The comments about the PercepTool is yet another good example of the importance of providing some context. It would be much more helpful is the posters can support and substantiate, however subjective, their pros and cons with:
- their level of expertise and experience prior to using the tool
- the kind of images the tool is applied to (good captures vs problematic captures, tag sharp landscapes vs blurry abstracts, etc.)
- samples of before and after the tool is applied
- methods used but failed to achieve the same without the tool
Without these, comments can only lead to confusion and frustration.
It was not my intention to write a full-length professional review, I have neither the time nor desire to do so. I did post slightly more in-depth comments here
. You may also be interested in a technical analysis of what PercepTool actually does that was posted by someone else here
