Tool Stack/History in Browse Mode

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Tool Stack/History in Browse Mode

There are times that I go back to look at images that I worked on in LZ.  The issue I have is that I have to open each image to view what tools I used and/or history.  Is it possible to reviw already "edited images" in the browse window without having to go into the edit window?  If not, is it possible to add this feature?



What about saving as a style



If your need is to be able to replicate the processing from another picture, you can save that picture as a style, and then apply it to other pictures. I do not know if this will meet your needs. But if it is just the look from a few good pictures, this may be all you need


Have a nice day

Viewing Information Only, No Edit Needed

I'm not looking for the functionality of editing in the Browser Window just viewing.  For example, right now we have an "Info" tab to the far right of both the Browser window and Edit window.  In the Edit window we have the "Tools" tab (of course).  I'd like to see that duplicated but instead of being able to edit the tools, I'd like to view the tools used.  A tool list, if you will.


I hope that I explained it better.  Have a nice day as well!



I get what you are saying...

and I think it's a good idea.  I hope that once we have the last couple of editing improvements nailed down, we can turn our attentions to a few browser tweaks (although maybe one cool one is on the way...?  We'll see.)

Here and there,

when I want to, for instance, compare two very similar edits of the same photo, I look at the editing data. That can be seen and/or extracted in multiple ways (hex editors, or perhaps using this Juha's tool, that I haven't tried yet ...), but the simplest one seems to be opening a LZN file in a text editor. Saving the LightZoneTransform blocks as txt or lzn files, they can be compared with a tool like - on Windows - WinMerge.

Just a hint, perhaps slightly off-topic.

Be well!

Jacal: Not Trying to

compare two images.  Just trying to view what edits were made without having to go into edit window.  Thanks!
