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.

Nice simple editor with issues with RAW processing.

Downloaded this app after a recommendation and to give it a try as a replacement for Snapseed (which doesn’t read the RAW files from my Fuji X100T).

After accidentally buying all the features (had my finger on the fingerprint scanner as I happened to click on the purchase option 😅) I was set on making it my main editor on my iPad and iPhone.

Unfortunately even though the app recognises the photographs as Raw files and gives all the usual editing parameters RAW photographs don’t show the true colour temperature (Kelvin) and tint values instead of just showing as a standard -100 to 100 scale. Exposure and the other options also seem much more limited in range than they should be. Does the app not have full access to the RAW data?

Other than that its a nice simple way to edit with a nice set of filters. I also like how easy it is to batch edit, seeing all your photographs in a grid which you can scroll through rather than opening up files individually as you would in something like Snapseed.

Would review higher if the issues with the Raw editor are resolved or fully explained.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We will consider request to tweak our temperature tool.

RAW processing lacking

This app has a good UI and the integration with Halide is nice. However I find that the raw processing is just not very high quality. The adjustments you can make do not seem to affect the full dynamic range of the RAW in the way you might hope. It’s tone mapping algorithm simply seems poor. This is most noticeable if you have a RAW where the highlights appear slightly blown out in the associated iOS JPG. With Lightroom and Snapseed, you can easily process the raw to regain full detail in the highlights, whereas however you change the parameters in Darkroom it is impossible to bring the detail back. The highlights will be more blown out than even the JPG whatever you do. I am not sure what is going on but I think some work needs doing on the basic processing algorithms in this app before it is worth using, at least for RAW

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. We are aware and hard at work making sure out RAW toolset is a lot better in coming releases.
