Easy yet powerful RAW photo editor
- Tabbed interface: browser, process and layout
- Easier to use than other RAW editors
- Support for many RAW formats
- Nice extra features
- Not as full featured as other similar tools
- Sliders require great accuracy
RAW formats have evolved from being a professional-only feature to being supported by most digital cameras nowadays. The only problem is that they need specific image editors, capable of working with large-sized images and offer special editing tools.
One of these editors is ArcSoft PhotoStudio Darkroom. Unlike similar applications, ArcSoft PhotoStudio Darkroom features a quite simple interface that even newcomers will find easy to use. The working area is divided into three sections: Browser (a standard file manager), Layout (a printing preview utility) and Process, which is the program's main editing area.
When working on a RAW photo with ArcSoft PhotoStudio Darkroom, you'll see all the editing tools on the right sidebar: White balance, Exposure, Tone, Curves and levels, Color affect, and many more. Most of them are simply sliders you need to adjust in order to modify the picture – easy, but requires steady hands.
ArcSoft PhotoStudio Darkroom supports all popular RAW formats and also includes handy extra features such as a red-eye removal tool and a face beautifier.
