Context: the team is very excited to work on this, that being being said it’s going to take us a considerable amount of time to research and develop in order to do it well.

Just purchased a full unlocked subscription not realizing Darkroom doesn’t have this basic simple feature .🤦🏽‍♀️ My fault for assuming this, but almost every single editor (even free ones) have a way to do spot touch-ups.

This should be an absolute rushed priority update as it’s a key feature (especially for women) to have.

I could fully leave Adobe products behind with even the simplest spot removal tool. Sadly I’m still reliant on their products for removing even the tiniest blemish on a photo for the time being.

Hmm, 2 years later and this feature still doesn’t exist? The only thing keeping me from buying the app.

I used to really, truly believe in Darkroom and still to this day love their color science and approach to image structure manipulation—it still feels the most organic of all the editors I’ve ever tried. But the lack of even basic features that should have been in a 1.0 release and a year of notbing but frivolous updates when such major, basic, essential tools are still missing in a 6.x release has forced me to go back to Lightroom. I’m not at all thrilled with Adobe subscription prices and cloud model, but there’s just some basic functionality that a modern editor needs.

Photomator leap-frogged over Darkroom in the past year and has a better UI and toolset than even Lightroom, but their color handling just looks way too flat and muddled (not to mention ballooning sidecar files that can cause you to need to buy even more iCloud storage). Darkroom really nailed it in these particular departments, but continues to be heartbreakingly and so unnecessarily hamstrung by the lack of basic 1.0 features, made even worse by the apparent prioritization of frivolous things like buttons to third party camera apps.

Left-handed people will never be more than a small percentage of the population, so this points-based voting system will never allow for the request for a left-handed UI to come up to the top. But again, this is a BASIC accessibility issue and all other major editing apps have done this since their initial releases. The fact that Darkroom still lacks this in a 6.x release, with no hope that it will be implemented any time soon, make this a complete non-starter for me as left-handler. I literally can’t use it on the iPad. And other apps just do this out of the box.

Darkroom, I loved you, but I just couldn’t wait any longer. PLEASE get your priorities straight. You have such a great core engine, but you’re needlessly losing customers for lack of basic features. Spot removal (it doesn’t even have to be AI), noise reduction (again, it doesn’t even have to be AI), manual-entry control values, white balance picker, import/export profiles (not presets), and left-handed UI are glaring omissions that prevent serious real-world usage. This has driven me back to the Big A—and I have since already gotten entangled and entrapped back into their ecosystem so switching back will be extremely difficult—but maybe it’s not too late for other users. Please, please, please, for your own sake, stop wasting time with frivolous features like third party app buttons and presets and implement the bare minimum basics.

Same. Also what about left-handed? I’m lefty and Darkroom is FINE. Just add the retouch option!

I’m currently trying out Darkroom, it’s great with color grading, but I couldn’t believe that there’s no repair tool included. I’ll leave it installed and see what the updates bring. Then I buy Premium but like, that’s a bad joke.

Do we have any idea when this may be available? Jasper Hauser above said “it’s going to take us a considerable amount of time to research and develop in order to do it well.” I’m wondering how long that may be? Like another user above, I bought the app before I realized this feature was missing.
