Best features for a photo editing app! 5/5
Very easy to use, works well with no issues, tools are essential and work amazing!
After one year that I have been using this app, I have to say this is the best photo app and very easy for us to use
Mediocre, at best… 2/5
The end result of edited photos are decent, but the UI is extremely touchy & finicky. Not bad, not great, but there simply ARE better alternatives out there.
Free download but pay to use any tools 1/5
They let you download for free but you need to pay to use any of the so called great tools. Not worth it!
Highly overpriced. 1/5
6$ for curves? Really?
Universal app please 5/5
For me it is a 5 stars app but we need a universal app so we can use it on the iPad.
Best editing app ever... 5/5
I use this app to make all of my baby photos look amazing for Instagram. 5 stars. So easy to use and wish there where more filters or ability for users to share filters.
iPad version NEEDED!! Badly 5/5
That’s about it...I could really use this in an iPad compatible app to go next level with editing.
Great App 5/5
Great filters. I like being able to modify original photos without clogging up my camera role with the same photos. Easy to use, too.
Best Simple Photo editor with RAW support 5/5
By Akuserareta Railgun
My god this app is magic. I love picking it up after I import my RAW from my Sony alpha camera or from Halide manual camera app.
Only this I can complain about is WHERES MY IPAD APP!!!
One of the best 4/5
I LOVE this app. Very easy to use for RAW photo editing. One request though - can you guys make it so that when you open up a RAW photo, you can zoom in unlimited times? I noticed in Lightroom, they let you zoom in super far and see better details.
Portrait mode 4/5
My favorite editing app by far! However I’ve noticed that photos that I take in portrait mode and open in Darkroom are changed. It makes it more blurry/out of focus if that makes sense?
Trying to buy all tools and filters 5/5
Trying to buy the $7.99 package but just getting an endless spinning starburst (“Working/In-process”) wheel. No problem by me - I love your app - just letting you guys know as I imagine the last thing you want to do is impede a customer trying pay $7.99!
Very convenient 5/5
By Na buddas
As a professional photographer this product definitely makes my job much easier
Need iPad Landscape Support 4/5
Great app but need Landscape support for iPad when used with keyboard. Also, need native support for iPad. Thanks for listening.
Great when it doesn’t crash 2/5
Running iOS 11 on an iPhone X and this app always crashes on load. It’s great and I love it. But it seems to constantly crash which is frustrating. I’d try Snapseed or something else honestly.
Excellent App! 5/5
I recently discovered the Darkroom App. I immediately purchased full functionality. For years, I have made “social media” posts by editing JPG files with less than ideal image quality. Frustration finally led me to search for a better option than the stock Nikon wireless mobile utility and Apple Photos on my iPhone. That’s how I came across Darkroom (and ShutterSnitch by a different developer which allows me to download RAW files in bulk off of my Nikon camera). This combination is incredible; I only wish I would have discovered it earlier.
Note to developers: I just sent an email to you with a couple of suggestions that might make your 5 star app even better 😊
Great resource 5/5
I am delighted.
The best-ish 4/5
Probably the best photo editing experience you can have on the iPhone X.
Knocked off a star because I can’t find an easy way to adjust white balance with the app’s new RAW format support. Most apps present a list of common W/B settings and a loupe for gray card measurement.
A must have tool in picture editing 5/5
I recently came across this great application and since then it’s my essential tool in photo editing. Friendly interface and great results, what else can you ask for. Thank you for the continuous improvements.
Nice App, But... 3/5
Only if you’re willing to pay for all of the extras. If you don’t, Snapseed is infinitely better, with more tools, options, and edit possibilities for everyone from seasoned photogs to selfie-crazy bubblegummers.
Awesome app 5/5
By T J O'Spoad
Perfect for straight photography,
Simple and easy!
Ariana Perez 5/5
I really love this app because you can edit your pictures but it’s in a really cool way
Love the workflow, hate the bugs 3/5
So many bugs that never seem to get fixed. But a much improved workflow over VSCO.
By The Homeless Llama
Has everything I need for simple photo edits. The ability to save my own presets is a big time saver.
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.
