"But does it WORK?"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.Reply to this review
NO, it did not. I was able to open a 350 KB photo (jpg) after I selected 'About Absolute Denoiser" and, by the way, found that it is Version 10.2.
Whenever I moved the cursor to one of the side windows, the image disappeared in the main window. Moving the cursor back to the main window resulted in the image returning, but it was at the same position as when it first opened, although I had zoomed in and moved to the center of the image.
Clicking on the icon for saving the work (I did move all three sliders on the side windows, expecting to have effected some change in the photo) resulted in the error message "Error: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError" and on the title bar of the window was Done: 5%.
So I quit the app. . .
READ FURTHER. . .
Upon re-launch, the photo selected appeared in the main window, and various photo parts also appeared in the adjustment windows. Clicking on one of the sliders caused the Done: to show various per cents as it was working.
The image looked smoother, so I thought I should save it. It was a copy of the original, a 300 KB photo. This go 'round resulted in a different error message: "Error: only PNG are possible."
What this app needs is
Ã¢?Â¢ the ability to use Mac OSX open dialog,
Ã¢?Â¢ menu choices,
Ã¢?Â¢ explanations of what each slider should do at its optimum,
Ã¢?Â¢ ability to work with photos other than PNG (I'll see what happens when I convert a jpg to a PNG and work with that), and
Ã¢?Â¢ a reasonable way to save a photo, even if it is to save it in a different format.
I have not given up on it entirely. I cannot work on PNG files using Graphic Converter - at least not while this browser is open. After I am off-line I will be able to determine whether I can convert a JPG to a PNG.
This has been around awhile, but this is the first time I have tried to use it (because I have grown tired of manually repairing digital photo problems). It needs some work to be fully functional.
