What’s New

Version 6.7.2

We're excited to introduce automatic preset syncing and backup in Darkroom. Now all your custom and community presets will automatically synchronize across your devices, along with the favorites, arrangement, and even the sets you've chosen to hide. It's a significant step forward in enhancing your photo editing workflow, offering consistency and convenience on your iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Previously, Darkroom's preset management across multiple devices was a manual process that disrupted your creative workflow. Now all your presets are always accessible, eliminating the need for manual backing up, restoring, or manually sharing between devices. And because it's backed by iCloud, syncing works out of the box without a user account. It's as easy as that!

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.


Great features but unstable

Although there are no selective editing brushes, Darkroom is probably the only editor with this many editing tools that allows you to batch edit on mobile. The only thing that’s missing is some stability. It always crashes on my 5th gen iPad mini. The only things I would improve is the stability of app itself, the grain feature, because the grain gets wayyy to gritty, and a noise reduction feature. Honestly I think noise reduction would be more important than a selective brush. I could use Darkoom for event photo editing, where I barely finding myself using the selective brush, but then that leaves out a trusty noise reduction feature so I feel like it really limits my options when it comes to picking a project to edit with this app. I would still rather stick to doing the majority of my editing with Lightroom. This app came very close to opening up my workflow but that one feature of noise reduction missing is a deal breaker for me.

We have been long at work resolving this issue and hope to ship the fix for it soon.

Crashing on new iPad M2

This week I been trying to back up and organize my photos. upload/download, then edit in Darkroom and re-upload to a photo site. I opted for darkroom over light room cause that’s how you develop photos in real life. Anyway I’m trying to edit about 1500 photos and after about 10 or 20 the app lags out and crashes. Progress is saved picture by picture so no loss of work. However, it would be nice if I could just select all and use a custom filter I made. Rather than having to go through each and every photo and click several buttons over an over for hours on end. Been at this for a few days on an off hour here hour there. So I think your app is having issues with my large library or it is just buggy, either way wanted to let you know my experience. just can’t do multiple photo edits and can’t seem to avoid crashes every few sets of edits. Thanks, love the app and will continue to use it. Fix the stability and add multiple image editing ability and I’ll start up a paid subscription.

Edit-found the "Batch" edit, the ability to edit multiple photos was there the whole time. Please work on application stability
