After some time even the most beautiful images become boring. Every time when I opened the site the same “best” images over and over. There are quite a few nice new photos but they didn’t stand a chance of getting on the home page very easily. Combining the newest and the best in one filter, the hotest images gallery represent those images that are not quite too old to be boring and not quite too good to be old. They are an interesting mixture of most voted and most recent submissions.

Reshade now has its speed tripled. After several improvements for the implementation and the increase in processing power reshading runs three times faster. Also some tonal corrections have been added. After upsampling the image maintains very accurately the colors from the original. The sharpening works better with the same processing power used. So, the effective speed-up factor is more than three.
