Fuji X-T20 film simulation packs for Darktable and RawTherapee

In my previous post about photography, I showed you how to get Fuji X-T20 film simulations for Capture One. In this one I will show you the same but for Darktable and RawTherapee. Please note that all these styles are not only compliant with X-T20 but they can be used with all X-TRANS III cameras.


Thanks to the amazing job by Stuart Sowerby, our community has now available all currrent Fuji film simulations (Provia, Velvia, Astia, Classic Chrome, Pro Neg Hi, Pro Neg Std, Acros, Acros + Ye, Acros + R, Acros + G, Mono, Mono + Ye, Mono + R, Mono + G and Sepia). If you visit this link, you will find various different simulation packages suitable for different Raw editors. For RawTherapee, you need to download the following package:

Then you need to follow the instructions for HaldCLUT .

What I did in Archlinux was to extract the zip, then create a HaldCLUT directory under ~/.config/RawTherapee and set the HaldCLUT location in RawTherapee Preferences.


Thanks to Andy Constanza and Jean Paul Gauche , the styles above where converted for Darktable You can get the styles below, extract the zip and import them using the styles module in lighttable tab :

As per Stuart’s Sowerby usage notes:

The simulations are designed to be applied to a neutral RAW file, this means no auto-levels or custom tone curves / contrast should be applied, although you can still use the exposure slider to correct initial brightness. Any processing to the image should ideally happen AFTER you’ve applied the simulation or you may get unintended results.
