Facebook Fans Win

We understand that this really is not a DARKROOM tip, but this is to your advantage nonetheless. As we mentioned last month, when DARKROOM became its own independent organization last year, we did not inherit any of the social network pages. Slowly but surely; we have rebuilt this newsletter, the YouTube Channel and our Twitter feed.

To add to those successes, just yesterday, DARKROOM Software published the Facebook Fan page and we would like you to "Like Us." How is this to your advantage you ask? Well, if you were a fan of the DARKROOM Facebook page last year, you'd know. Each month we would give away special prizes and help you promote your photography. This new incarnation will be the same and more! To kick us off, as soon as we hit 75 "friends", we will have a drawing for a free upgrade to Version 9.1! What are you waiting for!?! Click here!

Since day one of our ownership of DARKROOM, it has been our mission to improve and instill a top-notch support system for the software. We believe we have succeeded by offering a support hotline and a beefed-up support staff and system -- to many accolades. To continue these strides, we are pleased to introduce you to Stuart Morely, president of System Insight, DARKROOM's new support and supplying partner based in the United Kingdom.

According to their press release announcing the partnership, they are just as excited as we are:

With a solid product like DARKROOM, System Insight are able to provide our customers with not only a first class product but with the usual high levels of service that our customers are used to. SI recognizes that DARKROOM is the professional's choice for a comprehensive one stop solution which suits a wide range of photographers in today's market and allows them to maximize profits by streamlining their workflow.
With so much excitement, we decided to ask them a couple of questions about what DARKROOM means 'across the pond'.
DARKROOM: We understand there is some enthusiasm for better support and sales of DARKROOM in the United Kingdom and Europe. Can you tell us if there is any particular reason you've found?
STUART: Good products need good support. With every product you need to know how to get the best out of it and DARKROOM is no exception. With the correct support and training, users can ensure that DARKROOM solves the majority of their problems quickly and easily. What we've seen in England is that there is a huge familiarity with DARKROOM and an understanding that the software will solve most, if not all workflow problems, but, just like what Apple is doing here, even the most intuitive products need good support. I don't know if that is unique to Europe or software, but it's the truth.
