A new release of PhotoQt with a whole bunch of improvements, some additions, and several bug fixes. Shoutout to @hadoukez at GitLab for all their feedback, testing, and support.
There have been a whole bunch of improvements, here are some of the highlights:
- Shortcuts: A new shortcut has been added to load a random image in the current folder
- File Dialog: The file dialog has received several new improvements, including:
- It is now possible to directly access the settings manager from the file dialog.
- Using the forwards/backwards buttons on a mouse now navigate forwards/backwards through the history.
- When in icon view, up and down arrows move a whole row up/down instead of just to the next/previous entry.
- The bread crumbs have been reworked with better subfolder listings.
- All paths now use native separators ('/' on Linux, '\' on Windows).
- Histogram: Proper support for images that are not 32bit has been added. The overall speed to load histograms has also been improved.
- improved context/popup/dropdown menus
- improved handling for custom menu entries
- click-and-drag for face tagger
If you want to keep track of what is going on with PhotoQt, you can now find milestones in the git repository with related issues listed for each milestones. Each issue will list all related commits to track activity and progress.
