View Filter (Example: Auto contrast) possible?

Post by Jou » Mon Aug 11, 2014 8:27 pm

Is it possible to apply a filter from convert to the viewer?
Specifically: The Auto-Contrast filter?
I don't want the change the originals, so applying a filter on the fly while viewing only would be great, and maybe it is already possible via .ini hack or something like that.
Color correction would be another candidate : ).

You can Use gamma correction (Tools » Settings... » View » View).

Thank you for your reply. But a fixed gamma correct is not the same.
I have quite a number of files which were scanned and saved, but where not handled with the right contrast during scanning/saving.
That makes them harder to read, or in case of BW comics, more stressful to to look at.
The auto contrast as view filter would do that on the fly, so I won't have to touch the originals, but still have it all readable.
