A tracking bug for GIMP curves-related bug reports?

Elle Stone
Hi All,

I was about to file a new bug report on GIMP Curves, specifically about
how difficult it is to place precise points especially in the shadows
and especially when using Linear RGB.

But instead I did a search and found 9 open bug reports about Curves,
some of which have been open for as long as 11 years, and some of which
are about making it easier to place precise points on a Curve, including
one I filed two years ago and forgot about.

Would it make sense/be helpful to open a tracking bug for Curves and
copy the following 9 bug report links/summaries to the tracking bug?

1. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/1528
Allow precise or numeric input in color curves tool
open 1 month

2. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/814
Problems with placing points on Curves
open 2 years

3. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/700
Add "black point", "grey point", "white point" and "auto" buttons to the
curves dialog
open 3 years
    IMHO bad idea conceptually, too easy to clip colors. Also see this
related bug report - something could be done to improve using GIMP
Levels for white balancing without clipping:
    https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/624 - White balancing
gives unpredicable and/or unusable result
    open 3 years

4. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/699 Curves RGB histogram
Make the histogram (dialog, Levels, Curves, etc) default to show RGB
instead of Value

5. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/656
RFE: checkbox to limit curves tool to always increase (not flatten or
open 3 years

open 8 years

7. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/331
adjust color curves: limit the curve points to function only
(seems to be about more control over placing points that are close together)

8. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/241 Support other color
spaces in Curves
(with links to bug reports marked as "duplicates" that explore the idea
of Curves such as LAB/LCH)
