virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers
55 reviews

Darktable manages your digital negatives in a database and lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable. it also enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.

It tries to fill the gap between the many excellent existing free raw converters and image management tools (such as ufraw or f-spot). The user interface is built around efficient caching of image metadata and mipmaps, all stored in a database. the user will always be able to interact, even if the full resolution image is not yet loaded.

All editing is fully non-destructive and only operates on cached image buffers for display. the full image is only converted during export. The frontend is written in gtk+/cairo, the database uses sqlite3, raw image loading is done using rawspeed, high-dynamic range, and standard image formats such as jpeg are also supported. The core operates completely on floating point values, so darktable can not only be used for photography but also for scientifically acquired images or output of renderers (high dynamic range).

2 The dev's insistence not to include any kind of file handling capabilities seems baffling to me. If you've got 1000 photos that need adjusting, and the client requires a specific format and naming convention, and wants them all by 9am the next morning, you don't want to be faddling about with external file managers. I cannot stress this enough - when I used to use lightroom, I wouln't consider it exaggeration to say the integrated file handling and conversion features accounted for about 50% of that program's usefulness. There's a reason Lightroom is the professional standard, and there's a reason Adobe includes the features it does. I wish I could give 2 1/2 stars - 50% points lost for 50% of functionality missing.

2 Nepodporovanie 32bit, nemožnosť maximalizovať okno - nedá sa normálne na tom fungovať, keď si stále musím premiestňovať okno.

5 Un grand bravo et un grand merci aux dévellopeurs de cette appli magique et absolument indispensable, aux pros, ainsi qu'aux amateurs avertis et débutant ! Juste un détail, les boutons des modules et paramètres mériterais d'êtres plus gros, pour plus de confort...

5 Surprised thisisn't in the 'Photography' section. Just love this software! I use it with GIMP2.9 as my workflow. Definitely the best RAW FOSS editor around.

5 Really awesome software! I have the whole adobe cc suite but I usually only use Lightroom and this is a great way to ditch my adobe subscription once its up. Thank you for an awesome product and kepp up the good work!

5 Very powerfull and feature rich RAW converter. It requires a little bit of geting used to the workflow, good online documentation makes learning relatively quick. Darktable can very effectively use GPU for computing thanks to excelent OpenCl support.

5 Very good for Digicam-Fotos! You can change the Interface-Design (Theme) and set the Fontsize to 9 or 10 - Look at your left-down corner at the screen > Click here on "Setup" for many Programm-Preferences!

4 Version 1.6 is a vast improvement over previous versions and is now useable. However it still lacks some of the fine control that RawTherapee has and the iterface is a bit fiddly. It is more stable than rawtherapee, but the noise removal just isn't as good.

5 Great RAW converter with perfect workflow. Very fast and versatile. The 5 stars go to the software, not to the Integration in Linux Mint 17.1, as the Mint version is 15 months old and lacks some stable releases and lots of bugfixes as of March 2015.

5 Excellent work!!! Great alternative to other products. It motivated me to upgrade my LM distro to 17 so i could move to DT 1.4. Once I learned the interface it was ver intuitive. The right click for fine tune is a really great feature. Thanks!!!

5 This aims to be absolutely pro-level, mature, smooth, beautiful! Thank you developers! There are aspects of the GUI that are not quite intuitive, but I found a lot of help in the nearly 200 page PDF manual that is available. Image quality of the output is superb, making the learning curve and processing time(from RAW) worth it. NOTE: LM-13 Maya is stuck on v0.9.3 where LM-17 Qiana gets v1.4 which is a VAST improvement!

2 After installing from synaptic, clicking on Applications, Graphics, Darktable, a tab appears saying 'Starting Darktable" and after about 10 seconds disappears. No GUI ever appears.

5 Simply awesome! If you are into photography, this piece of software is essencial. Even if you don't understand much of the technical side, is also great for tagging and sorting your photos. The only drawback is that is somewhat hardware demanding. A 64bit processor/OS is the best. The development has been very active
