Nonmodal Editing

The usual method for applying a correction to a digital image is to use either menu items or keystrokes to call up a dialog. The next correction step is then only possible once you explicitly end the last one, usually with a click on an OK button.

Because images are often corrected using multiple processing steps, and because it is often necessary to return to earlier image states during processing, this type of "modal" processing can be complicated and time-consuming.

Non-modal editing does not require you to explicitly close one dialog before starting another. The open dialog is either automatically closed (and the correction applied) or it simply remains open and active during the other process. Most contemporary RAW editors and all-in-one image processing programs work on this principle.
