Announcing Pixeluvo 1.4.5

There is a new release of Pixeluvo hot off the press.
Version 1.4.5 brings some useful improvements to masking, two new colour filters, and a bunch of smaller tweaks and fixes.

You can now right click on a mask and choose “Preview Layer Masks” to see the actual mask itself. Then whenever a mask is active you will see the mask values directly, which can be very useful when working with complex masks.
You can also now create a selection from a colour channel by choosing Select->Select From Channel. If there is a channel that has high contrast between the foreground and background then this can be a useful starting point for creating a mask.

The dodge and burn tool now has support for targeting just the highlights, or just the shadow areas. Also by pressing ‘Z’ you can quickly switch between dodge and burn modes. (Also, pressing ‘Z’ with the brush tool active now toggles the colour between black and white).

Also new are the Photo Filter – for simulating a coloured filter over the camera lens, and the Channel Mixer filter, which can be useful for advanced colour manipulations.

Version 1.4 now released

Hello, we’re happy to announce that Pixeluvo 1.4.0 is now available for download.

We’ve made numerous improvements in this version. Here’s a brief rundown of the major changes:

  • A brand new ‘Straighten’ tool, which makes straightening crooked photos a breeze – it can even automatically crop the result for you
  • The selection tools have been improved -  you can now adjust box and ellipse selections after you make them, so getting pixel perfect selections is now much easier
  • Better snapping support in the move tool – you now snap to the left/right/centre of other layers as well as to the canvas (hold ctrl to move without snapping)
  • Support for UTF8 file-names – File-names with special characters in should no longer cause any problems
  • Masks can now be disabled temporarily from the right-click layer context menu
  • Filter dialogs now remember their positions, so they’ll always open up just where you left them
  • You can now change an image’s dpi value from the resize image dialog

As ever, both Windows and Linux versions are available from the download page.
