Curiousity simply kills me...
However, as the perfectionistic founder of Tweddo was unsatisfied with the way raw scanned image files were supposed to be saved in an enhanced and modified state, there would have been no way of returning to the originals in the future.
Now imagine that you're halfway into scanning project and you eventually find out that you've enhanced your photos incorrectly. Then you have two options: you should scan all the affected material again, or you simply accept the bad outputs... None of the two were an option, so a third option was created pretty quickly: making your own tool. And so Tweddo was born!
Additionally, you can also control which kind of before and after image are displayed. This can be done by disabling/enabling previewing the final before/after images in the "View" main menu. For instance, for the after image, you can choose whether to show the very final after image (previewing the output after running the last job in the list), or just showing the output preview after the current selected job. The same can be done for the "before" view. This way you can make direct changes done by the selected job more visible.
Photo collection processing
The main benefit of using Tweddo in this workflow is that you can split your scanning/enhancement activity to two different moments in time. This way you can focus on properly scanning your material (which is the most important step, as garbage-in automatically means garbage-out). Furthermore, when you're enhancing your photos on your raw archived files, there is no way in the future you can undo changes you've made there. With Tweddo, you're keeping your scanned files raw, so you can always redo the enhancement process at a later stadium if you want.
In general, it will be enough to use the automatic color enhancement jobs that Tweddo offers. It analyzes the colors in the image and tries to automatically correct to the original state. Additionally, depending on the type of material, such as printed, photo negative, black and white, etc., you should also add specific processing jobs for them. We've included a couple of general job list templates you can work with, that you can select on startup. These include all the basic jobs that you would need in most situations. Remove or add processing jobs to fulfil your needs. If some of your photos require extra enhancement, you can always make exceptions for them in the job setting configuration.
