I just discovered that layers is in the 1.0 release. I was playing with different overlays.jpg files I own and not anything that came from the Skylum store.
So, I tried a silver bokeh texture. I didn't like it, and wanted to replace it with a gold bokeh texture.
It did not replace one with the other, but added them one on top of the other, so now I have two textures. But only one opacity control because I am only working on one layer, not two layers. I did not add another layer, I added another image, expecting it to work the way L4 works.
So now I have two image overlays, with same color blue sizing boxes around each one. How do I get rid of the silver bokeh and only leave the gold? Pressing the reset U-turn arrow does nothing in the layers controls.
I pressed the backspace button to delete what I thought to be the active overlay, hoping to leave only one. In a worse case, it deletes them both.
Instead, due to a bug in Neo, pressing backspace results in a complete destruction/deletion of the image. Luminar Neo took that one press of the backspace button as a delete not of the layer image(s) but instead completely deleted the entire image I was working on, which already had been cropped, enhanced, sharpened, details enhanced, sky replaced, and colors adjusted.
With the press of a single button, all that work was simply deleted, no warning, as if it had never existed. An hour of work, lost forever.
I still have the camera original, but will need to recreate everything from scratch. This is not a little bug. This is a big bug, a deal killer, that if not fixed quickly will result in savage reviews.
Always protect the user's work. Never do anything that wipes out the user's work without the user explicitly wanting that action to take place. That means if the battery runs out and there is no power, the work is protected. This means if I go to a different program and use a different piece of software and put my computer to sleep, my work is still protected. Skylum doesn't even have undo and redo yet, so I am sure protecting the user's work is not part of the product roadmap.
In Apple Photos, images are deleted with the backspace key. Except they are not really deleted, but moved to a trash folder and can be recovered. And this only works in library mode, not while editing an image.
My image is not anywhere to be found. It isn't in recent images, it isn't in single images edits, in isn't in the Catalog, since I opened it by drag and drop. It is simply gone and I will need to start over from the raw camera original.
Please fix this very nasty and destructive bug.
