The old Shadows/ Highlights (Live) Filter is finally back!

Recommended Posts

I might be overkill to open a topic just for this but I sincerely want to thank you guys for bringing back the old Shadows/ Highlights (Live) Filter in Photo Persona with the latest beta (1.7.2.424). In my opinion the old version (1.6) is so much better than the new implementation introduced with 1.7. :)

I like that they decided to go with giving the user options. The new version of the filter I could see have some uses, but it just wasn't a good replacement for what people normally expected out of the filter. Good job on the developers for addressing people's concerns with it. :)

That said, maybe the name of the filter option should be renamed to something other than "1.6"? "Legacy" might be a more fitting name, or "Original". Just feels a bit odd to name it after a numbered update.

I don't think it's a good idea to call it 1.6 or legacy as it isn't actually outdated. I'd vote for something like simple (new version) and complex (old version). Or standard vs. advanced, or...

I'm not totally convinced about the 1.6 yet, producing bad halos. Default not showing this problem.

Probably some more work needs to be done.

The highlights radius is only on 30 and causing such halos. If I want to get rid of the halos then 0 is the only option, besides bringing the strength down as well. In that case however I much rather prefer the new "Default".

Sorry but a highlight radius of 30 is far too much in my opinion. For highlights I usually use a radius of 3 px. What's more I don't see a problem in the fact that you prefer the new implementation. No tool works for everybody in every situation.
