Weird circle

Recommended Posts

Trying to get a small symmetrical circle using entire pixels (antialiasing Disabled) is rather more difficult than it seems. This post by PDN Rick Brewster explains https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/111309-1-pixel-width-circle-drawing-enhancement-needed/?do=findComment&comment=530603

 

If you toggle the antialiasing ON (from :AntiAliasingDisabled:  to :AntiAliasingEnabled: in the toolbar) you'll get a much nicer circle BUT the width won't strictly be one pixel.

As I already said, the circles were PERFECTLY FINE before, without anti-aliasing. This started happening a few days ago. I really need 1-pixel wide circles, not anti-aliased ones.

I just don't understand why it happens on all versions now. I thought it's a bug in the newest version.

 

This issue has been around forever.

 

Here is a thread from 2016 (mentioning a thread from 2010) about the issue: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/109003-can-the-circle-tool-be-improved/

 

 

Anyway...

 

Here is one solution: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/113602-single-pixel-width-circle-solution/?tab=comments#comment-552407

 

 

Or, you could draw a circle and select the left half of the circle, copy it, paste it and use my plugin Effects > Flip Horizontal to mirror image the half, and position it for use.

I think it has something to do with how the circle's outline is drawn. 

I used the circle tool and I changed the transparency of the outline, and as I changed it, some pixels that should not have been part of the outline became opaque.
