Bugs? New from Clipboard

Recommended Posts

I wanted to use a screen/window image, so did Alt-PrtScn. Then File/New from Clipboard.

...and it looks like the 'too white' effect we were getting with RAW import on the previous version.

 

I then added Curves to compensate and tried to Merge and the Curves layer wouldn't disappear. Tried with other adjustments. Same effect. Tried with 1.6. Happens here too.

The Copy from Clipboard layer is an Image Layer. Needs to be rasterized, then the merge works as it should.

I can't comment on the "too white" part of your post. But @Ron P. is right that New from Clipboard gives you an (Image) layer after a PrintScreen operation, and to merge your adjustment layers into it you'll need to Rasterize that layer, or use Document > Flatten instead.

Aha. Thanks, Ron. Bit of a usability confuser, though.

@Chris B: Think I've found another 'whitening' one... Going from Photo persona to Tone Mapping.

Here's video with both effects:

I still can't reproduce the New from Clipboard issue. Have you changed any of the settings in Preferences > Colour?

The Tone Map is applying a Natural preset so I'd expect this to change!

We could maybe add a toast to inform the user to rasterize the image layer. What do you think?

Nope. Checked Colour preferences. Identical to yours. Tried it again today with another image. Still happening.

Breakfast option? With marmalade would be nice.  :)

Information to help user would probably be a good idea. Maybe more generally, give a Preferences option to enable tips, then add more toast points...

I have a photo croped to 30x30cm 300dpi,  selected all, copy the image and then use new from clipboard.

The result is a modified dpi image, now its 96 dpi 93.75x93.75 cm.

why the new file is not 300 dpi ?

@dmstraker

PrtSc : I don't get the same effect either.
Tone Mapping : the whitening effect there is because a default preset with 100% Tone Compression is being applied (which is the same as in 1.6)

Same as in 1.6  = as intended I suppose
Though Resolution remains unchanged
