Histomages is an image editor based on a new interaction model that considers histogram views as spatial rearrangements of image pixels. Users can select pixels on image histograms as they would select image regions and directly manipulate them to adjust their colors. Histomages are affected by other image tools such as paintbrushes. We explored some possibilities offered by this interaction model, and discussed the four key principles behind it as well as their implications for the design of feature-rich software in general. http://www.aviz.fr/histomages/ .
