Do you have a mac with a Retina display or other system with a HiDPI monitor?

It would be great if we could get some full screenshots of RT branch hidpi-icons running. Here is a build of this enhancement test branch for MacOS https://kd6kxr.keybase.pub/RawTherapee_OSX_10.9_64_5.5-82-g0407dc348.zip

Thanks @Hombre @TooWaBoo and others for the hard work getting the interface ready for hi-def.

Only on Macs?
I have a HiDPI monitor but I am on Manjaro…


#3

Not only on macs! You just have to build the hidpi-icons branch.


#4

OK, thanks.
WIll do it tomorrow (it’s bedtime over here).

Have fun!

Morning!

I fetched the hidpi-icons branch, compiled as usual,
and performed a rough/swift test for each resolution (see below).

Monitor = 28" Samsung
gfx GTX-1050

Resolutions tested
3840x2160
2560x1440
1920x1080
1280x1024

No peculiar icons found.

However, the Retinex module refused to expand,
irrespective of resolution (but that probably has nothing
to do with icons :blush: ).

Anything more you’d like me too look out for before
I go over to the dev version?

Have fun!

PS: Oh, I just noted that you want full screenshots. One moment, please…

#7

@Claes awesome! Can you post up the original resolution of your highest res shot?


#8

Also interested in seeing the file browser in hidpi. Please make a screenshot of it if you possibly can.


#9

Yes. Retinex only works when editing raw image files. Looks like you are editing a jpeg, so the retinex tool should be disabled.


#10

Gladly – but I do not understand your wish, please rephrase it?!?


#11

I noticed the screen shots have each been downsized to the same dimension 1475x756. Would you be able to post your shot of the 3840x2160 screen without downsizing?


#12

File browser coming up (or is it down?):




#13

I spotted that, too, and I am actually puzzled,
since I did not perform any downsizing… I used
Manjaro’s standard Screenshot app for the task.

I’ll investigate after lunch…


#14

Patience, please…
I believe that I am on to something…

@HIRAM Thanks for this topic. Could you please add to the OP that test should be done with a TooWaBoo theme (“RawTherapee” theme is not updated for HiDPI). (ping @Claes )


#16

:slight_smile: Oh, how cruel you are :slight_smile:


#17

Good things come to those who wait?


#18

My bad. Totally forgot that detail…

#19

Ha!

a) Wrong red Heinz colour.

b) My present method (trying to preserve res) produces l-a-r-g-e files).
Pse PM me your e-mail addy so I can send you a zip or two.
