Veranderingen voor v3.10 - v3.20 beta 1

  • This version adds a popup preview window next to the drop down list of effects, improves Windows 10 compatibility and memory management and also solves a number of bugs.



Veranderingen voor v3.00 - v3.10

  • the DPI default value has been set to 300 for better printing quality.
  • although transparency in PNG images (alpha channel) is not supported by FotoSketcher, transparent pixels will no longer appear black. They will now be converted to white pixels (much prettier!).
  • the donation screen (coffee cup icon) has been simplified and will lead to a unified PayPal screen.
  • when using JPG images, the compression quality has been improved for fewer artifacts (save to PNG or BMP if you want maximum image quality).
  • a visual bug with the Emergence 2 effect has been corrected. Sometimes the preview image would be pasted to the main result image in the top left corner.
  • some z-order problems have been solved.
  • a memory leak has been hunted down and solved.
  • when running a script (F5), FotoSketcher will be automatically minimized until the end of the process. If you wish to see the script running, just click on the FotoSketcher icon in the Windows task bar.

Veranderingen voor v2.99 - v3.00 Alpha 1

  • The new effect Painting 10 (brushstrokes) is functional and nearly finalized. I have not had time to integrate it in the script engine or the manual brush yet, but if you only use it from the main drawing screen, you should be fine.

  • added a new check box to double the size of the manual brush (useful for high resolution images, when the max size was too small)
  • a couple of bug fixes :
  • the most important bug fix concerns Windows Vista users who were sometimes getting a cryptic error message in French "Index de liste hors limite (-1)". Hopefully this is now solved.
  • the popup menu was showing incorrectly in the scripts window

  • New Painting 9 (watercolor) effect

Veranderingen voor v2.80 - v2.85

  • added a "script" button to the drawing parameters window to facilitate access to the script window (F5 still works of course)
  • added a new window style (skin) called Obsidian, which is lighter than the Charcoal default style (and more legible)
  • current zoom level is now saved more consistently

  • Painting 5 (watercolor) has been modified slightly to give a more painterly result (by increasing color variation between adjacent regions)

  • a new 'brushstrokes' frame

  • added a progress bar when creating the new brushstrokes frame (which can take a few seconds)

  • Resizing or pasting a new source image no longer erases the destination image (if the image sizes are the same). This is particularly useful for merging two images.
  • The last effect used is now displayed at the bottom right of the window (useful when using the undo/redo buttons to keep track of what effect was being used).
  • Minor interface changes (trackbar increments, manual brush trackbar focus rectangle removed, some window Z-order bugs corrected, visual cues added when parameters can be maxed by clicking on their value).
