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 4.6.1

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue with importing images in recursive mode. Using this mode without having first selected a directory could freeze darktable due to it having to parse the whole disk (though it would recover eventually).
  • When importing images in recursive mode, the thumbs for images discovered in sub-directories are now properly displayed.
  • Fixed memory and resource leaks in the QOI image loader.
  • Fixed RGBE image loader.
  • Fixed possible issue with guide lines not being displayed in the Rotate and Perspective module.
  • Fixed non-persistent zoom level in culling mode when switching images.
  • Fixed crashes related to details mask when running low on GPU or system memory.
  • Fixed incorrect rendering of an initial snapshot after creating a second snapshot.

I really wanted to give it a chance, but it exits every time I just click the Darkroom tab.

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.
