Step into the world of professional photo and video editing with Darkroom: Photo & Video Editor, a powerful and user-friendly mobile-centric app for iPhone, iPad, and macOS. With features comparable to VSCO, Snapseed, Facetune, and PicsArt, Darkroom lets you unleash your creativity and edit your images like a pro.

Harness the power of AI-Powered Depth Editing and Smart Object Detection to create 3D maps of your scenes and isolate specific elements like sky, hair, or skin in your photos. Darkroom stands out as an excellent alternative to Adobe Lightroom, Canva, and Adobe's other photography tools.

Craft your own unique presets using the same tools as professional photographers and enjoy a user-friendly interface with touch-friendly Curves and Selective Color tools, making photo editing a breeze compared to other apps like Lightroom or PicsArt.

Edit RAW photos at full resolution with 16 bits of color depth and explore Darkroom's video editing capabilities, including real-time playback and 4K video color grading. A perfect replacement for CapCut, InShot, and other video editing apps, Darkroom lets you apply filters, frames, and tools to your videos with ease.

Efficiently organize your library with Darkroom's comprehensive album management suite, and simplify hashtag creation and exportation with its hashtag manager & Siri shortcuts feature. Edit and manage your photos in batches, just like you would in PicsArt or Canva, all within one app.

Darkroom's Membership Trial and Subscription offers unbeatable value, making it a more affordable choice than Adobe Photoshop or other premium photo editors. Effortlessly manage your subscription and turn off auto-renew in the app settings. Fans of VSCO, Peachy, and IG filters will love Darkroom, and it's a fantastic Canva and Pic Collage alternative for on-the-go photo and video editing.

What’s New

Version 6.3.12

With our official Leica FOTOs integration, you can now select FOTOS as your preferred Camera app in Darkroom, and jump directly to it during an editing session. Similarly, you can go from previewing a photo in FOTOs, and start editing it in Darkroom with one tap.

To celebrate the occasion we also included three new app icon variants available to our Darkroom+ members for their textural enjoyment: Red Dot pays homage to the craft of Leica, Highlight pairs with our previously released Shadow, and Macintosh is a nostalgic and skeuomorphic nod to the granddad of modern computing.

Editors’ Notes

You don’t need lots of time or pro skills to make the most of this ultra-fast, super-intuitive photo editor. Darkroom can access your whole photo library at once, letting you immediately start cropping, adjusting curves and using preset filters or creating your own—until your pics are exactly how you want them.

Darkroom Delights!

I love this application. Have dipped in and out of it over the years but it's obvious this is a labour of love for its small team of developers and it shows. Key reasons I like it: 1) It seamlessly integrates with Apple Photos including raw support so i'm not managing photos in multiple locations 2) The new render engine gives much more lattitude for shadow/highlight recovery and sufficient for 99% of my work which is mostly shared digitally with occasional prints up to A3. 3) Presets and ability to share them means I can apply high quality consistent looks without resorting to Lightroom or VSCO subscriptions. Particularly like the Fuji Classic Chrome they have to download on their website. 4) same app across all my apple devices for one small subscription or a bargain on-off cost in my case which is less than half the cost of one year of Lightroom. Paired with Affinity Photo this covers all of my editing needs. Your mileage may vary but great job to the Darkroom team. Happy customer.
