A DAM would make me so happy.  I'm using Irfanview plus directory management and it is a terrible workflow.

Please check out XNView. It is just wonderful.

I'm a 360 photographer since May 2015.  Some tools that would be very helpful to me:

1. "View... New Views": Please save the equirectangular projection for each view.  This will let me switch quickly between equirectangular view and normal view.  And I want both views to be updated in realtime.

2. Please add a tool like Lightroom's radial gradient.  I don't want to have to create masks.  

3. Please simplify the luminosity masking.  I would like it to work like lightroom:

- I turn on the option for luminosity mask / range mask

- I use a dropper to click on the shade I want to affect

- I adjust the left and right edge of the range using a slider.

4. One issue when making changes to the edge of a 360 photo is that it can create a seam.  I wish that if I toggle a "360 photo switch," then any changes to one edge would flow to the other edge as well, as though the left edge had a door to the right edge and vice-versa.  For example if I brush across the left edge of the 360 photo, I want the brush to continue to the right edge of the photo.  This is a unique feature that isn't available on other editors. 

Also, if this 360 photo switch option is activated, filters should not stop at the edge, in order to avoid a seam in the 360 photo.  This is already implemented in the current version to some extent, although occasionally some changes create seams.

5. I wish to be able to use the hand tool to rotate the equirectangular image (with no equirectangular projection).  Here's a video that demonstrates what i mean:

Improve the "Deselect all layers but one" functionality ... Currently you have to select all layers and deselect them to keep seeing just one layer. Photoshop solves that a lot more easy and elegant by holding the ALT-Key and selecting the layer you want to see.

@Peter Heinrichs - you can type a value in the radius input field that is greater than the slider maximum.  This is true of a lot of sliders with an input field.

It keeps the slider having a useful smaller range and therefore finer increments, without stopping other larger values being typed in.

Great Tip!  That does make it much easier and works much like the mixer brush in Photoshop for the low layer. Thank you!

 

So helpful, thanks!  I hadn't even thought of trying that, but it looks great.
