Re: Profile Conversion

Probably due to copyright concerns, Nikon did not want to or could not embed the official Adobe RGB profile. As far as I know however, the significant internals that define the white and black points, the color primaries, and the tone reproduction curve identical or virtually identical in all versio...

Re: A tool to peek at the result downstream

There are several technical challenges, but the result would potentially be slow since the current and all the intervening transformations would need to be full recalculated to generate the preview each time you made a change, unless there was some other button to trigger the partial recalc. It is s...

Re: Making the transformation dialog boxes smaller

You can reduce the Font size PWP uses in File/Preferences/Font... -- this reduces the size of both icons and text in all the dialog boxes.

On Amazon in the US, you can buy an external 10" monitor for less than $100 -- they work OK for getting the dialog boxes and image browser off your main screen.

Right -- the Amount mask blends the input image with the final result of all the tabs.

When you specify a mask from another transformation, it becomes the starting point for a new mask which you can then edit further if you wish. This is why you can only select such a mask if the current mask is empty.

Re: Adjust suggestion

There is only one mask for the transformation. To use multiple masks, use multiple transformations.

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

The Mask Hue/Saturation tool does update the mask immediately but not the output image. If it updated the output image as well, it would be unresponsive for large images. If you want to change it after finalizing the mask, just click the Mask Undo button.

Re: Removing artifact from scans

I don't see why not. Picture Window has several tools you can use for different types of artifacts: 1) Speck removal -- removes small artifacts 2) Scratch removal -- removes linear or curved artifacts 3) Clone -- lets you paint over parts of the image with other parts 4) Paint -- lets you paint a so...
