Re: The little things: Typos, Wording, ...

"Deskew" is a funny word, to be sure, but it should have no hypen. An internet search for "de-skew" shows no hits. So please change all occurrences to "deskew." Also, "Deskew" should not have ... after it. There is no next screen, unless the user doens't select a box. "Deskew auto." does not need th...

Re: Composition program

XnTriq and others who've posted here, thanks a lot for all these suggestions. I think this thread/topic has become a very useful source of info on image composition tools. I've tried out several of the offerings and learned a lot about what's out there. Some of these are great programs, others less ...

Re: Lossless Transformation

Outstanding reply, JohnFredC. I agree with XnTriq, this needs to be in the permanent documentation. My understanding is that the permanent help doc is now a Wiki that Pierre has set up. Your treatise needs to go there.

Re: Face Recognition

I have already commented on this topic, but here's another thought: In order to keep a software product relevant and moving forward, and to make sure that development energy is spent in the best possible places, it is important to NOT COMPETE with people or companies who have (a) more resources than...

Little folders

I'm embarrassed to ask this question--I'm sure it's something obvious. But I can't find/fix it so here goes. Thanks in advance to whomever points out my oversight. I've installed XnView 1.96.5 on a new Vista computer. Got everything set up just the way I like it--thumbnail sizes, layout, menu bars, ...

Re: Face Recognition

I agree entirely, John. Picasa's face recognition is (a) wonderful, and (b) kind of pain in the butt. I've used it extensively, and it is great when one is working on family albums and classmate pictures. But its recognition of reflections, incidental/background faces, and various other categories o...

Re: Composition program

Hey XnTriq.... I checked out AutoCollage, and as you say it is very slick. However, it is useful only if one makes collages, which I don't. Good tip, though. Here's another I discovered, also from Microsoft "Research." It's called "ICE" for Image Composition Editor, and it is used for stitching imag...

Re: Displayed Image Quality

Pierre, that "fixed" the problem, thank you. I wonder if "high zoom quality / reduce" should be the default?

Thanks.

Displayed Image Quality

I don't know if this qualifies as a "bug," but it may be a situation/condition that you want to investigate. I got a new PC yesterday and temporarily had Picasa as my default image viewer. This morning when an image displayed, I wanted to look at it in XnView, and so I had the same image displayed i...

Re: Composition program

XnTriq, where do you find these things?!!! This is extremely cool, very science-fiction sort of stuff. A little beyond my needs at least for the moment, but thanks for the link. It's extremely interesting.

Re: Composition program

I checked out the various suggestions from above and found that Photoscape, Fotowall and Picasa provide a good range of composition options. There doesn't seem to be any one program that "does it all" (maybe PhotoShop?), but these three cover the bases pretty well. I especially like the cool things ...
