I edited the original English version a bit, and improved the sentence structure - Gerhard & Martin, I hope you do not mind. :oops:
I am thinking about how the release page will become a main page of interest in the English written media, and I thought it would be nice to have less of a direct German-translated version.

Feel free to use it, if you like it.

My version is here: http://estructor.altervista.org/pl20/Ph ... n%2020.htm
Just copy the html.

Let me know if anything else must be added. I haven't added the new Exposure adjustment yet (or will that become part of v21?) - German version only is fine for me, I can translate it. Perhaps Ken can proofread my version?

thank you very much for your effort.
I took your text and copied it into my page. The PDF is updated, too.

Great job, 123! The text reads very nicely and flows naturally. :)

One suggestion for the "Circular Gradients with Vertical Scaling": lose the "vertical" in the title and description because the circular gradient does not have to be scaled in a "vertical" direction only. This is also true in the "Widget Control" description. This feature can be referred to as "Circular Gradients with Elliptical Transformation", for example. "Transformation" is a more precise description than "Scaling".

The Spell-checking description should mention that it's only available in the 64-bit version of PL.

In the "File Formats" description, it might be nice to emphasize that the PSD import includes attempting to convert both Smart Objects and Smart Filters.

Thanks guys!

I have updated the text according to Ken's suggestions. Thanks Ken for proofreading. And I forgot to switch the capital to lowercase on one of the heading prepositions "of". Also a small number of other improvements.

Changes are marked in red.

Make sure it's "PhotoLine" with the capital "L"! :wink:

For the spell-checking section, a little bit of a rewrite:
If PhotoLine is installed on Windows 10, the system's built-in spell checker is used* - just as is the case on macOS. (It is no longer necessary to install a separate spell checker such as ASpell or Hunspell.)
*supported in the 64-bit version of Photoline only.

For the Circular Gradient and the Widgets sections, I still have a problem with using "scale" and "scaling". To me, "scaling" refers to modifying the overall size and "transforming" refers to modifying the shape....
