@zorki @yoyadasaw - perhaps you would like to hear someone else opinion. I came here the first time because someone criticized FossHub, you can take a look here: fosshub.com, what is the point?
I don’t expect every person to like FossHub, but I know that I appreciate those who are willing to send a constructive message. If your first reaction is to attack those who put some effort into realizing than what would you expect? I admit that if you struck me, I instantly jumped into defensive mode, I believe it is a natural human reaction, and there are a few trained not to.
About the new RawTherapee design I will say that I like the new design better than the previous one. It was complicated to understand what was the latest version, but again, this is my humble opinion.
You don’t like the new design. That’s great so let me give you an analogy.
2007-2009 - The first FossHub design was based on Andreas Viklund, a well-known designer
2009-2012 - The design was remade by a great designer - Gabriel Agu who is a Senior UX Designer at Booking . com
2012-2018 - A designer working for Adobe made new web design.
2018-now - we have a web designer that works for some large brands and another one who works on our future projects.
What I am trying to say is: no matter what you do or who you hire, people will criticize you because they don’t like the new look. Each time someone complained about the new look.
It’s like cars, nature, women, men, everything else. We all have a different taste so you can’t expect people to like your work.
My two cents: attacking people won’t bring anything good. Launch a constructive criticism, and if others share the same opinion, you will be able to convince people to change at least something. However, if you find yourself in the minority, I guess that’s it.
After all, what do you value more? RawTherapee (the website) or RawTherapee (the product).
Have a great day all of you!
