The next version of BGRABitmap is coming. It is not completely finished yet but if you can help me test it, I would be happy.

The next new version of LazPaint will be 6.0. It uses BGRABitmap 7.4.

New features for colors (menu Colors)
- curve adujstments
- posterize
- complementary colors
- easier brightness/contrast
- in the color window, there is now displayed the hexadecimal value and the CSS name. you can click on it to enter your own hexadecimal value or CSS name

New features for reading files (menu File)
- image browser with thumbnails (File>Open), it also displays the recent directories
- preview of new image proportions (File>New)
- texture mapping on 3d object (File>Import 3d object)
- reading PSD (flattened photoshop)
- reading TGA and TIFF
- reading linux formats XPM, XWD
- writing TGA and TIFF

New features for tools
- when drawing curves, it is possible to specify to draw angles/curves or use autodetection (Tool > Curve, Select > Select curve)
- the eraser can be used to soften an image (in the toolbar, after erase opacity)
- the key Escape can be used to cancel current drawing
- the text tool allows the cursor to move in the current line, and to select/copy/paste text

New features for image handling
- little preview for canvas size, repeat and resample

Other changes
- better handling of keys, correction of bug preventing to use +/- keys to zoom
- better rendering of icons on Linux (using TBGRAImageList)
- better antialiasing of the selection
- optimization of the rendering
- faster undo/redo
- custom blur is now threaded (so it does not lock the program for a big image/a big mask)
- eraser width is now independent from pen width (and by default bigger)
- new set of icons for layer tools
- UTF8 filenames are better handled
- top most window are better handled
- file assocations will be unchecked by default in the installer

Features not added yet
- layer rotation is not implemented
- no feature to print yet

I am testing it on a Windows 32-bit. If you have Win64, Linux or MacOS, please give me some feedback on how it runs on your computer.

To compile you will need BGRAControls and BGRABitmap. LNet is optional. If you remove it from the project, then be sure to remove $DEFINE LAZPAINT_USE_LNET from uonline.pas.

The test version is number 5.9. It is not a release. Here are the download links of the source code:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazpaint/files/src/lazpaint5.9_src.zip/download
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazpaint/files/src/bgrabitmap7.4.zip/download
http://sourceforge.net/projects/bgra-controls/files/bgra-controls-3.0/bgra-controls-3.2-20140421.7z/download
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazpaint/files/src/inet0.6.6.zip/download

Dependencies:
- LazPaint depends on BGRAControls, BGRABitmap and LNetVisual.
- BGRAControls depends on BGRABitmap.

Hi,

I've already tested the new file open explorer! Cool.

Windows x64

- Well first I got a memory leak, something in uonline.pas, but I don't know if this is a bug in lazpaint or in lnet. (see the picture attached).

- In the layer window, the button rotate layer works? Or I don't know how to use it..

- Filter > Pixelate crashes LazPaint (win64)

<<< the last line

( BTW I don't have bitmaps of more of 4GB, at least nowdays .-. )

Debug:
With the new Lazarus 1.2 now we can debug x64 applications installing the tools. Add a 'Debug x64' compilation mode.

Other:

I know that there is available custom blur, you can try to add a shortcut for something called 'bokeh blur'? Basically is how blur is the most nice blur ever.

When editing a curve:
-- when curve is done but is still curve, no bitmap, allow to change the type of node (something like clic the node and press a key or something like that..)
-- if you double click add a new node.
-- if you double click and 'delete' toggle button is activated, delete a node.
-- Keep as 'curve layer' or something instead of making it bitmap.

Things that works:

Color features: OK, curves are great
Reading files: OK, 3D is faster than photoshop, and has best quality!
New features for tools: OK, awesome! Is easier than Inkscape and CorelDRAW / Illustrator to draw "Easy Bézier" - something like b-spline? You can add that tool as plugin in Illustrator hehe, millons of people will buy it, oh what is free in LazPaint! Export path as SVG will be the future?
The erazer has that blurry thing! + and - shortctus: cool for notebooks that does not have the middle mouse button.
Image handling: OK

Well now that I can compare with photoshop:
- The preview of all blend operations in one window is only available in lazpaint
- All the layer shortcuts to flip are cool
- It's amazing the speed improvement. And the whole LazPaint is better than ever.

Thanks 007!  :)

Windows 64
- About the memory leak, it is a bug in LNet, however that has no consequence.
- The rotate layer is not implemented yet.
- For the pixelate crash, it would help me to have the line of code where it crashes (the first entry in the stack trace)

About the debug in 64, I am not sure I can add it with my 32 bit windows, but I will have a look. If you can send me an updated project file with this mode, I can simply replace the current one.

