Stale preview window during resize processing

During resizing, there is an empty 'preview' window that disappears after the image is processed. In PWP4 such window doesn't appear.

Re: Printing correct colors

One practical thing to try to counter purplish tint of printed saturated screen blues is cut down on the saturation a bit and shift blues towards cyans a little (e.g. with Colour Correct you could do both selectively for blues in one go), before converting to a printers/paper colour space. It may no...

Re: Workflows: What's Next?

Bob, Having a 'Mask Widget' could solve another potential problem - the size of the workflows. Small is nice. The premade masks may not be that heavy, but they are (were?) stored in the workflows. I recall reporting during the beta that once when using Composite Widget, I ended up with 60+Mb workflo...

Re: Save widget and ICC profiles

I think I figured out what happens: whether the Save Widget embeds or ignores ICC profile while saving JPGs depends solely on if 'Include Profile' in Save dialog is checked or not at the begining of the PWP session . So for instance, if 'Include Profile' in JPG save dialog in unchecked when PWP star...

Re: Workflows: What's Next?

Dieter, You can already do it (mostly): if you change 'All except rejected' to 'Selected images only', you can select a single image (or a group), and then go through widgets and adjust the settings (edit text, change the frame colour etc), just for this image/group. Then you select another image an...

Re: Show clipped pixels in RAW dialog

Kiril or Jonathan can likely answer it better, but as I take it, it doesn't matter what you adjust in RAW dialog and in what order - the Raw histograms predict what the distribution of pixels values will be in the developed RAW (though it skips demosaicking - so there may be some slight difference b...

Re: Show clipped pixels in RAW dialog

To see blown highlights, extend the white point slightly beyond 100% (say, 101%, or whatever the closest higher step is). If your colour model is HSV, the clipped pixels are those that will have at least one RGB channel clipped. In HSL, only pure white will be considered clipped.

Save widget and ICC profiles

I have a workflow consisting of two widgets: convert profile and save. I convert 48 TIFFs from AdobeRGB to a Durst Lambda profile, then save them as JPGs. The JPGs have ICC profiles stripped. I recall Bob reporting that the settings in the Save dialog (save ICC, save comments) are applied by the sav...

Re: Show clipped pixels in RAW dialog

One trick to try is to extend slightly the white and black point in the Dynamic range slider (below 0% and above 100%), with the 'show clipped pixels' on. You have to be careful in interpreting histograms then as they will include flipped/clipped pixels.

Re: Save metadata - JPG comments treatment

Thanks Den, the interesting thing is that a LeadTools comment is not added if a JPG comment (this is different from EXIF) is present, but the existing comment seems to be erased.
