Darktable for Mac
Designed to be a virtual light table for photographers, the Darktable Mac OS X application proposes a well structured environment where you can store and browse your digital negatives in an organized manner.
Furthermore, Darktable also offers you the possibility to import RAW images and enhance their quality by adjusting the contrast, the brightness, or the saturation, changing the output color profile, and so on.
Easy to install image processor that can work with digital negatives
Darktable is able to import and process different image file formats, including RAW and High Dynamic Range pictures. At the same time, the exporting capabilities are even more varied: you can create Picasa, Flickr, Facebook albums, you can upload the photos to your Google+ account, or you can generate a LaTeX book template.
The Darktable application comes with a stylish user interface that allows you to quickly switch between different panels with a simple mouse click: you can preview images in the zoomable “lighttable” area, you get to analyze and adjust different parameters in the “darkroom” tab, or you can connect directly to the camera if the device has tethering support.
Furthermore, Darktable also offers you the possibility to preview your image collections in slideshow mode. Darktable can easily import specific files, or entire folders, and you have the option to effortlessly visualize the available information about each item, edit the associated metadata, tag or geotag any image.
User friendly image processor for editing and enhancing RAW images
Darktable integrate basic image processing capabilities such as crop and rotate, exposure controls, color balancing, tone mapping, color correction, and much more. In addition, Darktable includes a collection of image effects that can help you give a specific look to your picture.
All in all, if you are looking for an image editor that can handle fundamental tasks when it comes to photo processing, but also incorporates more complex functions, such as metadata editing or geotagging, Darktable certainly deserves a try.