About bokeh blur, it is a good idea. The current blur system does not produce such blur, even if "disk blur" is a bit like that.

Curve
- you can change the type of node by pressing one of the keys S(pline) / X(angle) / A(utomatic). I guess I can add that clicking a node would do that. However clicking is also used to move points so that may be confusing.
- adding and removing node is a good idea
- keep as a curve layer, well, good idea too, but that implies a lot of things

About color curves, yes it is quite good now.  :)

About SVG, well yes, that could be an improvement, with a new version of BGRABitmap supporting natively SVG stuff. I am not sure however how to connect this with FPVectorial.

About doing a plugin for illustrator, lol well you are right, theoretically I could become rich :)

Thanks again for the feedback!

In fact you will become rich :) don't forget the old 007 hehe

The debugger doesn't work (in BGRABitmapPack i've changed the settings and recompiled, no idea) but i've debugged it by hand

The problem is in BGRAResample.pas
Code: [Select]
procedure StretchPutImage(bmp: TBGRACustomBitmap; NewWidth, NewHeight: integer;
  dest: TBGRACustomBitmap; OffsetX, OffsetY: Integer; ADrawMode: TDrawMode; AOpacity: byte);

In the first iteration of
Code: [Select]
  for y_dest := targetRect.Top to targetRect.Bottom - 1 do
  begin     

Somewhat here
Code: [Select]
begin
      if tempData = nil then
        move((dest.ScanLine[y_dest-1+OffsetY]+OffsetX+targetRect.Left)^,(dest.ScanLine[y_dest+OffsetY]+OffsetX+targetRect.Left)^,(targetRect.Right-targetRect.Left)*sizeof(TBGRAPenStyle))
      else
        PutPixels(dest.ScanLine[y_dest+OffsetY]+OffsetX+targetRect.Left,tempData,targetRect.right-targetRect.left,ADrawMode,AOpacity);
    end

The assembler window is the same as I put you before. SYSTEM_MOVE$formal$formal$INT64

So I think that this is the line
Code: [Select]
move((dest.ScanLine[y_dest-1+OffsetY]+OffsetX+targetRect.Left)^,(dest.ScanLine[y_dest+OffsetY]+OffsetX+targetRect.Left)^,(targetRect.Right-targetRect.Left)*sizeof(TBGRAPenStyle))
In the x86_64.inc is defined Move
Code: [Select]
procedure Move(const source;var dest;count:SizeInt);[public, alias: 'FPC_MOVE'];assembler;nostackframe;
{ Linux: rdi source, rsi dest, rdx count
  win64: rcx source, rdx dest, r8 count }
asm
{$ifndef win64}
    mov    %rdx, %r8
    mov    %rsi, %rdx
    mov    %rdi, %rcx
{$endif win64}

...

Thank you very much. I guess I know what the problem is. There is TBGRAPenStyle instead of TBGRAPixel. I guess I did not check enough what Intellisense proposed here!!

It is fixed in BGRABitmap 7.5.

Hi Circular,
Excellent work.

I have installed it to TinyCore no problems. (fpc2.4.2/laz1_0_8). The file browser shows as full screen and the list box fields are overlapping/not wide enough but only after minimizing the dialog. Also, it crashes when I press the far left button (show icons button?)

I had no luck so far with win7 64 CodeTyphon installation. Seems to be a issue with CodeTyphon though. The 'Small IDE' doesn't want to install new components to the pallet for some reason. ??

I played around with the 'layers' feature. Really nice. Seems to work great.

Cheers

- Better blend op dialog, button to select blend op in layer stack
- Rotate layer tool

Optimisations
- Move layer tool optimisation
- Optimisation of selection rotation

Linux fixes
- Browse image fix for Linux
- Toolbar height fix for Linux (spinedits are a bit bigger)

Links:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazpaint/files/src/lazpaint5.9b_src.zip/download

I have attached a patch, adding a percentage option for the resize dialogue, I functionality I missed. Also, the patch enlarges two labels, which are too short for my language.
Something else I miss are scrollbars in the image panel.


if i can suggest you for the next steps:
 + multiple images open in tabs?
This is needed, in order to interact with several image in the same time.


