What's New in Version 1.0.8
Some nice features, rough edges
This software has some promise, but does not have the reinement one expects from a professional application.
The good: can read HDR images like the RAW files from my Sony NEX, can save images as 16-bit TIF. Has some of the common useful tools for enhancing contrast, exposure, etc. Includes a few special useful special effects like vignetting. Indeed, the hard stuff all seems to be done - the manipultions are rapid, the effects provide thumbnails to illustrate the effects, the histograms are useful.
The bad: there is a lot of unpolished and buggy code. The tools need to work on any screen resolution - on my 13" 1280x800 MacBook, if I click to see the 'Tone' tools I can only access the first few controls - the 'Curver' controls (and any others beneath that) are completely inaccessible. If I click on some tools to disclose their items, the disclosure triangle moves off of the screen so I can not close them. Choosing 'Help/About' brings up a splash screen saying it was last updated in 2011 - when I close this window the menu item remains highlighted and I can no longer access my images or save my work - the program is then completely unresponsive and has effectively crashed. Some of the special effects are unprofessional looking (edges of stamp). There are some very strange bahaviors that may be specific to OSX - after a few minutes the Edit menubar is filled with multiple instances of the 'start dictation' command.
I also do not want to suggest that a small elegant program gets bogged down with features, but a couple of basic image editing tools like cropping would be helpful - especially as all the included 'frame' effects that add borders require a well cropped image. The top menu bar has very few commands but is always visible - the side histogram, frame and effects panels are littered with options that often fall off of low resolution screens but can each be hidden. Why not add a command to show/hide the top toolbar - this would provide a lot more screen realestate on low resolution screens.
I generally like small focused tools, but I wish this developer would focus on a single good tool than spread his efforts across a lot of different tools that are each too flawed to be useful to users. In short, I hope the author invest the time so that this product deserves the 'Pro' in its name and the price that is charged.
