- HDD usage fixes
This version is designed to boost application performance across multiple operations. You can make up your large photos much faster and with no waiting time for the actions to be applied. The processing time for some operations is now x10 shorter.
Now, all the main actions and tools are optimized to work much quicker, even for high-resolution pictures. For example, filter based functionality got significantly faster – applying Gaussian blur, box blur, shadows and vignettes now takes only a moment, not ages. We have also introduced a new Lanczos based image-resizing tool.
In addition to that we applied other under-the-hood improvements and resolved some bugs based on your feedback.
In this version we are introducing major improvements to the workspace. With tabs it is now much easier to work with multiple documents. We also reworked some elements so more screen space is available for your photos.
We have tremendously improved brushes in this update:
Now, you can continue to use Artipic if your trial expires. In this case, the app will be downgraded to the free Basic version that doesn’t include advanced features like Layers, Refine Selection, Color Range, among others. You can buy or upgrade to Full version anytime.
You can now use side-by-side comparison to check how Adjustments and Filters look before and after.
We have updated the app interface. Now it puts more focus on the images you edit.
From time to time, the app will ask you for feedback. We’ll use this to improve Artipic for you.
With the new color panel you can easily select and use color for various operations, as well as keep recent colors for further use.
Ultra HD monitors a fully supported now.
Panel management is improved and now matches the Photoshop panel behavior.
With the white balance module you can easily correct photos that are darker or brighter than they should be (overexposure and underexposure corrections). You also can easily correct photos taken with a wrong color balance.
Action history panel shows allows you to revert the image back to a particular action with a simple click
By pressing “F5” button you’ll get a list of recently opened images. It contains image thumbnails and the main image info (like name, location and dimensions). You can also mark any image as a favorite by dragging it up to the Favorite zone.
Printing capabilities have been extended. Along with standard parameters like orientation and DPI, it allows you to apply flexible scaling and positioning.
Performance of some operations has been improved
The gradient tool now works in a “live” mode so that you can see and adjust a gradient before applying it. A gradient appearance can now be adjusted by dragging it over an image and can be applied when the result looks satisfactory.
When the user clicks an edit box on a toolbar, a slider pops up. It helps to adjust the parameters easier just by dragging the slider.
It is now possible to easily scroll an image any direction without interrupting an operation. The user just presses and holds the space bar, scroll the image by dragging it, release the space bar and continues the operation.
It is now possible to fine-tune crop sizes by manually adjusting it via edit boxes / sliders
A keyboard shortcut for proportional transformation has been added. You can press and hold the shift button to activation this function.
Sets of controls on toolbars are now adjusted so it is much easier to perform operations