Anyway, a useful feature will be a panel with images for processing, or in details:
Several files are added to the panel (with a file open menu or drag and drop). In the panel there shall be Prev and Next button. When the Next button is pressed current image closes and the next one is open. No memory will be wasted for opening multiple images at the same time, and there will be no effort for opening each file separately.
If you accept contributions, I might check if I can do something for that feature, which I need for processing scanned multipage documents.

Thank you. I applied your patch. I modified a bit so that the ratio is also kept with percentages. I also added code to prevent de size from being zero (1% of 20 is zero for example).

I am happy to have your contributions.  :)

About scrollbars, I take a note of this.

About having a panel for image processing, that is a good idea. It would be a light alternative to the tabs and multiple images opened at the same time.

There is some refactoring to do here. I guess what would be needed is a TMainFormLayout class that handles the parts of the main form, and return the coordinates of those. For now, there is TMainFormMenu that handles the main menu and the toolbar, and it only returns the toolbar height.

This layout class would get the Resize event from the main form, use the TMainFormMenu class, and would recturn the area for the picture. There are two different modes: with a PaintBox or without PaintBox. If there is a PaintBox, it is used to render the picture. If there is none, the picture is rendered on the form.

Toolbars position are computed with custom code, so it is not possible to use the Anchors or Align property. So the layout class need to handle that.

I can take care of the layout if you like, so that you can focus on the panel you would like to add.

However if you would like to do that layout too, tell me.

Here are some more feature I miss in LazPaint.
1. Selected areas, layers, drawing (with pen, etc) etc. shall be draggable with the arrow keys, too, not only with the mouse. Maybe it will be better if some hot keys are enabled, for example:
Left arrow- drag 1 pixel left
Left arrow+ Ctrl- drag 10 pixel left.
Left arrow + Alt- drag 5% of the image size left (sometimes 10 pixel are nothing, sometimes they are too much, depending on the size of the image).
2.  I am used to using GIMP, though I do not like latest versions. That is why I was searching for the "Open as new layer" in the file menu. Finally I found it in the layers panel, but I still think it should be available in the File menu.

3. Alpha channel cannot be disabled for the image editing session.
 

About having a panel for image processing, that is a good idea. It would be a light alternative to the tabs and multiple images opened at the same time.

 

That is not an absolute alternative, since if I need to copy from one image into another, I need both images open, but for other purposes it is better.
 


I applied your patch. I modified a bit so that the ratio is also kept with percentages. I also added code to prevent de size from being zero (1% of 20 is zero for example).
 
I will check changes when I update the SVN. Percentage is needed in the Canvas resize dialogue, too, I will check what I can do.

 

I can take care of the layout if you like, so that you can focus on the panel you would like to add.

However if you would like to do that layout too, tell me.
I suppose I won't be able to start before say 10 of June.
There is also a problem, that LazPaint does not show the default extension when saving images, I would take care for that, too.

1. Selected areas, layers, drawing (with pen, etc) etc. shall be draggable with the arrow keys, too, not only with the mouse. Maybe it will be better if some hot keys are enabled, for example:
Left arrow- drag 1 pixel left
Left arrow+ Ctrl- drag 10 pixel left.
Left arrow + Alt- drag 5% of the image size left (sometimes 10 pixel are nothing, sometimes they are too much, depending on the size of the image).
Good idea.

2.  I am used to using GIMP, though I do not like latest versions. That is why I was searching for the "Open as new layer" in the file menu. Finally I found it in the layers panel, but I still think it should be available in the File menu.
This is an easy one. I have done it.

About having a panel for image processing, that is a good idea. It would be a light alternative to the tabs and multiple images opened at the same time.
 

That is not an absolute alternative, since if I need to copy from one image into another, I need both images open, but for other purposes it is better.
Well the thing is that tabs is out of the scope of version 6.0, as I would like to publish it soon, lets say in June or July.

I will check changes when I update the SVN. Percentage is needed in the Canvas resize dialogue, too, I will check what I can do.
Ok.

I can take care of the layout if you like, so that you can focus on the panel you would like to add.

However if you would like to do that layout too, tell me.

Ok. I may have done it in the meatime.

I have started working slowly on it.

There is a boring issue- when I close the SVN version of LazPaint it shows some (probably debug) mesages. How am I to disable them?
Speaking of layouts , am I the only one who hates the scattered Gimpish/Lazarusish style of panels everywhere and over everything? :'(


Edit: I just came upon a bug under WinXp. In the new file open dialog, I tried to paste a string (a path actually), but pasting does not work, neither with ctrl+c, nor with rightclick->popup menu.
