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....

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.

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.

One of the best raw converters with a very active community and hundreds of video tutorials available.

Just my humble opinion but this app is not worth your attention. I am disappointed.
