Hi all,

I got an interview today with a studio company. I'm comfortable with photoshop, but the manager told me they are using Darkroom for photo editing because it is more simple to use.

I have an second interview tomorrow but can anyone please tell me where to download a trial version of "Darkroom"? There seem to be some softwares with the same name so I don't know which one is the correct one.

Thanks very much.

Just my 2p's worth, if they are a pro studio (so to speak) then I surmise it could be this one http://www.expressdigi​tal.com/products/epsda​rkroom.shtm (external link) having said that without them specifying it to you any suggestions would be speculation as only "they" know & can tell you exactly the source of their "Darkroom".

Not a lot of help but heh you did ask :D


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

I would agree with BB above that the software they are using. That software is more of total workflow solution. It's own editing functions are very basic from what I can see. In the video demo they provide a link to Photoshop to do more advanced editing.

I did a Google search and can't find any sort of robust editing application called Darkroom beyond the above.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I noticed that the first feature mentioned at the "Darkroom" site is processing green screen shots.

I'm guessing of course, but if the OP is going to work for a chain studio company, this would make sense.

I use the Darkroom and yes it is limited in some of the special features you can do in Photoshop but I have to say it is a decent software and if they are using it while printing it is really hard too beat. i use it with my Shinko and it works great but I try my best to nail the exposure in the camera and not in the software. It does have a cool focus feature that has impressed me, the software is big with Labs as well. I have used it to create a lot of templates
