    Like Gimp, DarkTable gets a lot of flack for its user interface, which some seem to find difficult. But while it has a bit more of a learning curve than, say, LightZone, it also has more tools & features. Personally, I like the DarkTable interface. It's extremely simple & logical once you learn it. And its feature set compares favorably to the spendy commercial apps like Lightroom & Aperture. Actually, I use several different photo editors because they all have somewhat different features. LightZone is the easiest to use for quick adjustments (I use it instead of Preview). Photivo is more complicated, but has useful selection masking tools. But overall, DarkTable has the best combination of features & ease of use. For a free professional photo editor, you really can't beat it.

    Stable, feature-full, nice interface, great linux support, open source. What else could we wish for? Congratulations and big thanks to the devs to offer this wonderful package.

    While DT (using 1.4 now) is a capable Raw processor, its cryptic interface makes it hard to use. Lacks a good export module and you cannot print from it. It also lacks a proper top menu (I'm using the Ubuntu version) so you are forced to quit by clicking the (X) button of the window. Along the same concept, Photivo is much easier and feature laden. I had "high expectations" about DT but the developer seem to have lost momentum and bearing.

    I love this software, it is extremely powerful and the design is just perfect. I have processed hundreds of pictures and it has crashed maybe once or twice in a year without loosing any work or corrupting file : a reliable software (I suspect the crash were due to lack of memory). Now I have a new computer with a graphic card with 2 GB, the experience is much smoother and faster than with my laptop with integrated graphics. Thanks to the developers for such a fantastic software !
