Overall quite good 4/5
By TouchTodo Author
Coming from desktop raw workflow, I knew I need to give up something when comes to mobile. This app is probably as close as it gets for what’s out there. One of the key feature I’m looking for is curve, and it (kinda) has it, with fixed highlight and shadow mid point, which for the most part I’m fine with it.
The problem I have with it right now, and I hope developer can fixed it in next version, is the inconsistent preview AFTER I did the editing. For couple photos the preview inside the app shows overexposed (after I choose to modify original). It constantly skews my judgement, and esp when I want to copy over edits to other photos.
It's hard to find an editing app that removes yellow, green, red, and blue tint from images. This app does that with the color tool. But it's $5.99 in app. That's a bit steep for that feature. But don't see any other photo editing app that does that.
AMAZING APP 5/5
I have always used the photo editing options built right into the iPhone because that was the best that was out there, until this app came out, I have had the free version for a while but I decided to shell out the extra cash or the full version and boy oh boy it was worth it! I love the easy to use interface and the ability to edit raw pictures.
Now there is a few things I think would be nice features:
1. Ability to open right from the photos app so I don’t have to leave the photos app to edit my pictures.
Actually that’s it, this app is so good it doesn’t need much and it could totally go with out that but I thought it would be a cool addition. Great job guys, this app is really a masterpiece!
Super simple! 5/5
By Steele Creating
Find an image you like, and make it fabulous. Darkroom makes it simple!
There are much better (less expensive) options 3/5
The app is sleek and flashy, but I’m not paying $3.99 for features that are free in other apps. Google’s Snapseed even provides ten times the features. I personally prefer Polarr. You can adjust lighting, color, HSL, curves, grain, vignetting, all for free.
URGENT - MUST SEE 3/5
Beautiful app!! These additions would REALLY help people using this product!!
-Can you incorporate some kind of RGB Parade or Waveform/histogram analyzer?
-Can we add editing alongside another photo so we can accurately match color better?
E.g. color matching to another photo on an Instagram page/Website
Thank you for your consideration and hope to see this platform grow!!
My favorite editor. 5/5
Darkroom is an amazingly powerful editor that is focused on image refinement. I love the fact that I could try out (but not save) the premium features to see if they are worth the reasonable price. (They are worth every penny in my opinion.)
One very important feature to me is the ability to work with very high resolution files. I sometimes shoot with super resolution apps up to 48 mp or import high resolution. Files from my cameras. Darkroom can handle up to 120mp.
When viewing the Photos library it provides viewing options that allows the library to be viewed in different ways. Other then photos confusing “sort by file creation date”. That is important to me as I will often create different versions of an image. Darkroom will allow me to see all my versions adjacent to the original instead of Photos default scattering all over the library.
I’m not a big “filters user” but the ones provided are generally useful for real photographic effect. The curves and color channel controls (premium buyup) are amazing. Powerful but easy to use.
Like many other apps it allows you to add copyright information but you can also add contact info.
There are so many pluses with this app but I wish they would include some kind of a Clarity or image definition tool.
A powerful app that is generally easy to use. Loving it. My many thanks to the developers fo a job well done. So how how about that clarity or definition tool?
Good if you wanna spend all your money 1/5
You literally have to buy everything even the things I can already access on vsco cam FOR FREE. You even have to buy their filters which aren't even good.
Awesome app— from a pro photographer 5/5
I really like this app. As a professional photographer it meets my needs for ease of use, and intuitiveness. I am always on the go and I like how powerful this app is in making my photos look their best. Check out my Instagram at THEYAOH and see how awesome darkroom is.
Great app 5/5
Excellent app, but that ugly icon just makes you want to stay away from it. Worst icon by far. I hope it will get an update real soon.
I think Darkroom is the best photo editing app. It’s super fast, simple and always updated with awesome new improvements and features. I’m a graphic designer and i have to say you did a wonderful job on the UI.
One word: AMAZING!
Keep up to good work and thank you again!
THANK YOU. 5/5
IPad Pro support on the roadmap.
