Following on from the release of Apple’s new iOS 13 mobile operating system and iPadOS the developer team responsible for the excellent Darkroom photo editing app have rolled out a new update bringing with it a wealth of new features, enhancements and improvements. The latest Darkroom app update adds Light Mode, Multiple Spaces, Shortcut Action, Sound Effects and more. “ Darkroom holds the mantle of the most deeply integrated photo editor, and with today’s release, we are pushing the latest iOS features to their limits.”
Majd Taby explains more about the new Darkroom app update and what you can expect from its features. “With the release of iPadOS, the iPad is no longer bound by the constraints of the iPhone. We wanted to ensure that the same applied to Darkroom. That’s why we invested heavily in the latest features of iPadOS to bring you an unparalleled, pro-level editing experience by supporting Spaces. The new Split View and Slide Over modes unlock a whole new set of editing possibilities. Letting you work exactly how you want in even more intuitive ways. ”
“Darkroom’s new Light Mode brightens up and freshens your photo editing experience. We carefully reviewed every button and slider to make everything feel natural. You’ll notice that the sliders have a fresher, more dynamic look to match the new mode. We also added a lighter option for the App Icon! Head to settings for the little surprise. Beyond the aesthetics however, Light Mode provides an important function. The environment that you view your photos in influences your perception of those photos. In the context of Darkroom, we don’t know where you will edit or consume your photos, so a dark gray is a safe neutral background. However, often the consumption spaces today are bright (Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, etc). If you mostly share to social apps, it makes sense for your editing environment to reflect and match your consumption environment.”
“iOS 13 expands the range of Siri’s third-party capabilities. This opened the door for us to build the Shortcut we’ve been dreaming about for a long time. With the new Darkroom Siri Shortcut Action you will be able to import images from anywhere, filter and frame them, and prepare them for export in Darkroom. There’s simply no parallel for this level of efficiency and automation.”
