The downloadable Darkroom Core Edition 9.2 Software from ExpressDigital is a popular and versatile computer software package for photographers. Features added and improvements made in this version include live view support for Nikon DSLR cameras, a built-in print driver, greater printer compatibility, a better greenscreen feature, and a Chroma Masking Tool. Additionally, you can now benefit from more marketing and online sales options and Windows 8.1 support. This is the activation version of the software, meaning activation is done via code and you do not need and will not receive a dongle (USB software protection key).
Notable features from version 9.1 and earlier editions include Instant-Print, the ability to hide photos in the Library and Presentation modes by rating, and an "E-mail this Photo" capability that includes publishing to Facebook, to name a few. Use and alter 200 pre-loaded templates to create calendars, mugs, mouse pads, and more. Or, create your own templates.
Advanced editing tools let you touch-up images, export them to media at a set resolution, and add watermarks to protect your images. Two display modes allow you to show images to individual customers or to groups at events. The software also turns your computer into an ordering kiosk and cash register, providing a convenient ordering solution for your customers.
Additions and Improvements in Edition 9.2
Updated and enhanced greenscreen with improved algorithm and Chroma Masking Tool, allowing you to change your background and use brushes of various sizes to select areas of the image to drop out or leave untouched. Large brushes help you cover large areas more quickly, while smaller ones aid in making fine adjustments. It's now simpler to select and refine greenscreen and masking options, as well
Built-in print driver for faster printing, easier setup, and less of a need for tech support. More compatible printers have been added, including Fuji DX100 and small format printers
Benefit from the convenience of software activation via code, as well as an instant download and the ability to start using the program right away. You do not need and will not receive a dongle (software protection key)
