Re: Hue Saturation Transformation

I'm not sure how I can explain this any more clearly, but try reading this as you seem to be focused on a model of how transformations work that is different from how they actually work. In Hue-Saturation, the so-called Affected Region is defined solely by the selection in the color histogram and no...

Re: Hue Saturation Transformation

The Show Affected Region checkbox applies only to those pixels selected by the color and brightness histograms. For these selected pixels, the sliders do show changes and the region changes when you change the selections in the histograms. The mask is ignored as far as Show Affected Region is concer...

Re: Double Amount sliders in Brightness Curve

This change was made back in Nov 2021 after I modified Brightness Curve to have two sets of settings, one for the masked (white) and one for the unmasked (black) areas. Since these two collections of settings are totally independent, it requires dual sliders to control their relative strengths separ...

Re: Brightness Curve and probe tracing

The Histogram tool can do this (click the Histogram button in the main tool bar). It has a separate eraser button to clear the accumulated red lines.

Re: browser images display horizontally

When you new image files, they are arranged horizontally as top-level images. As you add transformations, they are arranged vertically below the image they operate on. Transformations that do not have an input image also are created as new top-level images -- this includes transformations such as La...

Re: Hue Saturation Transformation

I think you may not be using the latest version as I believe I fixed 1 and 2 in the 6-July update.
