28 Dec Free Lightroom Alternative darktable Announces Latest Update: Comes to Windows for the First Time

Good news for Windows users: after an eight-year wait, darktable, the free Lightroom alternative for editing raw photos, is now available.

The open-source software can now be used on Windows, despite being Mac and Linux operable since as far back as 2009. The graphics editor is aimed at “non-destructive raw photo postproduction,” with a particular focus on handling a large number of images for a smoother workflow.

Making light of the delay, darktable took to their official website to exclaim: “Hell froze over.”

We finally ported darktable to Windows and intend to support it in the future. At the moment it’s still lacking a few features (for example there is no printing support), has a few limitations (tethering requires special drivers to be installed) and comes with its own set of bugs (TIFF import and export doesn’t support non-ASCII characters in file names). But overall we are confident that it’s quite usable already and hope you will enjoy it.

As well as being Windows-compatible for the first time, darktable’s latest version (2.4.0) brings with it updates, new features and bug fixes.

See the official announcement here, find the current darktable feature list here, and download darktable 2.4.0 on Github.
