Brush Variance

Post by Loadus » Thu 21 Feb 2008 13:41

Here's a small feature request, I'm not sure if this is already implemented ...

Add brush variance (randomness) to the brush dialog. This will give very good
texturing possibilities. (Also capturing and saving a brush tip from a selection
would be nice) ;)

Something like this, maybe:

And, a 'PUSH' MODE on the brush would also be very nice. It works similar to
smudge, but it's a little more harsh.

Also, as an off-topic request make the mousewheel work as a zoom at all times.
I'm used to the fact that when editing an image I can zoom in and out with the
wheel but in Photoline it has little or no function. :(

But anyhoo, these are just suggestions. :D

Hello Loadus,

just a short question. Do you have un-checked the option "Scroll image content by mouse-wheel" in Options > Working > Cursor ?

And you can always switch temporary the behaviour of the mouse-wheel by holding Ctrl (Command on Mac OS).

Back to the Brush Variance -- random would be pretty nice.

Just to enlarge on that a bit -- a random Brush Variance feature would be great when doing stuff like working at the border of, say, trees and sky, as I was when working on my picture to make the people less dark.

If you have a selection, apply "Edit/Copy", use the context menu of the brush field and choose "Paste". Is this what you mean? You can drag image layers to a brush field, too.

Has the push mode a different effect than increasing the intensity of the finger tool?

That was exactly what I was after! Excellent!

It's almost the same with intensity at 100%, but with variance and stepping (and capturing a texture as a brush) you can do this:
