Thank you for purchasing Darkroom Software - the best software to help you make more money with your Photo Business. To help you get started using the software, we have a variety of resources online including software downloads, tutorials, videos and a knowledge base.
Download the latest version of Darkroom Core or Pro
If you don't already have Darkroom Core or Pro installed on your computer, you will need to download and install it. The latest version is available to download here.
Activate your Software
If you purchased the activated version of Darkroom Core you received an 18 digit activation code via email. The code was on the invoice you received (PDF). When you first run Darkroom Core, it will prompt you for your 18 digit activation code. Activation requires brief internet access. You will also need internet access to de-activate Core in order to move your license to a different computer. Core is licensed to be run on one computer at a time.
If you purchased the dongle version of Darkroom Core or if you purchase Darkroom Pro you will need to plug the dongle into the USB port of the computer that you want to run the software on. If you do not have the dongle plugged into the computer then Darkroom will run in trial mode, you will not be able to import images or print. Please note that it is important to protect and insure your dongle, much like a piece of camera equipment. Darkroom Software cannot be responsible for lost or stolen dongles.
