Darktable overview

Darktable is an open-source photography workflow application and raw developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable, and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.

What’s new in version 4.0.1

Updated on Sep 19 2022

Other Changes:
  • Variables $(MAKER) and $(MODEL) can now be used when importing files.
  • Display infinity for very large focus distance as supported by the exif standard.
Bug Fixes:
  • Fix overexposed indicators after cropping.
  • Fix DNG creation in the HDR merge module (ColorMatrix could be zero).
  • Fix culling layout, which could be broken after a second use when changing the number of images (e.g. when rejecting an image).
  • Fix GUI reset of the export module when using TIFF format.
  • Fix copy of iop-order in merge mode when multiple instances are used in the destination images.
  • Fix color filtering issue on Windows.
  • Fix possible black screen when using auto-white balance on Windows.
  • Properly retain the access and modified timestamps when using copy and import.
  • Fix color picker reset in color zones module.
  • Fix help link for module layout management.
  • Fix crash after a failed camera tethering attempt.
  • Add support for fast pipe mode on the diffuse module. Fast pipe mode is used to bypass long-running modules while interactively changing another module's parameters where that module does not require accurate image display. For example, it is used to improve responsiveness of the on-screen display in the crop and rotate/perspective modules.
  • Fix some color picker button action types.
  • Fix crash in Latex export.
  • Fix website gallery export.
  • Fix a file-handle leak.
  • Fix a memory corruption in sharpen module that could lead to a crash.
  • Fix vectorscope histogram display to avoid cropping the primary and secondary nodes (top and bottom).
  • Add HEIF media type association for the desktop.
  • Fix possible crash when using the color checker without a properly selected patch.
  • Fix sorting of LUT 3D files and left-align the entries for better readability.
  • Disable upscaling when export size is set to original image dimensions (0) as this does not have meaning and could crash darktable.
  • Fix possible crash when applying a time-offset to images.
  • Fix crop-size information displayed on screen (rounding issue).
  • Fix blending detail mask memory requirement.
  • Fix crash when zooming with fingers on an empty lighttable.
  • Ensure that external format size limits are enforced during export.
  • Some CSS fixes on color, contrast, positioning of combo-boxes, check-box size, scrollbars and progress bars.
  • Fix JPEG APP1 header (skip 6-byte header).
  • Fix some missing translations in notebook tabs.
  • Use a color-managed background for color balance rgb module sliders.
  • Light up midi modifier keys when shift/ctlr/alt are pressed.
  • Some speed improvements (tuned compiler options, some optimized routines)

very good app but painfully slow on my late 2018 imac (16 GB ram, 3,8 GHz i5 cpu, Radeon Pro 580 8GB) . I have tried everything to configure it to run quickly but with no effect. due to very slow running almost unusable

I was able to run Darktable 3.0.1.2 for a while on my iMac and edited several photographs. But then it crashed while importing images. It now refuses to open at all. I uninstalled and reinstalled 3.0 and even tried the same with previous versions. None will open either from the dock or from clicking the icon. I wish it were more reliable. To those who complain about the small screen font size, it really is adjustable. You just need to know where to look to make the changes.

Great pro app with a very nice GUI on Macbook Pro Retina. Maybe not for beginners but can help create pleasing images. A lot of features and some very sophisticated ones like color zones you won't find anywhere else so it needs a little getting used to. It also has a lens correction module for my little Olympus primes and noise profiles for the camera! In all I found 4 de-noise modules! Also automatic perspective correction. Remember to always click the little little button on the left side of the module's title bar to activate that module. This app is a keeper and has a learning curve but it's worth it. Thanks! BTW saving edited images is under Section "lighttable" / "export selected" module, export button at the bottom....

Rubbish GUI. Font size set to 2pts - too small to read on HD screen, forget about it on MB Pro Retina screen. Searching on web, seems users have to tweak a config file to change the font size for all dialogue boxes in the GUI! Really?? Can't be done by settings/preferences it seems, start diving into config files? Pass. It may get 4 stars from others, but 1/2 star from me for rubbish GUI and crazy way to change fonts for GUI.

I just read that a new version is out for Darktable ... "darktable 2.6.0 released". Unfortunately, there is something wrong with the Darktable website at the time of this posting. When I go to the download page, the page starts to jump, twitch, and otherwise is unreadable. I looked at Darktable long ago. It looks to be a nice and a useful app. If they get their download problem fixed, I will again check it out.

One of the best suites of tools for working with RAW image files regardless of price, and with its very active and cooperative developers community it just gets better and better. It is not intended to be an "editor" but rather a "finisher" of images. This requires a very clear concept of what one wants out of an image — not some vague sense of "vibrant" or "sharper" — which can be challenging at first, especially for one accustomed to dumbed-down editors that offer automated quick fixes. Yet the precision and versatility of this collection of software is well worth the effort, and helps to encourage better exposures to start with. Be aware that the core development occurs under Linux, the OS X version is a port maintained by a separate group of volunteers, and there often is a lag between versions. Also, new hardware support can be delayed depending on who is available to code and review it, but when that support does get committed, it is typically better than the manufacturers' own support.

I dunno, man. This is one of the most unnecessarily obtuse GUIs I think I’ve ever seen. The dark background and streamlined graphics make you think this is a modern GUI, but it doesn’t quite work like one. I still can’t figure out HOW to access an external drive with all my photos on it. As far as I can tell you can only access your local volume, which is crazy. And if you can then why is it so obtuse to figure out how? It shouldn’t be this difficult, but it is. Maybe if you want to deep dive and revisit 1995 you’d like this program, but unless you’re really, really, really into debugging apps it probably isn’t worth your time. Maybe someday it’ll get there. Just not today.

Note the app is at 1.6.4 and posts here show It is at 1.6.7. I tried downloading 1.6.7 but It's at the geeks only level. I can download It but I cant just click and open It, It has to be assembled with all the folders and packages and ... stuff. I cant do that so It going to remain at 1.6.4. And oddly enough, 1.6.4 opens but wont click between views. It seems sidelined and I was hoping for a fresh version.
