Hello Linux Geeksters. Darktable Description, from the official site: Darktable is an open source 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. It is released under the GNU General Public Licence and works for Linux, OS X and Solaris.

The latest version available is Darktable 1.6, which has been released a while ago, coming with a lot of changes:

  • high DPI monitor support
  • map view now allows to only show images from the current collection on the map
  • slideshow
  • darktable-cli now works without a running X server for use on headless systems
  • support for audio notes playback
  • sticky preview
  • added the option to overwrite files when exporting to disk
  • crawler that syncs all xmp files on start
  • support huge images (> 32 bit pixel index). darktable can open 26770×13385 TIFFs and should in theory be able to process arbitrary
  • sized images. don’t try this on a 32 bit system though!
  • lens iop presets are copy/pastable between different images
