Version 21

Post by russellcottrell » Fri 13 Jul 2018 03:48

Hello, and thank you for the many improvements in version 21. Am updating the tutorial. One small detail in the English version: on the curves dialog, the Tools menu is labeled Aktion.

Some issues with the Lens Correction filter:

The new filter is a real improvement. Unfortunately, the labels for Horizontal and Vertical are reversed.

Also, in the preview, the one labeled Horizontal is only applied on one side; it is applied properly to the actual image.

When applied as a dynamic filter to a raw placeholder image, the Perspective adjustments do not appear to be applied. Vignette and Chromatic are applied as expected. The only way to apply Perspective adjustments is to create a new stamped layer.

p.s. Separate horizontal and vertical scale sliders would come in handy.

I've tried all day today to get a new registration number for v21, but...still waiting! :x At this point, I'd just like to get a refund. Does anyone know of some magical pixie dust that will cause communication to flow between myself and the brothers?

Thanks!

We will fix that.

Yes, on Windows they are reversed. We will fix that.

That got me, too: the preview is scrollable, so the result is only partly visible. But this fact is obviously easy missable, so we will change that.

Yes, if applied to a placeholder layer und if full preview is activated, perspective correction using Lens Correction doesn't work properly. We will fix that.

Thank you, Martin. I finally got it sorted out through my gMail account. I'm confused as to why my ISP's e-mail server is rejecting messages from both of you because I've not had any issues with receiving upgrade messages in the past. Something must have changed! Bottom line...I just should have remained calm and made contact through these forums. Sorry, I'm not exactly the most patient person in the world. ;)

OK, now that I have my v21 registration issue sorted out I have question:

In the v21 manual, it references a "Lensfun subdialog" perhaps within Filter>Digital Camera>Lens Correction. I don't see any such subdialog in there and I've looked through all the menu items and still don't find any reference to Lensfun. Can someone point me in the right direction? It would be very useful to see this info. In case it matters, I've opened a raw file.

Thanks!

The LensFun library isn't shipped with the windows-version. You have to download it from http://www.pl32.de/plbin/lensfun.zip - or directly from https://sourceforge.net/projects/lensfun/files/ (newer version.)

Just copy the LensFun-directory into the defaults-directory of your PhotoLine-installation and start PhotoLine again.

Um, still not working...

I downloaded and copied the "lensfun-0.3.95" folder into C:/Program Files/PhotoLine, but still don't see any lensfun subdialog. Should I see this in the Lens Correction menu item?

Thanks!

The SourceForge version is source code. Copy the folder lensfun-0.3.95/data/db to the installation Defaults folder and rename it lensfun.

It doesn't automatically find my Canon G11 camera and lens for some reason; I have to enter them manually. The aperture and focal length are in the document EXIF data. You just have to know the crop factor (4.6); entering it doesn't change anything. (Entering a wrong value such as 1 does.) It corrects lens distortion but not chromatic aberration.

It finds the Nikons o.k.

Thanks, Russell, that worked!

OK, next question... Why is the preview box inside the Lens Correction dialog black? Well, so dark gray that you really can't see your image in there.

Never mind...duh...I always trip myself up when opening raw files. Gotta create a merged layer or something before going into a filter dialog. :roll: Repeat as in a mantra! :lol:

Lens correction (especially devignetting) has to be applied to the unmodified raw data (in the linear camera color space). Therefore the preview is quite dark.

Ok, thanks, Martin. Just so I'm clear and doing this properly... Immediately after opening a raw file, I, then, apply Lens Correction? I don't have to select any particular layer?

Make sure to select the RAW data layer, then apply lens correction.
