Popular iPhone photo editing app Darkroom is today expanding to the iPad, marking the app’s biggest update since its fall 2017 launch.

Darkroom has been rebuilt from the ground up to add support for the iPad, which means there are app-wide refinements, improvements, and optimizations. The new interface works with all iOS devices in every orientation.

The app now supports Portrait, Portrait-Wide, and Landscape orientations on iOS devices, and it has been optimized to choose the best layout for each device and each size for a consistent editing experience.

On devices where Darkroom is used in landscape orientation, Albums are available at the top level of the library next to photos for quicker album access.

Also new to the landscape layout is a photo strip, making it easier to navigate through the photo library when editing. A long press on the photo strip will also bring up photo actions like copying edits, resetting edits, deleting photos, and more.


Darkroom for iPad is designed to take advantage of all of the iPad’s features, ranging from split-screen multitasking to keyboard shortcuts to the larger display.

Along with iPad support, the update also adds a color histogram for visualizing the colors present in an image and how the sliders are interacting with those colors, and there’s integration with the Moment Pro camera.

Other improvements include value labels on sliders, tweaks to filter strength adjustments, right to left language support, and undo and redo gestures.

Darkroom for iPad and iPhone can be downloaded from the App Store for free, but in-app purchases are required to unlock the full functionality. [Direct Link]
