Some thoughts on making a cleaner and less cluttered UI.


Recommended Posts

I think it would make using Paint.NET, if it simplified the number of windows needed for major functions.

Some examples of innovative design:

I recently released Babya PhotoPro , which has a innovative design: by making use of fewer tool windows, with the most important tools are kept in the main window with auto hiding panel areas -see the screenshot:

That hiding panels concept works well-it's de-cluttered and I love working with it.

Even if the various palettes could be docked to just a icon as in Adobe software, or a Office 2007 style ribbon interface it would be much cleaner.

Study these programs UI design-and I think they are the role models.

Just some thoughts about UI design-you don't have to change anything-this could wait until v 5.0.

Well, I won't be as sharp as Boltbait, but it seems to have 18 menus (is it menus?), the 'palette' is ... odd, I've never seen this before Blue - green - maroon - yellow - green again - white - violet.

It's surely a good prototype for next-gen apps, but it's really too next-gen for me.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio
