New PhotoFlow version 0.2.3 released

The next PhotoFlow version 0.2.3 is out!
The source code, as well as OSX and Windows installers, are available from the github repository.
For Ubuntu users, the updated packages are available from the Highly Explosive PPA.
Updated archives for Arch Linux are also available from the github repository.

This new version includes several new features and improvements:

  • Added new perspective correction tool, based on the "keystone perspective correction" from Darktable.
  • A reset button is now available to restore the tools parameters to their default values

    New PhotoFlow version 0.2.2 released

    The next PhotoFlow version 0.2.2 is out!
    The source code, as well as OSX and Windows installers, are available from the github repository.
    For Ubuntu users, an updated package will most likely be available in the next few days.

    This new version includes few major improvements:

    RGB histogram visualization
    An RGB histogram has appeared above the layer list, on the top-left part of the application window. The histogram shows the RGB values of either the merged output or the sticky layer, depending which one is activated in the GUI.

    Interactive editing of gradients shape
    It is now possible to modify the shape of an horizontal or vertical gradient by means of control points that are added and modified directly in the preview area. This new feature is accessible when the editing mode of the gradient tool is activated, as shown in the screenshot below.
