This documentation is derived from darktable 4.0 user manual and further developed under the Ansel project, where comments, suggestions and corrections can be made. It is released under the GPL 3.0 license.
Darkroom modules that have been deprecated in either Ansel or darktable 4.0 are not documented here and can be found on darktable user manual.
Note“Deprecated module” means the GUI widget of the module is hidden from the software interface as to decourage users from using it in new edits. The pixel processing filters for deprecated modules are still in the software and the GUI will show the widgets of the deprecated modules for any old edit using them. This ensures compatibility of old edits since Darktable 1.0 at least.
The goal of this documentation is to explain the effect and use cases of the features and settings existing in the software. The opposite approach, explaining what features are useful to achieve a certain goal, is provided in the workflows section.
