Here is yet another JPEG Saver release, coming out now because it has a couple of bugs fixed and a couple of useful extra features added too.
Windows are the eyes to the soul - wait, that's not right
The main new thing is this version is a command-line option. Oh, that's not very exciting, is it? Well, it's a command-line option that lets you run JPEG Saver in a fixed window that stays open until you close it, not like a screensaver at all. You will find a description and some examples on the command line options page.
It has just been a couple of weeks since the last version of JPEG Saver, but there are a few bugs fixed and I didn't want to wait until I have some big, complicated stuff done to release them.
Roses are red, violets are blue, it's Valentine's day tomorrow and I don't know where I'm going with this
Anyway, here's a list of what is new or fixed in this version:
This new version of JPEG Saver is mostly about transitions, though I did fix a bug.
New year, new transitions
Well, it was a new year when I started working on them. I hadn't added any transitions since 2021, so I thought it was about time I did something new, and I've come up with four that move lots of copies of the old and new image around:
- Sphere - images arranged in concentric spheres, rotating;
- Cylinder - images arranged in concentric cylinders, rotating;
- Ring - images in a ring, the camera pulls back and then zooms back in;
- Depth spiral - images spiralling away from the camera, which shifts position.
New year, new version of SVGGraph, new graph type. Actually, there are a lot of small changes in this version but I'll start with the new graph.
It's a type of bar and line graph, but with its own preprocessing so you don't have to figure out the line points yourself. Its main use is in quality control, but I'm sure there could be other uses for it.
This is a small release, with no new options and no new graph types. It does fix and improve a few things, so I wanted to release it before I start working on things that will take more time to complete.
There are a couple of visible changes in this version, so I will point them out using this pie chart.
The first change is that SVGGraph now shades the flat edges of 3D pie graphs,
3D donut graphs and 3D polar area graphs using a colour calculated from the
depth_shade_gradient. On earlier versions the two flat edges of
the “Milk” slice in the example above would both be the same colour
as the top of the slice, but now they are shaded to match the curved edges.
