Post by Gerhard Huber » Thu 02 Apr 2009 20:24


we released version 15.02 of PhotoLine right now.
You can download from

New in this version:
- Attributes: simple images can now be scaled in the Layer subdialog and size
can be changed in the Document subdialog
- Reduce to One Layer: if the bottom most layer is a layer mask, the result
will be a layer mask, too
- Working Layers: can now be assigned to a single layer (analogous to layer
masks) by dragging to that layer (in the Layers dialog)
- Attributes/Document: EXIF and IPTC data can be shown
- PSD Import: supports guides now
- Copy Brush: the preview now uses the special attributes (layer masks, image
works and so on) for display
- Plugin support: once more improved
- Actions with shortcuts (setup in options dialog)
- Vector primitives: Flower and star with preset
- Browse: IPTC data can be edited directly
- Curves: Press Ctrl to read the color channels separatly

Bug Fixes:

key pressed
- Drag&Drop of files: sometimes it failed
- Text layers: with "Helvetica 33 Thin Extended" input of umlauts was not
- Clipping Layer and Working Layers: the combination of a ector clipping layer
and a working layer could produce wrong results
- Opening file from explorer, Windows: If PhotoLine was minimized, the file
was opend in a mini window

- Export/Save As...: file format settings were resetted on changing the
active directory
- Lasso: the soft edge was reset to 0 if the lasso was deleted by a
single click

aligned to pixel boundaries

the result

in 15.01
- Lense Flare, Mac OS: the bundled presets were not loaded

the alignment to the grid didn't work correctly
- Paste, text, Mac OS: pasting text from Carbon applications could create
wrong umlauts
- Options, Default Save Format: PLD didn't work correct
- Layer tool, path text, scaling, undo: if path text gad been scaled by using
the layer tool, several undo steps were created
- Working layer, Duplicate Layer: if a working layer was duplicated,
in certain conditions the duplicate used the mask of the original (error
disappeared on saving/loading)
- Painting, working layer: on painting in a layer, that was modified by
a working layer, sometimes the redraw area was too small
- PLD format: reading the embedded preview image didn't work sometimes

the embedded icc profile

had been combined, "Create Structure" was shown only sporadically

several times at the same location didn't work correctly

layer frames were sometimes drawn at a slightly incorrect position

- Modal alert dialogs, Mac OS: after a modal alert dialog helper
dialogs/palettes were sometimes no longer accessible
- clouds filter as working layer: the clouds filter didn't work correctly as
working layer, if it was used in an isolated group and in a 16 bit image
- Close and save document, Mac OS: under unknown circumstances there were rare
cases, in which a document could not be saved. "File/Save" did work correctly
- Combobox, Mac OS: Leaving the combobox with Return didn't close the dialog
