Since 2021, the Crossover software that allows the installation of Windows applications on a Mac computer is experiencing a lot of stability issues. Unfortunately, their team is not able to guarantee 100% compatibility of Darkroom with their software on all Mac computers. 

If you have a Windows computer, we strongly recommend that you use it to develop your photos. 

You can also discover our mobile app Exposio Real Estate Camera as well as the Canon SL3 camera which allows you to stop using the Darkroom.

For Mac, a third party application is required that is called Crossover. There is a cost associated with this but we will give you the exact same amount in Exposio credits.

The $59.95 USD license is sufficient to run Dakroom. 

However, if a new operating system from Apple is available and Crossover requires an upgrade, a new license will have to be purchased.
