Release of G'MIC 2.9

Yes at least on my Mac, improvement. Images in original size (lena,leno)

Resizing works even with ^Z. Only switching back with second ^Z produces this

Nope.
Just updated rigth now (21:53 pm).
Windows 10 as usual (Monitor FULL HD)

Both images are displayed but it is no longer possible to grab their upper border to drag it.
In short, I can not resize them…

Their are displayed on the upper part of my monitor (this is why their border is not available)

Hum, another trial :

$ gmic https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dtschump/gmic/a603e1c57141639e15edc300ab840a1631d1cf8a/src/gmic_stdlib.gmic sp landscape,4096 +b 10 dp

Ok.
The 2 images (landscapes) are one of top of the other and it is somewhat possible to grab their border in order to resize them.
EDIT: actually, grabbing the border of the image above is quite difficult to say the least…

Here is the screenshot (Asus, with the monitor of 13,3 inches):

Hmm, the second window disappears with that display problem I know from Quartz. After some ^C and moving around I get the windows both visible. As I said this is IMHO an X11 problem of the Mac XQuartz!

By the way, ^O stores a 6 channel image!

?? What the hell ?? Gives a 3-channel image here.

Hello David,

Just tried on the MSI notebook (FULL HD - 15,6 inch)
Windows 10, as usual.

I can grab the border of the image underneath (landascape_c1) but no the one of the image above…

I clicked into the original window!

No error from me, it is a 4096,2731,2,3 image!

Yes, a volumetric image indeed. It’s a bug I’ve just fixed. I’m pushing a new update file in a few minutes.

ok, ^O stores the image from the respective window!

The fact I don’t understand is why the display windows are so big.
They should never been larger than the half-size of the screen resolution, which is not the case for you. That is a mystery to me.

On my Mac the width of the monitor(s) is the ruling factor. Without 2. monitor eg lena,leno dp appear nicely side by side. Size : 1680,1028

With landscape sample its top/bottom!

With the second monitor and large width the position of the second window is difficult, with landscape image as well as lena/o the title line is outside mouse access! With help of the mac window manager it is possible with some difficulties to get the two windows side by side.

I am really glad to read this…
Because it means you are a human being and not only a super mathematician genius :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
Just joking of course

Unlike other French scientists who are in the spotlight right now, I don’t allow myself to say that it works when it obviously doesn’t :wink:

(see https://pubpeer.com/publications/B4044A446F35DF81789F6F20F8E0EE for explanations).

Hello David,

What is a strange is that yesterday, when you first released this option I have tested it on Windows 10 with many images (side by side) and it worked extremely well…
Today’s “improvements” have some nasty side-effects on Windows :slight_smile:

As an aside, there is a “famous” french scientist (probably a fraud…) that I recall quite well for his controversial pubblication on Nature:

I’ve tried another thing, to improve the placement of display windows (last experiment for tonight :slight_smile: ). Could you please try:

$ gmic up
$ gmic sp landscape,4096 +b 10 dp

Thanks for all your feedback!

$ gmic sp landscape,4096 +b 10 dp

Works well. Tried to scale it to more images. When at 3x3, the title bars of the top row is above the screen and the bottom of the bottom row is below (as to cut off the info). At 2x2, only the title bars are affected.

I found (and hopefully fixed) a small bug this morning concerning the placement of the display windows by G’MIC (specifically on Windows). This should at least prevent that the window title bar goes out of the screen and that you can always drag it.
Will re-work a bit on the d2d command today, and I’ll post new binaries for the pre-2.9.0.

With 2.9.0 (pre-release #200321), I noticed that when I do help I don’t get the one from user.gmic. Usually, it has priority over update*.gmic.

This happened after I did update just now.

Can’t confirm @afre report.
