PhotoFlow 0.1.5 recently released, is a fully non-destructive photo retouching program providing a complete layer-based workflow from RAW image development to printing. The individual layers can be activated and de-activated using the radio buttons on the right of the image. Moreover, the layers structure can be saved to disk and re-opened again via the command line.
The new 0.1.5 release brings two brand new tools:
- the Volume tool, which allows to apply some local contrast enhancement and modulate the strength of the effect separately in the shadows, mid-tones and highlights.
- the Brightness/Contrast/Saturation/Hue Adjustment tool, which includes three curves that allow to modulate the effects according to the hue, the saturation and/or the lightness of the input pixels. By default the curves are disabled and all adjustments are applied globally. This tool allows to do things like “boost the saturation and the contrast of dull green colors in the mid-tones”. The screenshot gives an example of an hue adjustment that selectively turns the red colors into green, using the curve shown in the image.
Here is the complete changelog:
- Added new “Brightness/Contrast/Saturation/Hue Adjustment” tool, which replaces the previous “Hue/Saturation Adjustment”
- Added “Volume” tool (similar to “Clarity”, i.e. local contrast targeting the mid-tones), inspired byhttp://blog.patdavid.net/2014/08/clarity-in-gimp-local-contrast-mid-tones.html
- LibRAW is now compiled as a separate library (like in darktable)
- Updated G’MIC code to version 126.96.36.199
