ProRAW Darkroom 5.1

December 18, 2020 – Build 51000

This a two-for-one update. First, we’re adding support for ProRAW with a new “Tone Map” slider. Second, we’re bringing all the bug fixes, performance improvements, and new features from Darkroom 5 on macOS to your iPhone & iPad.

  • ProRAW It's here. You'll be able to open and edit Apple's ProRAW with the full power of Darkroom. We even added a Tone Map slider for you to control how much of the Computational Photography magix box Apple has is applied to your photo.
  • Trackpad & Keyboard This update shares all the optimized interactions we made on Mac for trackpad, mouse, and keyboard input. On iPad you'll notice a large addition to our already extensive keyboard shortcuts and context menu support.
  • Updated Brand We als updated our App Icon to embrace the new, more lifelike rendering, borrowing from macOS Big Sur. We added 5 additional App Icon variants for our Darkroom+ subscribers, celebrating the major stylistic eras of the Mac. We also reviewed and redrew every single icon in our app. As a result Darkroom now looks and feels even more fresh & friendly.
  • Quality You’ll notice the app feels more responsive as you navigate between photos, and most importantly, images render consistently at a high resolution, rather than switching to low res previews when you zoom, scroll, or navigate through the app.

Our Darkroom+ subscription unlocks everything on your Mac, iPad and iPhone at no extra cost. And supports Family Sharing.

Darkoom on Mac

Hello Mac Darkroom 5

November 12, 2020 – Build 50000

The Apple Design Award-winning app you know and love is now tailored & optimized for its new home on the Mac! With this update, Darkroom now provides a single, powerful, and universal workflow for mobile photographers, all the way from editing on-the-go, to the Mac at home.

Everything is updated to reflect the new macOS Big Sur aesthetic. We also optimized all interactions for mouse, trackpad, & keyboard input. We spared no detail in making Darkroom feel at home on the Mac.

Your existing Darkroom+ subscription unlocks everything on the Mac at no extra cost, and new subscribers get access to everything on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Please note that today's update is only available on the Mac App Store. We're working hard on getting updates our for the iPhone & iPad soon!

  • Updated Library The library view uses the new, native macOS Big Sur sidebar, and window toolbars. This, alongside drag & drop support, folder support, and mouse support, means you can perform complex library management. Batch processing is no longer a separate mode, so it's much more efficient to quickly select a group of photos, and perform complex editing & management tasks on them. All from within Darkroom, taking advantage of native Mac behaviors.
  • Shortcuts, Menus, Touch Bar We've also expanded & updated our keyboard shortcuts to make jumping around your library even easier. Use the Mac menu system to explore the possibilities and learn the keyboard shortcuts. We even went so far as to add Touch Bar support.
  • Updated Brand We update our App Icon to embrace the new, more lifelike rendering, in the style of macOS Big Sur. We added 3 additional App Icon variants for our Darkroom+ subscribers, celebrating the major stylistic eras of the Mac. To change the icon mac follow these instructions. We also reviewed and redrew every single icon in our app. As a result Darkroom now looks and feels even more fresh & friendly.
