A 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.
RAW is the unprocessed capture straight from the camera's sensor to the memory card, nothing has been altered.
There are some free alternatives for RAW development (ufraw, dcraw, rawtherapee) but darktable tries to fill the gap between the excellent existing free raw converters and image management tools (such as e.g. ufraw, rawstudio, f-spot, digikam, shotwell). It focuses on the workflow to make it easier for the photographer to quickly handle the thousands of images a day of shooting can produce. It's also one of the very few FOSS projects able to do tethered shooting.
How to get started:
Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari
Please update to the latest 2.0.0+. The current version of Darktable 1.6.4 does not open my .CR2 RAW files from Canon.
looking go so far i will get back to you all after i use the app
a really good idea :) is a bit 'slow, but it will improve. It would be nice to have it in all languages
Best RAW developer.
