Have 2.51 should I have 2.53?

Postby Rachel » Sun Dec 26, 2010 11:09 am

Is there an update that I am missing? If there is- where can I find it and what is the best way to install it?
Thank you for your help.

Oscar was very "quiet" about this update and I could not find out, what is new or better in v2.53... So I installed it over my v2.51...

Thanks anyway for the hint!

Looks like Oscar's added something in 2.53.. Check out the Loupe mode when you right-click on an image during painting. Really helps when you're trying to focus where you want the detail brushes to go.

Nice, Oscar!!!

I found something: in pause-mode there is a magnifying square, where you can see where you are painting :D

I had installed it a few weeks ago but have not seen any difference from my previous version. Never thought to play with it in pause mode. Will look at those features when I next do so. :)

Yeah! Under "News" on the Mediachance DAP page it says this for version 2.53

Most recent additions: Version 2.53

Rotate Source Image
Flip Source Image
There is now a menu item under the "Adjust" menu for "Rotate", which allows us to bring in portrait orientation files (those straight from the camera with the orientation stored in the exif) which previously came in incorrectly rotated to landscape and properly re-orient them. There is also the ability to "Flip" horizontally or vertically. Thanks Oscar! (And thanks to Gene and Wutz for pointing out the "loupe".

All this makes one wonder what other treasures are hidden in this version? <Smile>
