Small update - added an edge-safe smoothing function which does a nice bit of denoising if you don't have a dedicated denoise program. Here's Simon's picture again in versions 1.03 (no smoothing) and 1.04 (default smoothing) with a 400% crop for comparison:

No smoothing in v1.103


Edge-safe smoothing in v1.104:


400% crops for side-by-side comparison:

Martin,
Have you any plans to read RAWs. This would make your program very useful in extracting detail that is lost with jpg's. I assume at the moment I need to convert to 48 bit tiffs. It's also a pity that your program runs so slowly.

I do have plans to read RAW but it's a big step so for the moment it's on hold as the 48-bit TIFFs give you the same results albeit with a less friendly workflow.

The speed is pretty good for the amount of work it's doing but is slower than it could be because it's written in VB.Net and it looks like that really slows down the memory access. I've started the conversion to C++.Net which should be much faster but the migration will take a while to complete.

Well done with version 1.105 Martin

A strange way to number the versions though, the highest number

is usually the way to recognize the latest version of software

as I had a previous version 1.90

Before



After



It certainly helps when there is strong shade in the scene .

A version number isn't a normal decimal number. It's major version 1 and minor version 105 => 1.105

I'm converting from VB to C++ which should be much faster which will give a new major release - v2.0

Just to go off-topic for a moment. It's a question of how you sort numbers. If character by character treating them as text, 105 comes before 90. If as a numeric, 105 comes after 90. Windows has been flexible in it's methods. Very confusing. There's some discussion at
http://hitcoffee.net/index.php/file/1127/feed/
and plenty more elsewhere.

I haven't looked at Linux's method but this is messy enough not to be a good way to order releases. Without looking into it too much, n.n.n probably sorts intuitively on all platforms.

No wonder it's slow ;-))
Sagelight uses SSE/MMX code and it runs like a rocket.
