49 thoughts on “darktable 2.0.7 released

  1. Thanks! I recently processed hundreds of my vacation photos on my 5k imac with 2.0.6. A few glitches here and there but no showstoppers and I’m very happy with Darktable at this point.

    Some constructive criticism (mostly I would expect known issues but you never know):

    The biggest problem I have at this point is simple ux: a lot of the ui elements are tiny and hard to grab with a mouse. I’ve seen people struggle with this in various youtube tutorials. E.g. most sliders are painful and especially on parametric masks this is very fiddly. Also, I think this UI would be downright painful with a touch screen in its current form for the same reason.

    I know there is an open issue for undo. I’ve on multiple occasions lost changes by messing with the history. One wrong move there and your changes are gone. There is no undo.

    Creating new instances of filters is a nice feature but it would be nicer still if we could rename them. I’m sure this is somewhere in the issue tracker already. The way the filters reorder or duplicate themselves when you edit or create new instances is a bit confusing. I’ve had issues with the filter view switching to the wrong column when creating new instances of filters. This is somewhat confusing as well but after it happened a couple of times I knew where too look.

    I’ve had issues with crop & resize where my attempts to grab one of the edges becomes a “move the rectangle” or doesn’t work at all. The latter goes away if I switch the image to full screen with the tab button. I think this is another case of too small click targets. Also it’s sometimes hard to get it back to the edit mode when you’ve confirmed the change. I work around this by right clicking the angle slider, which seems to do the trick.

    • Hi, first of all, thanks to the developers, I love darktable.

      +1 especially for:

      “a lot of the ui elements are tiny and hard to grab with a mouse”.

    • A wacom tablet has solved this problem for me, as an addition to the mouse. Once you get used to the stylus, it makes really fun and keeps you relaxed.

    • +1

      “The biggest problem I have at this point is simple ux: a lot of the ui elements are tiny and hard to grab with a mouse”

    • I agree, the GUI is hard to use with a touchscreen. And the parametric blending sliders are hard to use, too. However, our regular sliders are totally fine IMO. After all, you don’t have to click the small triangle to interact with them. Just click anywhere on the slider and drag the mouse around. Actually, the triangle isn’t handled different than the rest of the slider in any way or form. It is just a visual indication of the current value.

  2. Could you please add all Denoise NLM module parameters to Denoise Profiled (NLM method) module.

  3. Thanks a lot for this new version. Could you please add Canon 5D Mark IV support in future release.

  4. Help me! I want return version darktable 2.0.5

    “AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G DX ED.

    Please write me only : sudo …..

    • Nicon D5100. Darktable 2.0.7 dont work with RAW files (with JPG files – good).

      failed to read camera white balance information from DSC_1111.NEF.

      I want instruction to return version darktable 2.0.5.

    • Return Darktable 2.0.5.
      Step by Step:
      1)Ununstall Ububntu
      2)Install Ubuntu
      3)Install Synaptic sudo apt-get install synaptic
      4)Search in Synaptic darktable.
      5)Install Darktable 2.0.5
      6)The End

    • Thanks, You are right the terminal says “[view_load_module] could not open /usr/lib/darktable/views/libmap.so (libosmgpsmap-1.0.so.1: impossibile aprire il file oggetto condiviso: File o directory non esistente)!
      [view_manager_init] failed to load view module ‘map’

    • It’s necessary to install the osm-gps-map package that is in the optonal dependencies and the map panel is ok.

  5. Can’t crop images if open one of more and other to long loading preview :(

  6. Hello

    the new version 2.0.7 does not read RAW files of my Nikon 8800 (NEF), too bad! Will there convert to DNG format?

  7. Thanks for all the work you put into this software. I’ve moved from the Windows world to Linux, replacing Lightroom in my digital photography work with Darktable, and it is the absolute bomb. I shoot with a K50 and I find it works perfect, if anything there are more adjustments in your software than in Adobe’s. Exports look flawless, and your watermarking tool is genius. Still can’t believe this is free software. When I’ve got some money saved up, you guys are getting a donation.

  8. @Aleksandr – this is wrong advice and it is very unethical to send newbies into wro ng direction – you should feel ashamed.

    It is absolutely not possible to uninstall and reinstall Ubuntu.

    maybe that was not a bad joke but you really do not know better, then however it is always better to not advice if you do not really know.

  9. I get this error when running 2.0.7 on Gnome 3.22:
    (darktable:22998): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: darktable.css:15:14: Using Pango syntax for the font: style property is deprecated; please use CSS syntax
    dt_gui_gtk_init: error parsing /usr/share/darktable/darktable.css: darktable.css:15:8not a number

    Had to edit /usr/share/darktable/darktable.css and make these changes:
    Line 15 changed to “font-family: Sans;”
    added a new line “font-size: 8px;”

    Now runs and GUI looks as it should

    • If that is a self compiled version of darktable you should make sure to clean your build/ directory and re-compile+install. The error you see is due to a change in GTK theming. While we ship themes for different GTK versions the one to be installed is determined when running cmake, so subsequent updates of GTK will result in the wrong theme being used.

  10. Hi guys, thanks for your continuing hard work and for such a great piece of software.
    Latest release 2.0.7 working great on OSX and Linux Mint with Nikon D7200 (14 bit raw) and D3300.

  11. Wow, just wow. I was coming from LightZone (great piece of software, don’t get me wrong) – but DarkTable is something else entirely. This is so quick, beautiful and FOSS! I love that things are locally stored (instead of lightroom and their database crud). I am so excited to edit photos with this tool :)

  12. The purpose of this comment is to support the development of the software in case I’m not the only one to have the (minor) issues listed below.

    I really love to use DT and I’m very grateful to the team of DT to maintain this software.

    I have surprisingly lost some functionnality since 2.0.0:

    For instance, in any version from 2.0.1 to 2.0.6, I couldn’t create multiple instance anymore.
    2.0.7 works again in this regard.

    What I still can’t do with 2.0.1 to 2.0.7 is to enter a number with keyboard after a right click to change the value of exposition (for example).
    I have realized that on 2.0.7, I have display issues as well (writing is kind on foggy in modules).

    For these reasons, I’m still using 2.0.0 which works well with my camera.

  13. Great piece of software. After using it for over a year (tried different software before), it’s my must-have app for photography.

    Didn’t find any donate link or button though.

  14. Can you help me please? I have a CANON 400D camera, I has make it 400++ and added ISO 2800 can you add reduce noise with this ISO?

    Thanks and regards
