An Appreciation

I am not a good beta tester. But as a dedicated user and fan of PWP since 2004 with PWP 3.5, I have been watching this “development” process from the sidelines with great interest – on an almost daily basis. There have been 83 total days between the March 26 release of PWP 8.0 Beta and June 17 (Fath...

Re: Lens Flare

Thanks, Jonathan.
By "a lot" do you mean a radius significantly greater than 30 which is the range where I usually go?

Re: Lens Flare

Jonathan, what did you mean by the term "soft mask"?

Re: Some preliminary information on PWP 8.0

This is really cool to get a peek behind a software development process. Sort of like seeing the outtakes from a TV sitcom and being able to see what goes on behind the scenes during the development of a finished product.

Who is still out there?

It has been nearly 6 weeks since the last active posing on this forum. But I notice that the views of that last posting by people who visit but don’t weigh in keep going up (now up to 170). Despite the recent change in PWP’s status, it remains my go-to editor and I don’t anticipate that changing any...

Re: Reducing haze or mist using PWP

Finally! A new post that relates to using PWP to solve particular image adjustment issues and not its new status as freeware. I am retired (10 years now), but not yet dead. Similarly PWP may be entering a well deserved retirement phase. But it too is far from dead. After getting used to and apprecia...

Re: JPEG File Conversion Size

When testing whether the "lossy" nature of multiple saves of a jpeg (without any intervening transformation activity) actually had a detrimental effect, a technique I used was to use the "absolute difference" setting in PWP's Composite transformation to compare an original image ...

Re: Social media group

I am also quite pleased to learn this (guess I didn't pick up on that nuance in the original announcement.) It directly addresses a comment I made in a posting in the "All Good Things Come to an End" thread that said, "I'll be very happy to keep using PWP for a long time (perhaps not ...

Re: All Good Things Come to an End

I think that having 15 posts to this thread in 36 hours is very interesting. Sometimes we go for weeks without a single posting. But I check in almost daily to see if anything is "new". These responses make it appear that we have a deeper and much more engaged forum membership (who may vis...
