I'm trying DigiKam and maybe I'm missing something obvious. When I edit a photo, for example, to correct the exposure, digiKam always asks me to save my changes in a file and then create one next to the original (and I do not mean a sidecar / xmp file).
Lightroom Migration I am used to a system where all my changes are stored in the database. If and when I want to have a physical file, I export the photo and Lightroom then I apply all my changes to that new file.
Is there a similar configuration that makes digiKam store all the changes in its database and does not force me to create new jpeg / png?
