Processing History

Post by WA5TKU » 24 Sep 2020, 22:08

Is there a way to capture and save the processing step used to create an image?

There is not a way, unless you meant PreProcessing, which can be saved.

By the way, would you use that to apply the processing to similar images immediately, or to remember the processing for the future (or both, or for other purposes ?)

Fabio,

I would use the History to process images both immediately and in the future. I am pretty low on the learning curve with AstroArt so it would be very helpful to review shat I have done in the past for Post Processing steps. Since you mentioned it how do you save the PreProcessing steps?

Thank you for your response,

It would be a nice feature though, a macro recorder ;)

Thanks for the feedback.
In the first page of Preprocessing, the buttons "Open" and "Save" do save an entire Preprocessing (files used, options and filters applied). The "Recent" box instead only saves (automatically) and retrieves the files used.

To emphasize what the Rudi and Wes have posted, i also think this would be neat, not only for the preprocessing (which works great and always amazes users of other, more popular software), but also to record and remember the steps after pre-processing. I am reprocessing images taken with differnet cameras and scopes and i can get confused about it pretty quickly (my age ;) )

I too think that a way to record processing steps could be helpful. When I get absorbed in making an image as good as I can I can not always remember what I did.
If I had a record of steps taken it might be possible to create macros to speed processing.

Something to think about.
