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
