Re: Bug fix release 15-Mar-2019

Totally agree, the "live" histogram/waveform will be really useful. Thank you.

Re: Waveforms

Very cool. I can see how this might help when using make to isolate very specific areas.

Re: Waveforms

So, would it be possible to see a waveform while editing an image? For instance, in the histogram mode of the Adjust transformation? Or to link the histogram tool to the Preview image?

Re: Waveforms

It's like a histogram turned on its side, reading bottom to top instead of left to right (for black to white...), with an actual representation of the left-to-right spatial distribution of the image... it's a little bit to wrap my head around. But really mesmerizing to look at. I may have to try to ...

Re: Waveforms

"strangely beautiful", indeed. The Color Wheel and other test patterns produce interesting, but difficult to interpret results. In the video they illustrate the waveform with a percentage scale. How is that implemented in PWP8? Is the top of the window = 100%? Also, the cursor/markers don't seem act...

Re: Waveforms

Had just seen this same video, then thought that if I couldn't implement this in camera, it's probably not going to be very helpful.

So cool that you can add them to PWP so we can see how they work...

Re: "halos" around bright objects

Any chance you can post small JPG versions of the original scan and the edited version? And also the transformation(s) you are employing?

Re: Problems opening 16-bit black and white TIFF images

Don't see it here, but I could only test with newly created 16-bit B&W files... (can't put my hands on any old ones in a hurry...).

Saved a NEF as 48-bit RGB, then converted to 16-bit B&W in PWP8. Thumbnail looks fine in Windows File Explorer and in FastStone, and opened fine in PWP7 and PWP8.
