I am actually in the deep sleep mode Darktable 2.2.0 with many interesting new features [Full Guide]

, but the new Darktable 2.2.0 features are just too good. You can dine well during the holidays and the preparations for the new year not just under the table. Who likes to take pictures (RAW keyword), who will not want Linux Darktable. Even before the update, there were many useful functions in the digital darkroom, can improve photos.

new in Darktable 2.2.0

version number actually not so great looks. The new features are already very interesting.

there are for example the new perspective correction. The module does exactly what you probably assume. Thus, the perspective in an image can be adapted. Automatic finding of structures is interesting above all. The developers describe the new module in detail in this English article . Where a House is bent and apparently correctly.

the color code for the lines you will also find in the link above provided. This is a very nice module, because every photographer knows the problem with the buildings and buildings that suddenly, are wrong.

just as interesting is the new tool liquify.  Also for this new engine there is a detailed article English . You can also just a bit to experiment and will quickly find use cases for this. For example, it could thus become less a nose and so on. This can be done with GIMP, but so small changes directly in Darktable can be performed and the workflow or development process will not be interrupted.

there is also a new indicator of overexposed areas ( article ), a new module for color manipulation, and so on.

additional new features

the database was divided into a library with all the pictures and a general information preferences, styles and tags. Then there is no support for Darktable also-x 86 platforms, but only ARM64. This video shows PI 3 touch screen with Darktable a raspberry. While one can debate how much fun PI is RAW development on a raspberry…

there are also an import and export filters for Lightroom keyword files. You will find all changes and innovations in the official announcement . There are also a few changes in the dependencies and the support for Mac OS X 10.6 is set.
