Today the new version 4.6.4 of DigitalLith went online. It is a version around one specific feature: Time Travel. Active users of DigitalLith know how hard it sometimes can be to get to the exact development time. Snatching might provide a good starting point, but then you adjust the development time and run development after development until you are there.
The new version gives you the ability to travel back in time in the development process – step by step. That means you now might want to do a bit of an over-development and then go back to find the correct development time and then do your final development with the time you found by time traveling.
To use the feature run a test development and then simply press cmd-left to go back and cmd-right to go forward again. You can not go forward over the step you ended the development. And you also can go back only as far as you configured in the preferences. The default value is 25 steps. To take over the currently visited development step into the development time press cmd-point. Or you can select to automatically take over the step (see the preferences dialog). You will loose the buffered development steps as soon as you change the crop, load a new image or change the image adjustments. If you are not interested at all in this new feature, go ahead and switch it off in the preferences dialog.
Another visible change is the renaming of a development parameter. Slowdown Shadows got renamed. I never liked the name. Now the new name is Tray Movement and the values are the other way around. That means Slowdown Shadows with value 0 corresponds to Tray Movement with value 100. If you have presets using it they are automatically converted.
