May be that this long discussion suffers a lack of communication?
2 languages were used both like English but one is the English of the
developers the other that of artists/users...similar words are used but seem
used with quite different meanings
to summarize "use transparency as a colors"
" brushing a transparent color" is exactly as use the eraser (if there is a
alpha channel) Maciej Pilichowski seems agree on this point
SO what is missed seems just a equivalent of "AIRbrushing a transparent
color",,..a option in the eraser tool to use airbrush instead then a brush will
solve that, and for sure will be a cool new feature.
May be is missed, also the possibility to select transparent area as was a
color,meaning using the magic wand or the color selector tool..
but since there is "alpha to selection"(=select transparency) that is no too
missed... well is missed its usability since that option is hided in a weird
place and has a cryptic name (all understand "transparency" less "alpha" ..more
the Layer menu really do not seems most intuitive place to search function
related to selections)
For usability may be good add to the "select by color" dialog a checkbox
"select transparency",..that checkbox if checked will simply
call the good old "alpha to selection" function (this from a developer's point
of view..from average user's point of view that will just "select the
to my logic "alpha to selection" may be well seen as a subset of "select by
color" (in this case will be "select by absence of colors " that as concept
seems strictly related )
i believe a "use airbrush" option for eraser tool and a "select transparency"
checkbox added to " select by color" will be both nice addition also for who
is no much interested to " paint with transparent colors"
then a question for Maciej Pilichowski..i understand you well?
a "airbrush-eraser" to allow to "airbrush transparent color" and a more
intuitive place and name for "select transparency" will realize your wishes?
