Explore What’s New in Darktable 4.8: The Latest Open-Source RAW Image Editor Release

Darktable 4.8 open-source raw image editor has been released today as a major update introducing new features, improvements, and enhanced camera support.

Highlights of Darktable 4.8 include a new color equalizer module to control hue, lightness, and saturation based on colors, two new modules to support image composition, namely Enlarge Canvas and Overlay, as well as a new toggle for switching the darkroom mode, which forces the pixel-pipe processing to use the whole image data rather than the displayed area.

This release also adds support for DNG files requiring the CameraCalibration tags for correct white balancing, a dashed outline of the currently selected area in the print view, support for importing images in-place in a GVFs mount on Linux, and support for CMYK-profiled histogram.

It also adds more collection types and filters for flash, white balance, exposure program, metering mode, and image grouping, introduces mask blending support to the highlights reconstruction module, adds more EXIF fields to the image information module, and adds support for restoring snapshots as the new history.

As expected from a new Darktable release, camera support has been enhanced. Darktable 4.8 introduces support for Canon EOS R100, Canon EOS R50, Canon EOS R6 Mark II, Canon EOS R8, Canon EOS Ra, Fujifilm FinePix S9600fd, Fujifilm X100VI (compressed), GoPro FUSION (DNG), Leica SL3 (DNG), OM System OM-1 Mark II, Panasonic DC-TZ95D (4:3), Panasonic DMC-FX150 (4:3, 3:2, 16:9), Panasonic DMC-FZ28 (3:2), Phase One P25, Phase One P45+, Ricoh GR III HDF (DNG), Ricoh GR IIIx HDF (DNG), Sony ILCE-9M3, and Sony UMC-R10C cameras.

On top of that, there are new white balance presents for the Canon EOS R6 Mark II, Fujifilm X-H2, OM System OM-1 Mark II, and OM System OM-5 cameras, as well as new noise profiles for the Canon EOS R6 Mark II, Fujifilm GFX 50R, OM System OM-1 Mark II, OM System OM-5, Phase One IQ180, Sony ILCE-9M3, and Sony ZV-1 cameras.

Many bugs were squashed from the Darktable 4.6 release, so read the release notes on the project’s GitHub page for all the technical details. Darktable 4.8 is available for download from the official website for all supported platforms, including GNU/Linux. Darktable is also available as a Flatpak app from Flathub.
