    Change tweakParams spot.cc - hand-open-hicontrast toolbar.cc (#7029)

  • Simone Gotti (12 Mar 24)

    Add optional image rank/color load/save from/to xmp sidecar Add optional ability to load/save image rank property from/to xmp sidecar "xmp.Rating" and color property from xmp "xmp.Label" ignoring the ones provided in the processing params file. This behavior is disabled by default and an option under settings -> file browser has been added to enable it. When enabled: * On load: * rank and color are not read from processing params. * rank is mapped from xmp sidecar file rating entry. * color is mapped from xmp sidecar file label entry. * On save: * rank and color are saved to the xmp sidecar * rank and color are also saved to the processing param (pp3) files to keep them in sync Rating mapping: Since rating can be also -1 but rank only goes from 0 to 5, the -1 value is ignored like already done when importing from embedded xmp data. Color mapping: XMP has no color concept, usually programs like digikam uses the label field to write a color name ("Red", "Orange"). The problem is that this isn't standardized and label can be any string. Additionally Rawtherapee has 5 specific colors while other programs can have different colors with different name so they won't be shown if they don't map to the 5 color names supported by rawtherapee. On save only the 5 color supported by rawtherapee wil be saved. Trash is kept only in the profile files for multiple reasons: * There's no trash concept in xmp, there's the rejected concept assigned to a rating == -1. * We could map rejected to trash but in rawtherapee rank and trash are two different values and an image can have both rank >= 0 and trashed set to true. Using an unique value like rating for rank and trash (when -1) will require changing the current rawtherapee logic. * Also digikam only handles ratings from 0 to 5 (no -1) and handles trash in its own internal way without reflecting it in the xmp sidecar.

  • Simone Gotti (12 Mar 24)

    thumbnail: decouple proc params rank/color/trash Add a Properties type that contains values for rank, color and trashed Each value will also contain an edited flag. The properties variable is used to store rank, color and trashed. They are fetched from the proc params and will update the proc params when needed. This is the base for future implementations where some properties (like rank) will be also retrieved from other sources like xmp sidecar files.

  • Simone Gotti (12 Mar 24)

    thumbnail: rename get/setStage to get/setTrashed Also return a bool in getTrashed since it's already used as a bool in setTrash and in all the checks.

  • Simone Gotti (29 Mar 24)

    imageio: fix issues/crash on png with transparency If a png has a transparency chunk (tRNS), after converting the transparency to alpha we should also strip alpha (color_type is not updated with PNG_COLOR_MASK_ALPHA flag set) or the row parsing will return also the alpha channel causing a memory overflow.
