New colour selection palette
Major upgrades have been made to the colour palette.
- Styling improvements to the colour selectors.
- Colour swap (primary/secondary)
- Multi colour selection palette with palette navigation.
New toolPalette style
The toolpalette style has been upgraded to have a more professional look.
Batch dialog upgraded
Now the batch dialog from the 0.8 release shows the title and filename. Also shows a nice image preview too!
Hue variation dialog
A new dialog has been created to control the colours/hue of an image with two options.
- Colorize – Pick a color to colorize the image.
- Hue – Adjust the Hue of the image.
This also shows you a real time preview before you apply the changes.
Old photo/sepia filters
The Old photo and Sepia filters have been upgraded to produce more realistic results.
Auto levels/Auto contrast
You can now run Auto level and Auto contrast from the toolbar or menus. Both produce some great results!
Many more filters have been added during this development cycle. Have fun with them!
A new dialog has been created with the propose of easily setting up gradients. At the moment this feature includes the following options:
- Type – can be Duotone or Monochromatic
Open multiple images from file manager
A fundamental change has been made to how the application works for opening multiple images. Before selecting four images and opening them would spawn four new application instances of PhotoFiltre LX Studio. Each with one image per application window. Now all selected images will open in a new tab inside one instance of PhotoFiltre LX Studio.
Compression for JPEG images and other lossy formats
You now have the option to save your JPEG images with compression. I plan to expand this feature to other lossy image formats in the near future.
Now you can easily try this build out full time on Windows. I no longer have an awkward folder version but a full installer for you to try out.
Lastly the system for translating the application is in place. You can choose the application language in the Preferences screen and it will save to the settings. Currently the application strings have not been translated yet. More work will continue on this for the upcoming 1.0 release.
This wonderful new release was brought to you by the PhotoFiltre LX Team. Support this project by Pre-Ordering a copy of PhotoFiltre LX Studio and help this project to have a very bright future! Otherwise just head to the downloads page to try this build out for yourself!
