 Great idea!

 What about include GPS on Gimp official release?

  One thing I noticed, is that presets for gimp-mixbrush-tool are
  included; these presets will only work if your GIMP has been patched

 Why gimp-painter patch is not included on Gimp?
 There are some problems about that?


  Wow, this is really nice. Finally someone discovered the power of tool

 Indeed! Now, I don't really want to stop the fun pouring in :), but
 this is probably because nobody had time to create a better UI for
 them. With all respect due a 3rd level menu item is something people
 rarely like to go for :( I wonder if Peter's usability research
 covered that. Hopefully GPS will trigger someone's programming mind :)


It would be really nice to see this in the official Gimp releases, indeed.
It might also be a good idea to translate the manual to english as well.
You can more or less extract what you need from it, but english is a
language a lot more people can understand to a certain degree.
I've only recently started to get in the comfort zone with gimp, and
things like this just make me happy :)

You know, that is an excellent idea, but unfortunately aside from the
brushes folder options, which I think are really needed, and pardon me if
this is going a little offtopic, but the brushes themselves are still slow.
If I draw a circle in gimp, no matter how I tweak the brush ( that includes
spacing the brush), the line is hooked while in photoshop it is smooth on
the same computer. On my home pc, where I still run only gimp 2.3 it is
smoother in gimp 2.3.

 That would be one solution.

 I would suggest to make it an optional package.

Good idea. better idea for post 2.4 metinks, would be a simple brush
manager. So you can enable brushes, individually and as sets.

[Gimp-developer] brush manager

2007-08-19 Thread M Tieleman
With these new cool options for the gimp 2.4, I can't seem to find
information about whether or not there will be a brush manager.
In gimp 2.2, it's getting rather messy in that folder when you have a number
of brushes, it gets hard to organize, plus it seems to add to the time gimp
takes to load.

There is a python script around that provides a kind of brush management, so
you can toggle sets on and off.
Basically it works like this: you have an active brush folder, which is the
directory you tell gimp to load the (extra) brushes from, and there is the
folder where all the brushes, and sets are located. the script creates a
small gui with a list and a checkbox. you check which brushes you want
active, it then copies those to the active brush folder, and after a brush
reload, you have your brushes at your disposal.
Obviously if you uncheck them, the script removes them from the active brush

I've googled quite a bit, and can't find a thing about brush management,
well, rather a brush manager for the gimp above version 2.2 (which includes
I'm rather curious, is a brush manager in the works? that would be a very
nice addition.
