Re: transformation dialogs vanishing

I eventually tracked down the cause of the disappearing dialog boxes as a side-effect of a June-25 update that added the feature where hovering over an image browser thumbnail displayed its full caption as a tool tip. For the next release, I have removed this feature, at least for now, and that fixe...

Re: transformation dialogs vanishing

The issue you are describing appears to be specific to certain transformations, and it is not supposed to work that way. I am working on tracking down the problem and fixing it for all the affected transformations.

Re: transformation dialogs vanishing

Another way to make a transformation dialog box disappear is to accidentally click on the image browser which will generally close the transformation dialog box and select a new image.

Re: transformation dialogs vanishing

My guess is that you are accidentally clicking on the minimize button near the upper right corner of the transformation dialog box. In this case, you can get it back by clicking on its icon in the task bar. This feature lets you temporarily hide the dialog box if it gets in the way.

Re: Stack transformation - Choice of "normal" exposure for brackets

Curves computed from the Q13 combine the individual images, shifting them as necessary to get the brightness values to line up where they overlap, so you end up with a single, lower contrast image that covers the entire tonal range. If you do it manually, you run the risk of introducing kinks into t...

Re: Stack transformation - Choice of "normal" exposure for brackets

In a scene like that you may not need a normal exposure, but in any case the idea is to set the over and under exposed images so they show some detail in the shadow and highlight areas respectively. The normal image would then be in the middle of the two. If in doubt, maybe try shooting a sequence s...

Re: Paint Amount control recalculation

Sorry for omitting the explanation -- it is a replacement for the for the file of the same name in your normal PWP installation. Rename the old one and copy the new one to the folder and it should work OK. For details, see the Downloads page which offers this fast update option for cases where the h...
