Release Notes: Brightness or color can be used to regulate retouch functions. For example, you can apply noise reduction to darker image areas (or the inverse). An image can be converted into a dot array à la Roy Lichtenstein. Slide Show now has some cute transitions: fade-out/fade-in and various kinetic replacements. The 100 most recent images can be displayed in a gallery window, making it easier to return to a desired image. Batch tag functions have popup windows to monitor progress. A mashup can be made using cutouts from other images and text annotations. A few more user interface improvements and minor bug fixes are included.
Release Notes: "Edit EXIF User Comments" and "Annotate Image" (write text directly on image) were split into separate functions to simplify a confusing interface. The EXIF descriptive text can also be displayed in a small live window as images are viewed (also in Slide Show mode). Annotate Image works faster, especially for netbooks. The Trim (crop) aspect ratio buttons can be customized. The Italian and Dutch translations were updated.
Release Notes: The EXIF key for user-defined tags was changed to be compatible with most other (Windows) programs that also use tags. A conversion function is provided that should be run before any new image editing is done. A warning at startup is given. See menu: Help > README for details. Editing of thumbnails is now blocked to prevent thumbnails of thumbnails from being created. A small memory leak was fixed.
Release Notes: Two new functions were added: one to assign tags to many images at once, and another to rename many files at once. Selecting areas to edit was extended and simplified: multiple areas can be selected with line drawing or object/color clicking, and unselecting is also easier. The paste area was made easier and faster. Curve editing no longer loses the cursor connection when nodes are dragged at high speed. Two minor bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: A new function was added to select an area by color. This lets you click to select a contiguous area matching the clicked color within a controlled range. You can click or drag to accumulate new areas. A right-click will undo. Edit functions can then be used within the selected area. Panorama was improved to better compensate image scale changes due to a horizon difference or relative rotation in the images being joined. Auto-search for camera parameters was made more robust. A new method for noise reduction was added, based on variance. Blend-width control was made non-linear for better control of small values.
