Re: Bug fix release 22-Feb-2019

Advanced Sharpen: added button to display difference between input image and preview image.

It is very usefull to better locate the bluring and sharpening effects on both edges and smooth areas especially when they are not much pronounced. Much appreciated, thanks.

A cosmetic one

If you set the Expand Histograms in default Curve options to Yes, the histograms show expanded but the toggle button is not in the pushed down position.
When you need to switch to non-expanded view, you need to click the toggle button twice as the first click just pushes the button down.

Re: PWP7 posterize settings not compatible with PWP8

I compared contents of both files and yes, it would not be worth it. However, there is still a bit easier or faster way. It just needs to open the PWP 7 .posterize file in Notepad (or a similar text editor) and transcribe the decimal values to the PWP 8 Color picker. They will get saved as hex numbe...

PWP7 posterize settings not compatible with PWP8

PWP7 Posterize settings cannot be loaded into PWP8 posterize dialog:
...- commmand line starts with wrong command: Poster

Is there a way to manually edit the PWP7 settings file so as to be accepted by PWP8?

Re: A Level issue at 45 degrees off the vertical or horizontal direction

2848 x 4288 px, 48-bit Color

I did some resizing and found the crash begins at about 2400 x 3600.
When croped it happens at about a square format 2848 x 2800

A Level issue at 45 degrees off the vertical or horizontal direction

When you drag the overlay line to its maximum allowed angle 45 degrees off the vertical or horizontal direction and release the mouse button, PWP crashes.

Frame Inner Mat Scale Factor value is wrong

Frame Inner Mat Scale Factor remembers the new slider position but it takes the numerical value from the Outer Mat Scale Factor. 1. Move the Inner Mat Scale Factor away from its default of 1.0 2. Leave the Outer Mat Scale Factor at 1.0 or move it elsewhere but different from the Inner Mat Scale Fact...

I have rediscovered a forgotten interesting article about printing and (extreme) scaling, here: https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1715/how-do-i-generate-high-quality-prints-with-an-ink-jet-printer The described "simple trick" of the stepped bicubic scaling has provoked an idea whether it cou...
