The new file is live, as of 1:45 pm today (10/8/13). The 11 people who already grabbed this may want to do so again. Enjoy!

Note: Please hold off on downloading this file for the moment; I accidentally updated an early version. A newer (better) version is on its way.


Updated license


Verified R14b readiness, addressed a few minor bugs, minor layout changes.


Simply added the screen capture.


New version modifies the limits of the sliders to [-1, 1] and indicates "clipping" (intensities <0 or >1). I removed "lightness" method, because it uses an approach that is inconsistent with other methods in the app.


Fixed a problem with the intial upload.
