DarkTable version 1.0 - first stable release ~ Space Free Software

March 16, 2012 – 00:00

Developers Darktable (program similar to Adobe Lightroom) just released version 1.0 of the software non-destructive editing of photography for GNU / Linux. Darktable 1.0 is therefore the first stable release after years of development to bring the application very well structured and adding several new tools for image processing. And the application is open source!

The new Darktable 1.0 adds support for several new cameras (Leica M9, NX100/NX5/NX10/NX11, Panasonic DMC-GX1, Kr Pentax, Canon PowerShot S100, Olympus XZ-1, Olympus E-P3, Sony DSLR A330, Sony NEX -5N, Canon EOS 1000D, Canon EOS 600D, Sony Alpha 390) and adds new modules dedicated to the shadows and tone curves. Memory management has also improved, thereby improving application performance and loading of large images.

But what is even Lightroom?

It is a software created by Adobe that aims to quickly edit and store digital photos. It allows the user to import a large amount of photos automatically from a camera or memory card and can organize them into folders and making various adjustments. Also allows you to save settings for future work.

é livre! And DarkTable has the same proposal, with one major difference: it's free!

To install DarkTable on your Ubuntu, just open a terminal and run the following commands:

$ Sudo add-apt-repository ppa: pmjdebruijn / darktable-release

$ Sudo aptitude update

$ Sudo aptitude install darktable

Any camera software or print should work.

If you have a digital camera or photo printer the software that came with them should have a photo editor. If you don't download one from a cameras or printer manufacturers website. They are free and normally the only thing you need to open the full versions all the way up are the serial number of a memory card. I know Olympus and Epson have decent ones but you can pick any brand you want. HP has their ImageZone and I'd say Fuji and Pentax will have some good ones to.

  • Avatar trouter What is a good DSLR camera for a novice photographer, which isn't that expensive?
    Sep 26, 2009 by trouter | Posted in Cameras

    I am looking to buy a digital SLR camera for around £350 (max £400). Can anybody recommend any particular models, and perhaps a good online store in the UK for cameras and their related accessories. The camera should ideally have a pop up flash on the top, and come with at least a standard lens.


    • For your budget I would recommend Canon EOS 1000D, 7-point wide-area AF system, Up to 3 frames per second continuous shooting.It is easy to use and provide good picture quality
      for $350 you can get Sony Alpha A230L

    Hi, I am looking for a digital camera to take clear, close up photos of birds and animals along the river bank. I am prepared to spend money to get a really good camera, but am new to digital so all advise greatly appreciated. Thanks

    • I have recently bought a Leica V lux 1. It cost £490.00 including a £100.00 discount for any camera swopped. I can honestly say that it takes FANTASTIC photos of everything. I took some really good pics of the recent moon eclipse. It zooms from 35mm to 420mm (about 12 x) optically. I have a range of cameras including Canons and Olympus and the Leica Vlux is the tops!.
