vvvP is a young program. It is already working
well and it is perfectly usable, but it still misses some features that will be
added in future versions.
The development of an open source program is usually rather slow, since it is
done in the developers' free time, but this is a list of the features planned
- Language localization. vvvP will be
translated to different languages.
- Ability to rebuild the thumbnails of selected images, for example to
create larger ones.
- Basic image editing. vvvP will never be a
full-featured image editing program like Photoshop or The Gimp, but we plan
to add some simple tools like levels, auto levels and color correction. vvvP
editing will be non-destructive. It will not change the image file but it
will store the corrections in the catalog and it will apply them in the
image viewer window. Of course it will also be possible to save an edited
version of the image.
The idea is that people will never have the time to edit all the images
using an image editing program. Moreover having an edited version of the
image in a different folder would make images harder to handle. This can be
a good solution for a few selected images but it is not practical for a
large number of them.
Having the ability do do basic editing in vvvP
with a few keystrokes, without duplicating the image and without losing the
original one will make things much faster. Just think of a series of images
taken in the snow: the snow is likely to be gray, but a single auto-level
command will make it look white again in a few seconds.
- XMP metadata support.
