    Popular iOS photography app Darkroom received a major update today, introducing a long list of app-wide improvements, a new Frames tool, a premium filter pack, and more.

    The new Frames tool, which marks Darkroom's first top-level tool addition in three years, offers up content-aware frame colors. Content-aware color allows the frames tool to analyze the colors in your photograph and generate a set of frame colors that will match your image.

    Support has also been added for the 9:16 aspect ratio for Snapchat and Instagram stories, as well as 4:5 for Instagram portrait photos. 2:1 has also been included, and all of the frame aspects can be used when exporting a single image or multiple images.

    Also included in today's update is a new premium filter pack, Duotone Filters. Darkroom says these filters are designed to be "extremely graphical and punchy," to make photos "feel like they popped right out of a magazine."

    New privacy tools have been added to allow users to enable or disable embedded location information when exporting photos. The option will let location be included on your phone for captured photos, but it gives users the ability to strip it out when publicly sharing photos.

    In addition to these new features, the new version of Darkroom includes app-wide refinements that make the Darkroom editing experience on iOS better. Specifically, "drastic improvements" have been made to how Darkroom handles photos that were previously edited in other apps, with the ability to "gracefully overwrite them."

    A full list of changes and updates in Darkroom can be found on the Darkroom website. The Darkroom app can be downloaded from the App Store for free, but unlocking full functionality requires a $7.99 in-app purchase. [Direct Link]

    Played with the content-aware frames this morning, they're great. :D They do change slightly from picture to picture in the same series of shots though. Still cool that they change as you're making edits.

    This is my go-to for quick edits. For more involved jobs, Pixelmator Pro. Both are excellent apps.

    I don’t think I’ve used any editing app, paid or otherwise, that is as good as Snapseed, and it’s free.

    The only gripe I ever had with Snapseed was it took them a very long time to update for iPhone X screens, but even that’s fixed now.

    If Darkroom can just add denoise, there really won't be a reason for me to use any other app.
