What's new in build 0015?

Here are a few notes:

Reminder: in build 0011 we added the brush stamp tool. Have you tried this little Gem yet?

Do you want another tutorial?

(December 2018)

Build 12 
  • Added initial support for loading much larger images. Tested up to 8k x 8k. It's still a good idea also to configure the undo image stack to use the disk instead of RAM.
  • Fixed crash in array to animation 

Build 13
  • improved GUI speed when working on large images, but broke the curve tool.  Build 14 fixes it.

Build 15
  • This is a refresh build to test the build process on a new machine.
  • However, there may also be several bug fixes.
  • This version is shipping as of 12/16/18 - check and re-use your download links. Contact us if any problems.

What does (some of) that mean?

yes, for build 0015, we had to get a new development system, and it takes a little bit of work to redeploy the dev system. But it looks like we've got all or most of it.
Enjoy 2019.0015 and please do let us know if you found bugs or new issues. They'll be temporary,most likely.

One of the major take away points from this is that you can use File > Open... to open an 8k x 8k image more easily now. Before, you'd be better off using File > General File Converter

You might still like the GFC approach better. You decide.

We still recommend you configure the system to use the disk for undo memory in such case of very large images.
