Image Editing features available in two flavours:

1. Edit in the Archive
Edit measurements:  Select an image in the Archive and select Edit. You can then change all usual parameters as in Live view and more. You can add more measurement tools such as Spots, Boxes, Circles, Lines and Deltas. You can move and resize them, add and delete them as you wish. As well as you can change the visual mode (Thermal/MSX, PIP etc), change palettes and temperature scale mode (Auto/Manual). In the sample image provided below I added  moved the Spot, added a Line, a Circle and a Box (which I also resized). The Line tool (the dashed line in the image center) produces a curve that shows thermal gradient along the Line, which is a white solid line at the image bottom.
The black background in the Edit mode is because the screen capture tool that I used did not show the image, only the tools. When you will use this feature you will actually be seeing the actual image as the background.



Adding a Sketch: Select an image in the Archive and select "Add Sketch". This mode exists in Flir touch cameras and was made for touch, so I had to selectively remove some features and only leave the ones that can be used with the keypad. First select the Pen color, then you can add Left and Right Arrows and Circles. You can move them to the desired location on the image. Same as in Tools Edit mode, you will be seeing the actual image as the background, so it will be easy to position the Sketch tools. The resulting sample image after saving the changes is shown in the right bottom in the following screenshot series:

Image Editing features (continued):

2. Edit in Preview mode. That is, when you enable the Preview mode in the Main Menu, when you take a picture - before it saved you will be presented with Preview of that picture which you can edit and then save or discard. This may be a useful feature when you need to take a picture fast and do not have time to set parameters and/or tools before taking the picture. You can then have time to change them in Preview mode. So first enable the mode in the Main Settings menu, if you want to use it:



You can then change Tools, Palettes, view mode and measurement parameters and save the edited picture. The screenshot series below shows some of the editing features available in Preview mode. My video capture tool did not display the object picture when editing, just the tools. Hence the blank background. When you will be using Preview editing, you will be seeing the object picture as the background.

Image Editing features (continued):

All these editing bits are saved as a separate overlay with the image. That is, you can always go back to the Archive and edit them again or remove them altogether.

So as you can see, the Liberated E4 Advanced features can get very overwhelming fast. Simply too many of them. Good or not - you decide for yourself. My task was to make it available.
I will probably stop at this point and let you guys digest what may have been the greatest liberation of E4 since sliced bread. It is not known if the manufacturer will bump up the protection in the next or following FW release for E4, so this may be your last chance to get one. Have fun  ;)

Thanks again Bud, did test the E4++ little more and i love it  :-+
Did check Backupfiles and the medical.pal is there from begining on no-wifi hw2.0 fw3.9.0.
Did read that its need sport mode to get medical pal, and the lines are in tool-conf.xml.

Bud, just wanted to let you know it works like a charm!  :D

One thing that got me curious though.. on one of your screenshots of "Image Mode", you have a "video" symbol.
Also, in the settings, it asks how you want video compression (mpeg or radiometric).
Did you manage to get video working?
And if so, will you release it?  8)

@ MRubert: yes, I did get everything to work, but I did have to turn "Screening Mode" to ON in the settings menu.
After that, also Sport mode was visible. Not sure what the relation is, but one seemed to facilitate the other.
Just to be sure, Sketch mode only works when viewing back photo's and selecting to edit them. I do have it there.

Without going back an reading 17 pages (I went back a few pages) can I go out and buy one off the shelf (amazon etc) and unlock it? I was aware of the hackability and then difficulty with non-wifi versions but I couldn't afford even the base camera then. Have hacks been released for all firmware versions of the E4 and E4 wifi to date? Thanks in advance!

There are some bugs in toolbar-config.xml.

There is no way to mix these entries:
      <ToolBar name="imageMode_.....
      <ToolBar name="measure_global_....

Try on image edit mode. Navigate in menu and the device will be freeze.

Glad to se that its working. :)
Did read Buds post #392 how to enable screening in menu, but screening is not in the menu at all.
Now i know its rollbacktime.
 Is the wifi icon in the picture a hint ?

Looks like my router should be OK since Bud's has a similar signature!   :-+

Thanks again Bud for all your help!

Sadly no, I could not get it working and the screenshot was from the time I was playing with it.
As to the setting in the Main Settings menu, I left it because was not sure if that may affect the way video may be transferred via USB or RTP, though at this time I could not get RTP (real time video over TCP) working. Also, I had some ideas for taking short video clips from the menu for Super Resolution processing purpose. But I have not gotten there yet.

Hmm, this is interesting, never seen or noticed that. Not sure what to say.

Welcome to the wonderful world of tinkering with the liberated E4  :-+    Feel free to spend all of your free time playing with toolbar-config and design_ui.xml for the next week or two  ;)

Seems you have not read any of the posted pages, otherwise you would see this:

Advanced update package for E4 2.0L WiFi fw v3.9.0

This thread only has update for the above combination, but it's been reported that also works for 2.0L non-WiFi model

LOL..  ;D

I see you're using the "three-point" preset I adjusted.  :)
I've been fiddling around with this preset to see if I could make it show the delta T value between the max and min measurements.
But I have not succeeded.. The only thing I managed to get is the delta T between the spot and max temp.

So, question to the smarter brains in this forum:
Maybe somebody knows how to get the delta T between minimum and maximum measured temperatures to show below, just like "preset_deltaSpot.rsc" and the "preset_deltaTemp.rsc" does?

Ah, so that's why the icon was there..  ;)

It would be an overly awesome feature to have, but maybe the model (despite your kick-@ss skill in hacking) would be hardware limited in this case..
I figure video mode would require the necessary processing power for it to work.

Just a heads up, perhaps coincidence or FLIR Is monitoring this page but the wifi version is on a national backorder until the 16th of January

FLIR do monitor this forum and the upgrade related threads  ;)

Whether they would resort to ceasing supply of the E4 is another matter. I very much doubt they would take such action as they have not done so previously. The hacking of the camera is not popular with FLIR, but I understand they are not losing any sleep over it  ;D

E4 sales since the cameras release have been AMAZING !

To be honest, I think the release of this 'hack' may even boost E4 (WiFi) sales more, for a people who otherwise may not buy it..

And FLIR can look the other way and gladly accept this boost..

win-win, right?  :D

Well.. If it costs them the same to manufacture the E4 as it would the E8, and not having to support/honor the voided warranty on the liberated E4, they would be very smart to sit back and collect the profit. 
Actually, what they really should do is send a bonus check to Bud for the boost in WiFi E4 sales!    :-+ :-+   :-+

I personally do not think this caused any material change to the manufacturer. Since publising the Basic package it was downloaded only 250 times by now. Some people probably did it out of curiosity, so i think it may have been less than 200 units updated, which is nothing on the big scale of things.

I am pretty sure it is going to be a new firmware version.
