Very happy to see the beta version out. Congratulations to all.
Some first things I noticed running under linux (most really trivial, but
since I have nothing else to comment :-) I will mention them anyway.
1. Not all sample images load successfully. Sometimes I can load one once but
2. Some menu entries appear to require to be called twice to be run? For
example the Help>IJ2_Update never launches the first time it is called. There
are several of those. (like Options>Fonts)
3. I do not understand what is the function of the slider under colour images
while looking at them in colour mode. Of course I understand that changes the
channel, but if that is to set the processing a particular channel (if so, it
is not working) shouldn't there a position where all the channels are
4. The colour frame on the colour image indicating the channel does seem to
have a different offset on the right and on the left.
5. The new histogram graph looks very nice, but does not convey information
well because the pale colours chosen: it has very poor contrast. Same for the
graph fonts these should not be pale grey but contrast better. Such pale
colours would not be a suitable for publishing those graphs either, so what
about making it more contrasty? Or at least provide an alternative
6. The icons, for some reason look blurrier than the original IJ. I took some
screenshoots and noticed that the antialiasing contast is much intense than in
IJ1 (so grey values that should almost not noted are quite dark) The fonts
look blurry too, presumably for the same reason.
Oh! I just discovered the "Look and feel", nice!
7. Wishlist item: I suggested this before but Wayne could not find a way of
doing it, maybe it can be done now?: In the Image Calculator IJ2, the command
opens a list of operators that is not that long and really does not need to
have a scroll bar if all the operations were shown (therefore reducing the
number of clicks one has to do).
8. For some reason when one changes the Look and Feel, new images are created
with scroll bars, but still showing the full size minus a couple of pixels.
Shouldn't this just show the image without unnecessarily reducing the window
and avoid the scroll bars until the view window does not match the image size?
I seem to be able to do this manually by enlarging the window size. Maybe the
metrics of the different look and feel schemas need rescaling or something
As said earlier, these are just trivial things. I appreciate the enormous task
achieved so far and look forward the new forthcoming versions.
