Wishlist for development

Recommended Posts

I've been using paint.net for for some time now, and there are four things I'd like to see in paint.net:


* "Export as" -functionality. When you click export item, it would first of all remember the previous image format that was used (png for example) and automatically flatten the image on save, without affecting the working image. Also I'd like that export wouldn't change the name of the image I'm editing.

* "Duplicate image" .. Would duplicate the current image with settings and layers.

* "Autocrop image" .. would automatically crop useless transparent borders from image

* Resize handles on selection.. It would make life easier, if I could resize the selection and at the same time see the pixel size of the selection


Other than those, paint.net is great product. Huge thanks for your effort :)

Selections have resize handles. As you resize the selection dimensions are shown in the Status Bar.

Selections in Paint.NET follow the Photoshop model: selection drawing tools are separate from tools that modify only the selection, and separate again from tools that operate on the pixels in the selection.


So, once you've selected something with Lasso or Rectangle Select (etc.) you can then use the Move Selection tool to modify the selection, or the Move Selected Pixels tool to modify both the selection and the pixels inside of the selection.


Keyboard shortcuts make this a fluent transition, so be sure to try them out.
