Re: Adjust suggestion

In Adjust itself, it is only possible to create one mask for all tabs. To be able to pick different masks for different tabs, one needs to insert the Mask Transformation upstream of Adjust and create the masks there. Is that correct?

Re: Vibrance Adjustment HSV-HS Masks... ... PWP 8.0 v8.0.136 & later

That may be oversimplistic, but how about using Saturation transformation/preserve Low and High + Hue and Saturation mask within it, clicking on skin sample and adjusting mask Weight and Brightness to protect skin colours and not much else, then adjusting black half of the Saturation slider to brin...

Re: Adjust suggestion

As I'm trying to use Adjust more instead of Levels and Color - the only reason is to try to use lower number of transformations in routine adjustments and still have decent control over the image - there are two adjustments in Levels and Color that I use often but can't quite do as easily in Adjust:...

Re: Adjust suggestion

Unrelated observation, but related to Adjust: in Adjust control window, when Settings button is pressed, the control blinks (repaints itself). I tried that with Curves and others, and this doesn't happen there.

Re: Adjust suggestion

Out of curiosity: it looks to me that the Brightness Curve/Advanced Mode uses something similar to Bilateral Sharpen, but allows for tone adjustments on the low-pass portion of the image. Is that vaguely correct?

Convert 8 to 16 bit for processing?

If an input image happens to be 8/24 bit and some radical adjustments are needed, does it make sense to first convert it to 16/48 bit to operate on it? I was doing it routinely, but the background calculations are done in higher precision anyway so I'm not sure if it makes theoretical or, probably l...

Warp and Scale Factor 1:1

The default in Warp is to produce an output image that is the same pixel size as the input image. If Warp is used to rotate/crop image (in ridgid mode) scale factor changes accordingly (which can be adjusted to near 1:1 with Scale slider). Is there a way of keeping the scale factor to 1:1 without ha...

Adjust suggestion

While this may be controversial - Adjust is an amalgamate of more complicated transformations with simplified controls - I have a suggestion, not sure how useful. In Adjust, the Curve tab is a simplified Color Curves transformation, I take it. There is also a similar Brightness Curve transformation,...
