Bug ID: 368973
Summary: "Group layers" operation should be more clever about
Platform: Debian stable
Component: Layer Stack
When one use "Group layers", it create a new layer with compositing mode
"Normal". This does not mix well with "Wavelet decompose" feature.
I suggest "Group layers" to look at compositing mode of the parts being
grouped, e.g. just copy the first groupee's mode.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open some image or create it and paint someting there
2. Image->Wavelet decompose
3. Select scale layers, say, from "Scale 2" to "Scale 4"
4. Press Ctrl+G ("Quick layer group")
Image changes, "Scale 5" and "Residual" no loger in effect. Compositing mode
for newly created group layer is "Normal".
No effect on resulting imag. Compositing mode for newly created group layer is
"Grain Merge", like of "Scale 2".
Workaround: manually set the mode to "Grain Merge" in layer properties.
With appearance of the "Wavelet decompose" filter, non-Normal layers might
become more commonplace and user might run into problem even without knowing
about layer compositing modes.
