Re: filmscanners: VueScan Histogram
I would second Julian's comments - expecially the part about leaving the
histograms in view for the Preview Memory function - that's the first thing
I tried to do and was a little frustrated by not being able to see what
happened until I had hit the tab again. Ideally leave the old histo there
until the moment that it changes - then when we see the actual 'switch'
take place I think we will quickly get the hang of the relationship between
the numbers and the graph.
PS - I find it hard to believe we are all sitting here having our
needs/wants met by a software developer, often in hours, let alone months
or years.. Ed, I hope you never learn the 'normal' way to develop
