Editors’ Choice

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.

Broken. Just as another recent poster says, bad landscape vs portrait

For some reason, the app is not picking up the orientation on the photo taken on my iPhone 12. It rotates them 90 degrees clockwise when it shouldn’t. Then, to edit them, I turn the iPad Pro or iPhone sideways (the error is happening consistently on either device). Sometimes when switching the photo is distorted, but this whole situation really makes me worry about what is happing to the base image stored, and about the orientation of exports. in any case it’s a serious bug, and has caused me to exercise some of the other photo apps. I’ll be checking back for the fix to this, and will definitely switch back and update my rating to a 5 star when you get it straightened out. Do love the app.
One big feature request—choice of sort method of “My filters” or even any and all filters, either by alphabetic sorting, or frequency of use, or recency of use.

Hi Beaconmark, we will be adding the requested features to the Filters feature! Also, would you mind sending us a message at feedback@darkroom.co so we can detect the cause for the bug you're experiencing.

Screenshots are pictures too

If I could add one advanced feature it would be spot-selected white balance, but I'm content with the controls for the most part. If I could add one basic feature that really shouldn't be an issue, though, it'd be to import screenshots. Why the hell are screenshots excluded? I have this near-perfect photo editor and can't edit 1/4 of my photos. I know screenshots aren't ideal for printing but they're good for testing crops and testing edits of photos, the latter I can't do without making copies of photos thanks to this app's strange limitation. Yes I can test edits on a single image but I would have to note and undo every edit to try the next. It just seems so much more inefficient than simply allowing screenshots to be edited.

Edit: added one star. It's good that screenshots aren't completely excluded, but I still wish they appeared in albums like normal photos do. In an attempt to declutter, per developer's response, I feel like they've actually created more clutter in making screenshots harder to navigate and cause needless frustration by making them disappear from albums they're in. If you want to declutter the normal camera roll, that's fine, but favorites and other albums should be left alone.

Developer Response ,

Screenshots are there, we just hide theme to declutter. In the Album selector, pick the Screenshots Smart Album and browse and edit to your hearts content.
