I have some curiosity happening in my mind.
What software there is for processing images that would have none destructive workflows (like adjustment layers etc) and would be in active development?
So I was able to find two applications but they doesn’t seem to be in active development, one is Pixeluvo, really nice looking app but not in active development.
Then there is this “Bloom, The Smart Image Editor”, but who knows if it is being in development or not, last news are from 2014 (?)
What else do we have?
Currently I am using Krita to edit pictures because of filter layers and non destructive workflows it gives, but as most of us know, Krita is aimed for digital painting and devs are not really looking into photography side of things.
Meanwhile GIMP is getting some nice development but I guess we’ll have to wait long time till GIMP 3.0 comes and after that we might see something like adjustment/filter layers emerge. However I am still not sure if performance of GIMP will improve, I tried GIMP again yesterday and still see not fluent canvas zooming performance which results in slowdowns of workflow. And that is weird, cause in Krita I get butter smooth performance even with many many filter layers and color management enabled. On GIMP, if I have color management turned on, I can forget about smooth canvas performance… But my hardware should be decent enough for fluent performance.
Anyway, are there any chances Linux users have more options to choose from nowadays? While googling, after long bouncing between various not really well suited mentions I managed to dig out Bloom image editor, Pixeluvo was easier to find. what else is out there?
