I've installed darktable, but I had a lot of trouble running the videos
which were promised. I guess I will use the manual.
Is darktable supposed to substitute for gimp altogether?

I am interested. I've used hugin to create panoramas with my view
camera. I make two or three exposures on color negative film using a
panoramic head, scan them and then combine them with hugin. It allowed
me to take a picture of a building facade from relatively close up with
my 75 mm (roughly equivalent to 18-23 mm in 35 mm) lens which I couldn't
possibly do in one exposure. Of course with a view camera lens, the
lens distortion is so small that it is not usually worth worrying about.
The problem with hugin is that the learning curve is pretty steep, and I
don't use it often enough to remember how to use it.
