  1. Will the Mac .dmg be made available soon?
  2. You folks Rock, Thank You!
  3. Keep up the great work.

    It's always nice to see my favourite RAW editor getting even better.

    I love the quality of your work. DarkTable is, according to me, the best solution for photograph enthousiasts. Thanks you all !!!
  5. After Update to darktable (1:2.0.1-0pmjdebruijn1~trusty) to 1:2.0.2-0pmjdebruijn1~trusty
    it doesn't work. Darktable freez when I open some pictures.
    With Version 1:2.0.1 it was all fine
  6. just GREAT, thank you very much indeed!
  7. DMG has been uploaded.

    I am a photographer, not a programmer I want to install the 2.x.x on my Linuxmint 17.3 computer, is there a Deb version out there? I can use?
  9. Why won't you acknowledge Partha Bagchi work on the Windows port?
  10. Because we won't support it and it's completely unofficial. Please read http://www.darktable.org/2015/07/why-dont-you-provide-a-windows-build/
  11. Yes, but you could still acknowledge it.

    Like a link on the download page, thanking him for the port,
    and stating clearly that it is unsupported by the Darktable team
    and completely unofficial.
  12. Thank you very much! It´s great to have an alternative to Adobe. This gives me a much better feeling while working with my images. Thanks again!
  13. I think the deb for darktable in the repositories is the old version.
    To get 2.0.X You have to add another repository using the terminal:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pmjdebruijn/darktable-release
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

  14. Hi to all!

    Anyone can help me with this?

    I recently installed Dark Table and I want to migrate my collections from Adobe Lightroom... I found some old post, but I want to know if it is a good way now and where I can learn it.

    Thank you.
  15. I dont know much about programming.I want to install darktable in my windows 10 pc..I use canon cameras.Can I install it?
  16. No. Windows is not supported. Only different kinds of Unix.
  17. OK! I think I got it!

    "Specify where to write metadata changes

    Lightroom automatically writes adjustments and settings metadata to the catalog. You can also instruct Lightroom to write the changes to XMP. In order for changes made in Lightroom to be recognized by other applications, metadata must be written to XMP.

    Choose Edit > Catalog Settings (Windows) or Lightroom > Catalog Settings (Mac OS).
    Click the Metadata tab, and then do either of the following:

    To write adjustments and settings metadata to XMP, select Automatically Write Changes Into XMP.

    To write adjustments and settings metadata only to the catalog, deselect Automatically Write Changes Into XMP.

    If you don’t write adjustments and settings metadata to XMP automatically, you can select a file and choose Metadata > Save Metadata To File."

    from here:


    So I think I'll be able to start using DarkTable soon...

  18. Windows is not officially supported, but there are Windows versions of Darktable around that you can use. They are not made by the Darktable team, so don't report bugs on it, use at your own risk.

    1. I am using the Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon. My graphics display is cropped on the right edge. I tried to change the display size and pixels but without effect. Is there a setting to use or should I change my monitor for another with a different aspect ratio?

    2. Where can I find a glossary of terms used in Darktable?

    3. Will there be a help file other than forums and user manual? I would like someone to walk me through the processing of an image from RAW file to jpeg.
  20. Josh Tobert on Mon Mar 28 18:08:23 2016:
    Any chance of seeing Darktable AppImages in the near future? Sure would be better than relying on outdated repos.
  21. ad 1: What language are you using darktable in? Some translations have rather long strings and thus push the minimal screen size a bit.
  22. darktable doesn't plan to offer anything like that. Actually we don't even provide compiled binaries to install. That's the job of distributions' packagers.
    So if you want something like an AppImage (I actually had to google that first – do people really like using a bloaty thing like that instead of a properly packaged install for their system?) you have to do it yourself.
