Hi, I know, it sounds like a waste, but trust me, it isnt. I firstly didnt even know what are those drawing modes for, but soon it fastened my work. I suppose they should have a shortcut key too.
For example: You draw or edit an image with a simple brush, when you want to erase some stuff, you switch to the eraser, but this one has different brush size, shape, opacity than the first tool. Using different modes like erase and plenty more are efficent. (I admit, some of them I never used - solarise, and other modes, I do not use to use). Maybe I am explaining it wrong, but You can try it for your own. The program I used to work with is named TV Paint Animation, for someone it can be an unknown program, but believe me, it is very strong and when comparing prices you can see: PaintShopPro 105 € Photoshop 264-441 € TV Paint Anim. Pro/Std. 950 € / 475 € GIMP free OpenSource :) that TVPA is not just a shit-program, but has features that really make work with images draw/edit more efficient. let me know what do U think ssuuddoo On Fri, 22 Feb 2008 10:49:48 +0100, Raphaël Quinet <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > On Fri, 22 Feb 2008 10:17:26 +0100, "Radoslav Schudich" > <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: >> the available drawing modes should have these options too >> (there are plenty (21) drawing modes, but I definitly miss these: >> >> ERASE (to be able to erase the drawing (not just one color) with any >> drawing >> NEGATIVE >> >> -it makes the drawing/editing easier, because when you want to erase >> something, you do not need to change your tool 2 eraser, but can choose >> to >> erase the painting with the brush you currently have. > > Could you explain why it would be easier to do this with additional > drawing modes instead of using the existing shortcuts to switch to the > eraser and then switch back to your previous drawing tool? > > If you use the existing shortcuts for the tools or if you define new > ones, then you only need to press the key for the eraser, erase what > you want, and then press the key for the other paint tool to continue > drawing.
