Paul Nolan Software Launches Online Store for Photogenics 5.0 : Comment 1 of 12ANN.lu

Photogenics is an amazing piece of software which, in my opinion of course, is only let down by the horrible non-standard GUI is uses on both Amiga and PC versions (haven't tried Linux yet). Why use your own interface (which seems to cause most crashes on Amiga) when you've got perfectly suitable standard interfaces on both machines (MUI/ReAction on Amiga)?

I guess Pauld did the same choices as Newtek did for Lightwave:
Using your own inteface increase a lot the software portability. If you use standard OS interface you will face the different GUI approach. Some features will be in some, some not, some will act different ...

Guess what? Paul Nolan is also the guy that worked/is working(?) on the new AmigaDE GUI.
I actually think that Paul is a very skilled coder and don't mind Photogenics' GUI. Besides the GUI of that SW is the secret weapon of it: portability.

In reply to Comment 5 (Twice-A-Day):
Guess what? I don't give a sh*t about the Amiga DE, Amiga Inc., their partners and there "proposed" products are of no interest to me what so ever.
So...could you please point out where in my original post I had said that Paul wasn't a skilled programmer. I'd say it's pretty damned obvious he is, releasing his software on three different platforms, and coming up with the application in the first place.
That's what I hate about all of the morrons that post replies to some of the topics on ANN and totally spin off in the opposite direction, sometimes I think, just to start arguing.

Now, if he could just make a port for QNX I would be happy :-}

..and/or MorphOS.. :)
Btw, I wonder when there will be a demo.. I was tempted to purchase it
but I want to test the stability first.

I just bought Photogenics and it was having problems. Wrote Paul, and as always, he was very helpfull and polite. He sent me a copy of version 5.0 without hassa, or accusataions or telling me the hardware was at fault, etc, etc. He sent me v.5 and I got it working.
Now I have had it for a week and have been learning and fooling around with it and must say it is _excellent_. Highly recommend.
One thing that stood out is the very clever GUI design in it. I realise that consistancy is a hallmark of good GUI design and it is different than the OS, but I feel the Photogenics GUI is better.
Photogenics 5.0: Very highly recommended.

Are you sure PaulN is still a contractor for Amiga? I'm not making any accusations or
assumptions, I just haven't heard his status with the company, and I see no mention
of AmigaDE or the new AmigaINC. on Paul's site.

There is a demo you can download from the Photogenics site. I have played around with the Windows demo, and it is pretty good. Also had a couple of email conversations with Paul Nolan, and he seems to be a pretty good guy, willing to listen to your ideas and bug reports and actually do something with them!

In reply to Comment 11 (Graham):
I know there's a *windows* demo, but as far as I know there's no Amiga
demo that is even fairly recent. And since the main issue that I want
to test is stability, a windows demo is unfortunately worse than
useless. :/
Well.. I'm not complaining, I'll just wait some, but if there was a
demo it's quite likely I would already have bought it.
