I am giving up on this software. I really try to be positive. It is relatively cheap, like 1/3 of the premium programs like Capture One, but it is not providing me what I had expected.
My setup crashes all the time, there are many annoying bugs and my wish list is long.
Today I took pictures of my kids in the snow and after spending an hour selecting the pictures I wanted to move on with, the software suddenly crashed and I cannot get it to work on this Catalog any longer. I have had to rename several of Catalog folders to force the program to open. Each time I start all over. This in itself prevents me from using this software long-term.
One of the most annoying bugs is that when using the masking tool, it seems like the reference for the mask is wrongly saved, meaning; I have a photo I was working with on and off. At one point, the mask had moved, lost its reference or whatever the cause. I deleted the mask and did it again and the same would happen later.
My wish list is long and I will not list all here. The Erase tool, being one of the single most important tools for me, it is very limited and not on par with other software programs. There is no feather options, leaving a hard abrupt termination of the brush strokes, which makes it blend less into the photo where applied. I still have to find a way to use this Erase tool in the situations where I make a stroke I did not want to do and select Erase. When you do this, then there is absolutely no way I know of how to undo this last stroke. If you say undo then all the strokes are undone. Today I wanted to play around with my old pictures and found a some where I wanted to apply a cropping to make them minimalistic. I found that the cropping tool has a minimum size limitation that on some of the photos made it impossible to crop to the result I needed.
I hope we will see updates coming from Skylum sooner than later.
