SharpControl v1.1

Risen from the tomb after many years in "Private" limbo...;-)

Amazingly good utility for tweaking assorted sharpening parameters values
(Radius | Intensity | Control | Edge) with instant preview feedback.

Let you save successive experimental parameters iterations for ulterior image evaluation.

Oldie but goodie...;-)

I restored my win7 X64 computer to out-of-box state (pre sp1) and it still would not open the 64 bit xnconvert, so I'm guessing it needs the visual c++

@ Zeke the Frog

Nope.. i installed Visual C++ on my system for Rainmeter.
still does not work for me.

i also tried adding the dependencies with no success.

Can't figure it out.
I just use the x32bit version.

v.1.75 portable - windows xp 32 SP3 - I get the following message which is : The procedure entry point GetLogicalProcessorInformation could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll
Previous versions until 1.74 worked fine.
XnConvert does not support XP anymore?

A very basic photo edit tool that definitely comes in handy. Although light-years away from skilled hands using photoshop, this tool is primarily to fix minor mistakes and picture problems (stains, tears, splotches). Larger wipe areas will show a smudge created by the cleanup tool but sometimes its worth it for what it covers up. Only 1.5 megs makes for a terrifically small and easy tool.

attention, this linke for download goes to a no portable version

@Regis: ...which would probably be v1.20?

smaragdus: Thanks for the info but I think this topic is better served in the forums. Could you move it from here and over at the SunlitGreen Photo Editor entry?
