Speeding up the execution of complex workflows

Turning off the colour management for thumbnail can significantly speed up execution of complex workflows, as advised in this thread:

Re: PW 8 newbie question

Marpel wrote: April 29th, 2024, 6:53 pm If I now wish to go back and do a different transform of a version mid-stream, I just make a copy of it, where that copy ends up at the top, and starts it's own stream, and carry on.
Or, as I do, you could add a side branch (or several of them) to the original branch mid-stream to try versions.

Re: PW 8 newbie question

Thanks for the tip, but I just can't seem to get it to work or to understand how to work with image windows in version 8, since it is so different from previous versions. I can relate to the hesitation - before Jonathan even materialized the PWP8, I just wanted to stick to PWP7 'forever' as I knew ...

Compare and 'double' Image B label

It all makes sense, but it confused me at first as I haven't used Compare for a while. There are 2 labels for Image B: one showing the name, the other used as a label the for the thumbnail to select the image B. I was thinking that having just one label for both could be more intuitive?

Histogram and Input and Output comparison

I was trying to compare the histograms of the input and output of an open transformation. I figured that it's possible to toggle histograms by Shift-clicking on the Amount Slider square when the Preview is set either to Output or Side by Side. I wonder if it would make sense if the Histogram tool ha...

Re: Update Available - Version 8.0.420

I just want to say that the new Readout tool is great.

Re: White balance

Could the Multi Colour Balance make any difference?

Re: White balance

What's the RGB reading of the pinkish background? I imagine you're using colour mgmt - what's the working space? Do larger colour probe or higher white thresholds improve things?

Re: Raw develop transformation : delays computing mean image

I believe this is the same phenomenon as described in this thread: https://www.dl-c.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3741 If you reset all settings in Raw Develop and then adjust what you need but leave alone the Sharpen Tab/Sharpen Factor = 1 slider, the Mean Image recalculations should go away. Alternat...

Re: Adjust and Sharpen Factor = 1

I tried and I'm getting it to read 1.00 relatively easily, but perhaps the internal precision of the value is higher than the one displayed and that's why it keeps recalculating, as it's not exactly 1? p.s. When I stretch the control box and Shift-Ctrl-click on the slider to move it by one pixel, th...
