I specifically want to ask for some usability improvements that would make my life (and I suppose that of many others) much easier. Hope some of them will be addressed in PL3, otherwise let’s do it for 4!
Value input boxes in all tools
- When hovering with a mouse over a tool item, capture the value box and let the value be controlled with the mouse scroll wheel
- When selecting a value box in any tool, let it be controlled with up and down arrows (increase/decrease with 1) or shift + up/down arrows (increase/decrease with +10 or something that makes sense for the value box)
See Capture One for perfecte implementation.
- Instead of putting a line with two circle boxes that need to be repositioned, let the user just click in two points to draw the line. This saves time (see again Lightroom/C1 for good implementation)
DxO Clearview tool
- Add a checkbox option to automatically protect/mask skintones/humans in photos so they don’t get affected by Clearview which makes skin look horrendous
Auto white balance
Cropping within picture constraints
Much improved keyboard shortcut system more in line with other applications (e.g. [ and ] control brush size, 1-5 control star ratings). This would make it much easier for new users to feel at home.
Support for color labels even read-only would be progress from my point of view
Write ratings to metadata xmp files instead of dop files
