Can anyone recommend the photo editing program Darktable? I was about to install it, but had to agree to it (possibly?) making changes to the device. What type of changes would this app make? Is it reliable? I’d like to have an editor that can automatically add a watermark, so I don’t have to make it, one photo at a time on Picfont!lol
And I’d like something free, too.😊

If the computer is asking for permission to make changes to the device that tells me you are probably using Windows 10 or above. That is a feature built into Windows security and it will ask that for any program you install from the internet. Darktable is safe and is reliable. I have been using Darktable for the bulk of my editing work for quite a few years now, and I use it to edit hundreds of photos per week.
Darktable has the option to add watermarks, as well as a lot of other features. It is basically a free alternative to Lighroom, and just like Lighroom there are a lot of features, including mutiple ways of doing colour correction, cropping, retouching, etc, which means it will take a while to get used to.August 5, 2022 at 8:05 am #71698William FrazerParticipant
Hi @laura-aome ,
If you do choose to install darktable, I’d recommend their online user manual. As @dfrazer mentioned, it has a steep learning curve, (like any good professional-grade software), so that manual can really be handy.
And if you have any questions about it, we’ll be happy to help you out!
And to answer the original question, yes, I’d highly recommend it.