The absolute greatest. 5/5
Was a long time VSCO user, but I’ve officially converted. Dark Room is so much more powerful, and it’s not just throwing filters over your images (although, their selection is great there too). Love that the edits can be saved right to my camera roll, so I don’t have to be constantly uploading and downloading to edit.
Overall, Dark Room is seamless, powerful and a must-have tool for creating better photographs.
If adding video editing, it gonna be unbeatable!
Update fixed all crashes! 5/5
Thank you for update! This cleared up all the crashes on the iPhone 6 with iOS 11. App would crash when I tried to open it and if by a miracle it did open, it would crash when trying to choose a filter or freeze my phone when I would try to save an image. My phone would crash so bad, it would restart! App was unusable entirely but the developers were very responsive to my issues. I know iOS 11 has cause many issues with apps but I know with time problems get them fixed. Thanks again! I'm very happy to have my FAVORITE app back! :)
Great app with fast work flow! 5/5
Great app with intuitive control and non-destructive edits. Much faster to use than the LR app.
By spirited wings
I can't figure out how to get the ad for the curves to disappear from the screen...After I already designed half my photo
Best photo editor 5/5
This is the best photo editing app that I've come across so far, that has so much to offer for free. I'm able to slightly tweak my pics so they look natural but just better than it did before. Love love love this app!
Loved it! 4/5
I’ve been using this app for almost two years? I think. And I literally loved everything about the update except for the highlights/shadows at the bottom. I am disappointed to know that the “white” shade is gone from the colors provided I really hope you bring it back since it was what I used the most! please bring it back! also I love the vibrance editing as well.
The photo editor you want 5/5
By le grand dansker
My absolute favorite feature of this app is that I’d not have to import photos in order to edit them. It modifies photos right in the camera roll. Now with RAW support, you need not look further for a photo editor. But if they made an iPad app that would be much appreciated 🙏🏻
Best photo app 5/5
Love the custom filters!
Great app 5/5
Would love to see numbers included in the level change.
😭😐 Please Fix!!! 3/5
I love the app so much I recommend 100% but I would force close on startup, selecting photos, settings, exporting photos, pretty much anything I clicked and I shut down my phone and caused it to load for mins. Please fix so I can use such an amazing app 😭😭
New update is no longer working 2/5
App suddenly stopped working and won’t load. Will kick me out at launch. At first it would kick me out when saving the photo. Now it won’t launch at all. Please look into this.
Redesigned editing controls are harder to use 3/5
Editing controls are hard to use because touch targets are tiny and easily occluded under fingertips, so even the best effort at precision touching is just a guess.
Edit: indeed I am using an iPhone SE.
Supreme App 5 ⭐️ 5/5
I usually never give reviews but this app is just what I was looking for! The free version is not too exciting but the full version ($3.99) is spot on. I only recommend this if you plan on buying premium! Good luck editing 🙂
Very impressed with this latest release. Tools are powerful yet easily accessible, and the latest UI skin shows a lot of attention to detail, with a few minor exceptions. The export menu is well crafted, with semi translucent dark background, nice typography, etc. However, there are a few menus, such as aspect, border and favorites, that unfortunately use the default grey iOS of old. Would be nice if these were updated to match the rest of the apps look and feel. A nitpick for sure, and certainly does not detract from the remainder of this excellent app
Must have app 5/5
Probably my favorite apps. You have to buy like 2 add on tools, but they're so dirt cheap- and you know it's all good.
Do you know what I am saying!!???
New icon is gross 1/5
Decent app, but new icon is so bad I'm going to look for alternatives.
Love the app!!! 5/5
Update: it opens up now!
Loved the former app is use it often, and went to use it after updating and it won't even open! Please fix asap! Thx!
Best photo app for iOS 5/5
By Colin Robertson
Still my favorite photo editor for iPhone. It's interface is perfect for the phone. V3 is fantastic—RAW editing, perspective correction, live photo editing... amazing!
I would still love to see an iPad version at some point...
