  1. Crop - add ability to draw crop rectangle directly

    As found in some other editors like Adobe PhotoEssentials - draw crop rectangle directly with one click to start then draw out holding mouse down, release mouse to create rectangle

    • Add Batch feature

      I would like to be able to do editing on a set of photos automatically. For example, resize, autofix, add watermark, rename file, save with one mouse click.

      • Collage feature - allow at least 2 photos to stich together

        With some products I like to show a front and back view in the gallery image and now have to do it with 3rd party software, then come back and crop/resize within fast photos. This would be a great time saver & I would do it more often if available. Overall this beta version is a great improvement on what has been a workhorse application for me!

        • Replace Background feature - select object in photo and replace background

          For example: select a foreground object then cut it out of the image and replace the background with a solid color.

          Could have a variety of backgrounds to choose from.

          • Replace Background feature - using Green Screen (Chromakey) method

            Ability to replace background with one click.

            What you have to do - shoot your photos with a 'greenscreen' backdrop and set up the lighting to minimize shadows.

            Benefit - much easier background removal - one click if the lighting is done right.

            Chromakey is available generally in green and blue, it allows us to take photos of our products on a green or blue background, and then by clicking the background color we can remove that entire color at once replacing it with a solid white background. I would love to see that ability here if possible.

            • Add Auto Straighten feature

              Add feature to automatically straighten images.

              If image has straight edge, for example a scanned page, would find the edge and straighten with one click.

              • Fast Photo's quick custom border feature is crucial.

                Dave, I like the polished look of PhotoAssistant, but without Fast Photo's quick custom border feature, PhotoAssistant is largely useless to me. Fast Photos quick border feature, as well as quick re-sizing, and compression feature, have all been fundamental. Granted, eBay no longer allows borders on photos, but eBay is not the be-all and end-all of my photos. I've found that Fast Photos has been the best photo program out there in allowing me to quickly edit the several thousand images I have in my Windows Photo Gallery.

                  • Add a "Get Photo" feature to get scans directly from a scanner

                    Getting a scan from the printer is sometimes important
                    LIke what I see and think this is a great solution for editing quickly. Had trouble getting the photos on my camera card recognized by the program. Once I figured out where they were files, it worked well. I do scan photos rather than photographing them. Easy way to get those into the program so I can edit and store?

                      • Add Publish action to upload photos directly via FTP

                        The Publish to FTP site feature of Fast Photos was very helpful - I hope that is an upcoming feature for PhotoAssistant.

                          Same as in Fast Photos so you can select a bunch of thumbnails and either Rotate or Delete

                                Along with the sliding bar it would be nice to be able to click on the positive or negative area and manually enter the number (hope that makes sense :). I don't feel like I have much control over adding or subtracting my values with just the bar. Great program though-thanks!

                                  Hi Michelle,
                                  Several people have asked for a numeric entry field, IE enter “40” to set the value of the slider to 40. Is that what you mean?
                                  Thanks,
                                  Dave

                                  I am a new user and unless there is a selection i am not aware of, After I type the text i want to put on the photo I have 9 locations (in the grid) to place it. On a few of my first pics the faded text runs right thru the subjects face. Would be nice to be able to lower the text "just a little" so it would not block or interfere with ones ability to recognize say.. a hall of fame baseball player.

                                    • I would like to be able to have the ability to size all photos the same and keep correct proportions for a Website page.

                                      So that all photos would fit equally across a webpage I would like to have the ability to resize photos to 800 x 800 and keep the correct proportions - whether the photo is square or rectangular.

                                        Hi Dave - Thank you for adding the compressed feature back to the save option. This is very useful. I tried it this morning and noticed that although, it compresses the file the new file does not appear on screen. It would be helpful to see the new qualtiy of the compressed file before saving.

                                        Also, when openning the compressed file the quality seems better that the acctual file. I will send you some screen grabs to show what I mean.

                                        Take Care and hope you have a good holiday.

                                        Ronnie

                                          It seems that currently the new version only saves JPG files. Need to add other formats.
