Large List of Suggestions and Requests for PhotoLine Tools

Post by shijan » Sat 27 Jun 2020 07:40

Here is separate special thread of my Suggestions and Requests related only to PhotoLine Tools and Tool Options.

Partially collected from this legacy thread https://www.pl32.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6297. It's up to developers to accept those suggestions or not. One request per post. Please keep this thread free from spam and from abstract non technical discussions.
To make this thread cleaner, i will just delete posts with implemented options. Same time i will update global changes list in "[Legacy] Large List of Suggestions and Requests for Photoline UI and Tools"

cLUT based and XYZ based Input ICC profiles should NOT affect surrounding grey background field. Please make that grey background always uniform separate item with fixed user selectable color.
Even if i turn on "Hide border content" problem exists, but only when i assign cLUT or XYZ based Input ICC profiles to image. When i convert it to Matrix Based working ICC profile, gray background is back to normal state.
If i assign different Matrix Based input and working ICC profiles it don't affect background.
Probably this could be fixed somehow in future?

Something like this:

Invert tool smart adjustment layer. There is invert button in Curves tool, but simple separate Invert adjustment layer always feels more user friendly and simpler way to go.

Layer style problems: Outside shadow is actually not real outside. If you apply it to (semi)transparent image - shadow is visible inside under the image.
Also shadow size feels very very limited. Shadow limit should be increased at least to 1000% instead of 100%

Outside shadow usually look like this:

It is also strange that layer Opacity don't affect layer style. For example even if i put layer into group and change Opacity - the shadow remains unchanged.

Crop Tool and Rectangle/Circle Lasso Tool: Those tools Needs Center point similar to center point used in layer handles. Or at least center crosshatch guide overlay like this:

Improvement idea for Curves Tools:
Additional background layer with visual representation of actual summary curve shape created by Contrast/Luminance/Gamma sliders. It may help a lot for people to learn how those tools actually work. Option to turn it on and off if someone feel it too distracting.

Extended control for Contrast:
Slider.1 controls angle of straight contrast line.
Slider.2 controls curvature shape strength of highlights.
Slider.3 controls curvature shape strength of shadows.
+ option to link slider 2 and 3 to adjust the same curvature shape strength for shadows and highlights.
+ instant visual representation of curve shape, as described in earlier post.
dreams, dreams.... :)
Examples simulated with curves tool:
