Curves+

Recommended Posts

Because it is an apparent Internet Explorer issue with an .XML. I had a problem happen like this a week or so ago, and so I just saved to a different directory and ran PdN with admin power. Not sure if any of that helped, but I was able to open.

Does it matter? It was my fault, and had nothing to do with Paint.NET. It was me adding plugins during the install or something like that. Vista thought something was threatening my install and kicked UAC on from what I was told.

I've just re read what the two of you were talking about and didn't understand one thing ""Mike" what the heck are you talking about?

Pyro just wanted you to know I'm able to save xml files in 3d shape and load them so I'm thinking its in the xml function of this curves plugin.

Why am I "Mike" in quotation marks?

We were talking about inernet security and how it might affect your saving and loading issues and then got a little off the beaten track and discussed my UAC issue I was having a week ago.

actually it was to get your attention Mike... as I couldn't follow in anyway shape or form what that had to do with the error message. and besides my hands are aching from arthritis today and its easier to use the baby finger to do the quote marks than to stretch us for the @ sign. ouch.

Fix has been posted. I think it was freaking out because the version number on the pyrochild.effects.common.dll was not exactly the same as the one it was looking for...

Could you change the way how control settings are handled: so that the curve(s) and check box states would NOT be stored for next use when I click Cancel? If you wonder what I mean then: open curves+, make some sort of curves, click cancel; then open again - curves are changed although I didn't accept it last time. It's quite annoying.

I truly and honestly don't know what you are talking about.

A) That sort of thing is handled by Paint.NET, not individual plugins (unless they're not written correctly)

B) I never changed anything regarding setting persistence when I modified the original Curves effect source code. Any odd behavior in that department in Curves+ will be in Curves as well. Which it isn't.

C) It definitely does not save it on my computer when I click Cancel. Can't reproduce this at all.

Are you sure it hasn't been saved from a previous click of OK? Remember that if you click OK once, those settings will be the default every time after until you either restart Paint.NET or click OK again with different settings. You can click Cancel a million times, and the defaults will always be whatever it was set to when you last clicked OK.

This is correct that original Curves behaves identically. But knowing how busy Rick is, I hoped you could fix it faster.

Here is repro steps:

The real-life situation is that I'm processing several images one after another and sometimes want to try same settings for different images, with little fine-tuning.

1. Say I made following curve suitable for my pic1:

curves1.png

Clicked OK.

2. Now I want to try the same curve on my pic2. Open Curves+:

curves2.png

Notice that check boxes are already changed, though that's not my main complaint.

3. With Curves+ still open, I want to fine-tune the previous curves because result didn't look that good. Let's bend the Red curve downwards.

My image still looks bad, so I click Cancel (in order to restart Curves+, with "good" settings from pic1).

4. Open Curves+ again. Although I clicked Cancel in step 3 after modifying red curve, it still returns my "screwed up" curves! :x

curves4.png

Note (to make it more confusing): If I click Reset before fine-tuning (step 3) then the further settings are not saved when followed by Cancel and step 4 really returns the curve I made @ step1 - as it always should. But I don't want to click Reset before fine-tuning previous "good" curve.

Fixed for next release. Should be tomorrow.

(The checkboxes not being remembered as well.)

That was really quick update, but will you share us the goodies too? :wink:

Sorry. School started again. Swamped. Already!

I'll try to post it tomorrow, but if I don't get to it ( I do have a social life as well ;) ), it will definitely be on Saturday.
