Unless Gimp released something new, they are still fumbling with 32bit floating point/channel with a few ugly to use plug-ins. After applying several effects recursively on subtle photos, I see no digital fringing coming out of the editing with Darkroom because of the native 32bit floating point for each channel. Compare to Gimps use of 32bit integers, this package really works and won't cause image self destruction in editing!
Also it appears (only after a few hours use) to be an easier work flow to set up and process a bunch of photos through rather than the stiffer GImp.
Would love to see HDR plug-ins, maybe they have some, and the 4c32bit-fp will make a big difference
in extended processing of 10 images down to one super range output worth spending $25 to have printed!
Thanks for tipping us off on this one Jack, but you didn't mention the most important 4x32bit-fp issue!
Gimp has its place, Darktable will have it's place.....
In my album, this is what I've been waiting for!
