Open source Lightroom alternative Dark Table 2.0 released




The developers of open source raw-image editing program Dark Table have released version 2.0 of the application. Dark Table 2.0 is available for OS X and Linux and now uses gtk + 3 instead of gtk + 2.

The previous stable version wore version 1.6 and the end of 2014 saw the light of day. Dark Table works like other photo development programs called sidecar files which pictures are edited non-destructively. Because there are significant changes made between versions 1.6 and 2.0, it is possible to open 1.6-xmp files in Dark Table 2.0, but does not allow files edited in 2.0 to be used in older versions.

The main change with previous versions of the port to gtk gtk + 2 + 3, though that is not directly visible from the outside because Dark Table uses its own interface. The difference is visible to users with high-resolution screens. A more notable addition is the print module, making it now possible to print directly via cups from Dark Table, together with print simulation of the specific printer on the screen. With the ability to print directly, the option to export to pdf.

Like the gtk-change is also a new way to cache thumbnails are not immediately visible, but it has to provide improved stability and speed. However, the addition of the visible feature is to add a watermark. The entire list of changes can be found on the GitHub page of the project.