The curves editor remains the best feature of the app, but I'm also just as enamored with the color tool. It's not another app trying to create a unique library separate from your main photo library. There's no photo importing. You just see all your photos and edit from there.
I can't recommend it highly enough!
Best I've ever used. 5/5
By Jeremy Latour
By far my favorite photo editor on iOS. Curves, perspective correction, and the best filters I've ever used (and the only worth using I've ever found).
My one request: please go universal! I desperately want to do my photo editing on my iPad, but Darkroom remains iPhone only.
Darkroom gets better and better 5/5
Thanks to the developer for not abandoning this amazing app. They even made it better than before! It's very easy to use.
dont like the new icon 4/5
By Eric Mashr
3.0 added a lot of new features, the multiple export is my favourite. But I don't like the new icon. It looks cheap.
By far the greatest app to edit.
3.0 crashes at startup
The app is super cool and I haven't even purchased all of the features. But since this app runs so smoothly and allows you to use a lot of it for the free I'll probably buy the rest of the features.
Easy to Use 5/5
I use it all the time.
Darkroom Great editing app 5/5
By Cutie E
Great editing app. Using my iPhone as tool take sum very dramatic photos. This app is a great way enhance what I get in my original shots ****** star would recommend to friends. Please keep updated with changes and tutorials.
I can make very trippy art with this
Almost perfect! 4/5
Please allow me to zoom further into my photos so that I can better identify the sharpest one of the bunch. If you could also add a 5 star rating system that then allowed me to filter by star rating, I could complete eliminate my need for a desktop/laptop for my photo post process workflow. Thanks!
Almost perfect 4/5
By dan beltran
Such a great app. Let's you do quick edits and save them as presets. As a professional photographer, I sometimes prefer this over the lightroom app. The only reason I like lightroom better is for the capability to shoot in raw and the local adjustments such as selective brushing and gradient masking. Add those two things and it'll be 5 stars!
My go-to editor 5/5
By Henry Moran
By far the best app for editing photos on mobile but I've been patiently waiting for RAW support.
When will be able to see that?
Edit: that's great news! Thanks! As a mobile photographer I like to stay as light weight as possible, when could we see an iPad version? It would be great to edit on a larger screen while traveling light.
Picture Correction on the Fly!!! 5/5
Quick and easy picture improvements, and much better than the iPhone program. Very amateur friendly!
Do not purchase add-ons however, - useless, unless you convert Color pix to Black and White Photos.
Update - I would love Simple Raw Editing Features.
My new #1 5/5
By Mister Adams
I'm no photographer, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love taking pictures, so I fall more into the enthusiast category. And after the MANY apps I've tried on both the Android and iOS platforms, this is the one. Sure, I use Snapseed to whiten the eyes or teeth of a subject, or for a bit of blur, but the majority of the time, Darkroom does all I need. So much so, I purchased it! Simple photo access and fast, responsive editing that can be copied across multiple images via the very simple, yet intuitive and very beautifully designed UI! I've also found that it doesn't add excessive noise upon export others I've used, which is a huge plus. Edit an image, but not sure it's "the one"? Easy, save it as an editable version and touch it again later! Now, is it "perfect"? That is a relative answer depending on the user. But for quick, on the fly edits that will dazzle, this is the very first app I open after my capture. And usually, I don't need to open another! Keep up the great work!
My favorite photo editing app 5/5
I have so much control over my photos, and this is the only app that has eliminated the extra step of editing on my laptop when I want to fine-tune color and light. So props! Definitely recommend.
Excellent Photo Editing App 5/5
This app is really fantastic. The wide range of features available in the full version are well worth the cost. It has improved the look & feel of my images tremendously. It is highly recommended. See samples in my Instagram page: jimcostafilms.
love love LOVE 5/5
absolutely love the filters and i just love how you can edit them, best filter app out here in my opinion 💕
Simple AND effective 5/5
This app is simple and effective. And, it's user intuitive. I've downloaded several editing apps (both free and paid) and this is the only one I use. Ended up deleting the other apps recently. I absolutely love it.
