the discussion and examples, I get to edit a contributor's RAW file. Thanks Sergei for the beautiful shot to work with.
