What’s New

Version 4.1.8

We are continuing our spring cleaning streak with this release. In case you missed it, in the past 2 months we have quietly shipped 7 updates tackling a wide variety of issues. In this release we're primarily focusing on the experience of launching Darkroom for the first time, but also refining every other part of the app:

* The Live Photo indicator now supports tap-and-hold as well as 3D Touch to play and stop the video preview.
* Improved the Portrait photo indicator and switcher to improve legibility, tappability, and more.
* Improved behavior when photo access is restricted by Screen Time.
* Fixed the album picker bar on iPhone hiding the labels after rotating your device.
* Fixed Export frames bug that prevented inset width of zero from working.
* Fixed a failure in Filter Backup causing the progress dialog to get stuck.
* Fixed the Frame Inset and RAW Exposure slider to no longer jump when editing for the second time..
* Fixed a bug in the Color Histogram that highlighted the incorrect bars reflecting a color region.

*Know Issues*

* Editing Depth and RAW photos can feel slow.
* The Depth Blur slider doesn't work for some photos.
* The Depth Blur slider seems missing on my iPhone Xs and iPad.
* There can be a mismatch between exports and the in-app preview for RAW photos.
* Zooming in on a RAW photo can crash Darkroom.
* Opening multiple RAW photos after each other can crash Darkroom.

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.

My favorite editor.

Darkroom is an amazingly powerful editor that is focused on image refinement. I love the fact that I could try out (but not save) the premium features to see if they are worth the reasonable price. (They are worth every penny in my opinion.)

One very important feature to me is the ability to work with very high resolution files. I sometimes shoot with super resolution apps up to 48 mp or import high resolution. Files from my cameras. Darkroom can handle up to 120mp.

When viewing the Photos library it provides viewing options that allows the library to be viewed in different ways. Other then photos confusing “sort by file creation date”. That is important to me as I will often create different versions of an image. Darkroom will allow me to see all my versions adjacent to the original instead of Photos default scattering all over the library.

I’m not a big “filters user” but the ones provided are generally useful for real photographic effect. The curves and color channel controls (premium buyup) are amazing. Powerful but easy to use.

Like many other apps it allows you to add copyright information but you can also add contact info.

There are so many pluses with this app but I wish they would include some kind of a Clarity or image definition tool.

A powerful app that is generally easy to use. Loving it. My many thanks to the developers fo a job well done. So how how about that clarity or definition tool?

Nice but.....

It’s a nice app but needs a lot of work. The interface looks good, but it’s lacking a few key features such as white balance, exposure slider etc. As said, nice app but not worth the asking price of 9.99. If I apply a b&w filter and I notice that the saturation slider is set to zero, I’m out. Sorry. The idea is nice, so is the group of ppl you’re targetting I reckon.

I’m not impressed by the developers answer at all. It’s not worth $9.99. What about an exposure slider, dehaze, WB, reversed vignetting, etc, etc. there are better apps for less. And if you say you enjoy this as a pro you’re not a pro.

And I never said I didn’t like the app. All I say is that it’s not worth $9.99. I will be happy to give more stars if you come up with an app that’s worth the money. In other words, keep working on it and add pro tools in the future. Basic tools like exposure and white balance should be in here to start with. Then there are whites, highlights, blacks, shadows, vignette to the darken or lighten. Ah well I think you know what’s there. Oh and I have some positives too. Interface is nice, intuitive, it’s fast and frames are a nice tool too. When it comes to filters I would suggest not to put too much energy in filters. There are many (free) apps who can do the trick. And, in the bigger scheme of it all, “how many filters do we really need?”. Good luck, keep up the good work.

Thank you for your feedback. Darkroom, like any software, is a work in progress. While it is true that we don't have all features, we do our best to build the ones we have well.
