My curves tool

Curves tool in action

This is my curves tool. Inspired by the curves tool in Photoshop and Gimp. It keeps a list of presets which is located in a folder “curves” in the application folder. All files in this folder is .ACV files which is standard Adobe curve files. When you add a curve to the preset it saves the curve to the “curves” folder.

This project was updated 02.04.2015. When clicking outside the grid, or at an horizontal value where it already exists a point, it would give an error. This has now been corrected.

Hope you find this tool useful.

This is just a demo and not a complete application I think of it as a curves preview dialog.

Tiltshift in Delphi


Two simple programs for making tiltshift pictures in Delphi. A lot of improvements potential but it give you a starting point.

Not every image is suited for this effect, but that you will see very fast. Images with lots of sky or water usually do not work very well. City or landscape images might work out quite well. Do experiment.

I hope you like it and find it useful. The code is quite small. My biggest challenge was to build the gui in second sample (tilt shift 2)

SmartView sample application

This is the source code of the teaser program. Take note that this is just a sample and not, in any way, a complete application.

It uses a lot of my components so I suggest you download and install all of them.

Original a D2007 project but now a D2010 project. This means that the saving and loading of the albums are in ansi code and not unicode. When compiling in D2010 you will get a lot of warnings. I needed it to be in ansi code to be compatible with my existing album files. It should not be to difficult to come up with a different way of loading and saving albums.

Hope this helps a little in working with rkSmartView.

Some keys…
Ctrl + arrow left and right to expand and close all groups.
Space = Preview
Alt + left mousebutton will show image information.
F8 will show statistic information.
Press and hold left mousebutton in imagepreview to zoom.

This is just a compiled program of what I gone post next. Hope you like it. The source will be up as soon as I get my normal internet line back up and running.

My email is back so anyone that have posted something should be getting answers soon. Sorry for any trouble but nothing I could do about it.

If you want to compile this program (when source is available), you will need ImageEn, just make an account and you will get access to the download.

Shell thumbnails how to

Shell thumbnails

Well I needed to add thumbnails view to my explorer and had some serious problems finding out how to do it. This is more or less what I ended up with. Hope you find it useful. If you improve the code or have another solution I would love to hear about it and maybe post it here.

The code is not perfect and I am sure a lot of tuning can be added but this is a good start. What works in Vista and Windows7 does not work in Xp and some results are different in all versions so it is no easy task I think.
