Re: Transparency

Jonathan, that sounds like just what I need. Today, I'll read the white paper you referenced. Didn't get to it yesterday as I attended a pot luck dinner and then watched my alma mater destroy Notre Dame. The only other time I used the Composite transform, I had done something like tone mapping an im...

Re: Transparency

Thank your Jonathan. I'll check out the white paper. I know how to use masks on the target image to insure that a clone is applied only to a selected area. But in this situation it is the source image (the image from which the cloned item is coming) from which I only want a selected portion to be tr...

Transparency

Is there a way in PWP 7 to make a portion of an image transparent? Without going into detail of the exact situation, I want to render as transparent, just a selective portion of an image (through the use of a mask) so that if the result is cloned onto an actual photo, the underlying image will show ...

Re: Cloning from one image to another

I use image-to-image cloning in a different manner. For noise reduction I use dedicated noise reduction software other than PWP. Because noise reduction has the side effect of softening the image and there are some areas where noise is not particularly distracting, I may clone from the noise-adjuste...

Re: Thumbnail image in jpeg

by jsachs » September 24th, 2019, 9:18 am None of the other formats have thumbnails either. It's a lot of work to add thumbnails and not high on my priority list. If it's a deal killer for you, then stop using Picture Window and whining about it. One more abusive post and you will be banned from th...

Re: Associating image file formats during installation

I am confused about the effect of these selections. I am pretty sure they do NOT dictate that, as a system-wide default, whenever a file of that type is clicked on (something embedded in an email, for example), PWP is automatically launched and the file is opened therein. For example, I use FastSton...

Re: print

Jonathan .... What you suggested is exactly what I do when printing at Costco. Here's a little more FYI. I print most of my images at what you called "full bleed" (Costco calls it borderless). However, I learned that because they can't guarantee the registration of the paper with the print head, the...

Re: Transformations question: Apply vs Ok

Thanks, Jonathan.
I don't know when I will pull the trigger on moving to PWP 8. But this is a good reminder to (as they say) RTFM. And your user manuals and guides are among the best. For example, the background info in your DoF program exceeds anything I have seen for similar applications.

Re: Transformations question: Apply vs Ok

I have not used PWP 8 yet but have been following this forum almost daily because I am fascinated by the de-bugging process and appreciate a "peek under the tent" about what I can look forward to when I do adopt. Based on this question and some others I have seen, I suspect that a guide for how some...

Re: Saving Images

I have not yet downloaded or used PWP 8.0, but have followed this forum section almost daily for over a year because I am intrigued by the back and forth of the development process and also appreciate having a peek at what to expect when I finally do begin using 8.0. Also, being 76 and retired, I ha...
