I’m coming from Lightroom, but I’ve always been a light user, only editing some nice photos from time to time. But with the slow switch towards subscription based pricing I just can’t justify the price tag for me.
I’ve got a 2012 15" maxed out MacBook and a DesktopPC (Xeon 1230@3,6GHZ with a GTX1060). On the MacBook Darktable is just as slow as Lightroom, but sometimes very slowly responding.
On my desktop I’m triple booting MacOS, Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04. I have a new 32" 4K Display attached.
I downloaded the official DMG from darktable.org and on MacOS it’s really looking ugly, the fonts are way too big, and the UI is very slow. Channing the Basecurve for example takes a couple of seconds every time I change one cp. I managed to get OpenCL working, but that hasn’t improved the situation.
On Ubuntu, using the same 4K display, everything is fine. Darktable feels so much better than Lightroom here, great UI, fast and everything just amazes me :). It’s okay for me to boot into Ubuntu for Photo Editing, but have I missed something on MacOS? Anything to speed up the UI? Or make the fonts look better?
Just after posting this under suggested topics I found the solution for the big fonts.
