We just released our first upgrade to Darkroom, and it’s packed with lots of improvements, performance tweaks and bug fixes — most of them based on your helpful feedback (thank you!).

Here’s a rundown of what’s new:

Zoom

Image zoom

Our #1 most requested feature! Now you can double tap or pinch an image to quickly zoom in and out.

Free Crop

Free Crop

When you’re cropping an image, tap “Free” to custom crop it any way you like. We’ve also added support for 16:9 ratio presets.

Our Curves tool gives you all the power of Darkroom, and if you haven’t picked it up yet, you should (it’s just $1.99 this week). Check out this super short video to see how it works:

Improvements and fixes

Finally, we’ve added a bunch of refinements to make Darkroom smoother and faster:

  • Double-Tapping on the slider labels in the Basic Adjustments tool now resets the slider to zero

Thanks so much to all of you who have downloaded and given us feedback about Darkroom! Your support means a lot to us, and we’ll be sure to update you as we make changes to our product.
