    Hehe, well.. I started this program last year and been adding features occasionally. There's nothing too tricky in the program and development was pretty straightforwarded and quick. Now I got everything included that I had in my mind for this program, and decided to release it as it is.

    I'm pretty satisfied the main structure of the program, because I don't have to touch the main program code at all when adding new "effects", I can just make a separate effect script and just include it to the main program by a single line... no need to modify GUI/menu/input/etc bits in any global source code at all. I was thinking to release the main source code and few selected example effects as open source, but I was too lazy to add any comments to the source code when writing it... and Joiner and some other things were really hurried additions and may not be that clean looking :) But let's see...

    I would like to see the possibilty to use the mouse more often to change x/y values direct in the main window f.e when cropping or moving/sizing the object for the Draw effect etc.
    This is partly already possible with fotochop.mcc;)

    Yeah, maybe I could add some "Get mouse coordinates" buttons or something on individual effect windows. But as this program can have multiple effect windows opened at the same time, it isn't as straightforward as with fotochop where you only have one tool in use at a time.

    And why do I allow multiple effects in use at the same time? Because it's a handy way to select and configure which effects are applied to batch converting processes, where the focus with this program is.

    Really cool app! At the very first sight I was hoping to see "glow" effect which is well known from two-state Amiga icons.
    And the "shadow" effect is the closest one to my expectations. But it adds additional bottom shadow, which I don't want and it scales down the image.

    I miss draggable screens... and do you? I know I'm in a minority unfortunately.

    What do you mean by "additional bottom shadow"? Doesn't it work if you set position to 0,0 and then it would make "shadow" or "glow" evenly around it?

    And this effect shouldn't scale the image down. It just adds some extra space for the shadow to the image, and the resulting image actually becomes bigger than original, but the actual original image should be 1:1 in the new image. Only if the image doesn't fit to the screen, the program just shows the image scaled/zoomed on the display (check if the percentage on window title bar is lower than 100%), but the image data and saved image will be 100% size.
