What's New

Version 3.4

New Filters: Instant Filters!

We're thrilled to share a whole new set of premium filters for you. Instant filters emulate the nostalgic look of classic instant Polaroid Film with their faded colors and crushed shadows. Perfect for the night-out photos or the backyard bbq photos.

Note: If you've already purchased the "All Filters" bundle, you'll get these new filters for free. Otherwise, you can still purchase the bundle at the same price, it's just a better deal!

Go ahead and give them a try for free and pair them with a border, they love to have some space around them :)

Other Changes:
• Now when you export an image using "Modify Original", you'll see an "Exported" icon in the top right. It won't show for images saved as copies.
• The badges now load differently, and will appear with a fade but will be more robust. We will continue to work on improving this important part of the experience.
• Fixed a bug when batch selecting photos, where some multi-selection checkmarks could not be selected.
• Adjusted the mechanics of the library interface hiding to feel less distracting.
• Redesigned the app on-boarding experience to be as fast as possible.

Editors’ Notes

You don’t need lots of time or pro skills to make the most of this ultra-fast, super-intuitive photo editor. Darkroom can access your whole photo library at once, letting you immediately start cropping, adjusting curves, and using preset filters or creating your own—until your pics are exactly how you want them.

My favorite editor.


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?

Developer Response

Thank you so much for you extremely nuanced and thoughtful review!! Your suggestions are on our roadmap.

Excellent App!


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 😊
