beta 18
- Redesigned arrows tools in Curves window (icons look slightly blurry there because global bug in many places of PhotoLine UI, when icons are transformed from original 15/17/19 to 14/16/18 px grid)
- Redesigned pages navigation arrows in the status bar.
- Some new Filters icons.
Image

(it appears that pages navigation arrows in the status bar and navigation arrows in browser share same icon source as Curves window. This is not good for customization. Those arrows also became invisible In dark mode because status bar don't affected by dark theme)

Hello,

I said before that I don't care too much about UI look.

But I want to recognize the effort you are putting in this attempt to improve it.
I can see the amount of work.
Thanks for that.

Personally, I would hate to see an UI all made of gray shades.
Colors are visual anchors that help a lot.
When a button is on, it should change color. Not just change to an indistinguishable shade of gray.
A tool icon should be colored.

Traffic lights are saturated red and green ! Not light and dark gray.

Best regards

Philippe

PhilM, i am not against colored icons and i posted a lot of examples of well designed icon sets arranged by color in other apps like Cinema4D or resent version of Blender. Combine tool groups by color just require more work and more rethinking. I agree that the look of "pressed icon" in PrhotoLine is not perfect. But it is just because PhotoLine use random system UI buttons look.
Tiny simple and clean monochrome symbols usually works well and just recognized by human as part of a text. Graphic editing apps are very special tools that should provide maximum concentration on image. Colored icons and too random shades of UI windows and backgrounds distract a lot in this scenario.

beta 23:
- Layer/Document/Pages - Rotate/Trim/Scale/Change Size icons
- Dynamic Symmetry icon
- Flipped Magnifier Tool icon
- other small fixes
