Image masks are cool, as long as they are not orsuveed. I have had a tendency to overdo it a bit simply because they are fun! It would be even cooler if it would be possible to design masks within the software. I know this is not a simple request, but I'll suggest it anyway. For example the gradient masks, rather than having a number of different fixed gradients (where usually none of them are ideal for the photo at hand) it would be really nice if the position of the intensity of the gradient could be manually set (like in drawing programs like CorelDraw). The checkerboard patterns I have found useful to hide unfortunate items in a photo and emphasize others, but it requires a lot of luck to find the correct mask. Again, customization would be great!Just an idea. Thank you for a great product, thanks to you my family photos are organized!
