[Gimp-developer] need help with bug #464466 (downscaling quality)

I wholly agree. Those un-editable round brushes are constantly in the way. Instead having a nice set of different(square, star, calligraphy etc) parametric brushes that are editable from the start would make much more sense. Not entirely sure if that is needed. Texture brushes people

Hi; Thanks for the reference Valerie. I'm Filsd. :) I agree with you. GIMP needs a new and revised set of default Brushes. And in my experience as a professor of CG Art (using only open-source: GIMP, blender...) I find many people that don't even think in GIMP as a Digital Painting program

I strongly disagree. It is a lot more convenient to pick a brush of the right size from a list of brushes than to always scale the brush. I guess we have drastically different usages of brushes though. I NEVER use a brush of exactly 17 pixels. In fact, a brush of exactly 17 pixels is pretty
