Darktable homepage: https://www.darktable.org/
Background info: https://www.darktable.org/2015/07/why-d ... ows-build/

Unofficial Windows builds: http://www.partha.com/ (Not Portable) (other good stuff on there too)

This program is somewhat comparable to RawTherapee & Photivo with its comprehensive feature list, modular workflow and dark interface.

    darktable is an open source photography workflow application and RAW developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.

That looks really sharp. It's amazing how many solid, open tools there are in this category.

(Moving to non-portable freeware forum.)

    Agreed. Darktable is highly regarded in the Linux sphere, even by pros... 8)

Update on this:

Partha has stopped building Darktable after v2.0 (see 2nd post from top on partha.com). He didn't state why, however it seems to stem from the apparent hostility of the darktable devs (more info).

Anyway, it's quite sad ...

The good news is that Partha has made the Windows source code along with build instructions available on Github.

Topic update: just noting that a while ago Darktable devs stated their reasons for not providing a Windows build (see http://www.darktable.org/2015/07/why-dont-you-provide-a-windows-build/)...

BTW, the latest Darktable release is v2.2.5, dated 2017-07-01 (changelog at http://www.darktable.org/2017/06/darktable-2-2-5-released/).

A couple of months back, Darktable devs apparently droped their aversion for a Windows release: http://www.darktable.org/2017/08/darktable-for-windows/... :mrgreen:

Latest unstable v2.3.0 Windows build (64-bit only) is available from https://discuss.pixls.us/t/darktable-for-windows/4966/192.

Let's just hope someone takes the extra step of making it portable. :idea:

BTW, the last Darktable stable version remains the same I posted above.
