Option to change checkerboard colors

Recommended Posts

Hello there! There is a similar request in another topic in this forum, which is now closed, and I couldn't find any topics on the subject showing if there is a solution.

 

Now for my problem:

 

Imagine I have the following image:

Now imagine I have hundreds more like it (meaning white foreground in transparent background) and I'm adjusting every one of them. Which I am. It's not very readable.

 

Adding a layer to every file I open, then editing, then removing the layer, then saving the file is definitely not a good workflow.

 

Is there a solution or workaround for this, one that doesn't involve adding and removing a layer for every time a file is opened?

 

If not, would you consider adding an option to select the checkered board colors? I know this is a very specific case that happens only with very few color arrangements.

 

Thanks.

 

PS: I'm not trying to spam, but since the other topic was closed without any explanation, I'm trying again with a fresh one. Thanks again.

Don't hold your breath getting an alternative solution. You are within the minority that sees this an issue, and in terms of Paint.NET development, there are so many things to do with a higher priority.

I closed it, as per our community rules.

The proper thing to do is to create a new topic; which you have now done. :)

Whoops. There's always an internal debate between reusing similar topics so as to not pollute the forum, but the rules are clear. Thanks for the clarification, I definitely should have read the rules 😅

 

Not knowing the code, this seems like a pretty simple modification.

 

Having been a UI developer for a long time, .net even, I know that what looks simple to users most of the time isn't so from the development side.

 

With that in mind, I really wish this would be looked at and that it would be deemed simple to solve. It would make the lives of us few a lot better. This way I just can't use Paint.net for this task, though it would be a much better (read: lighter) fit than, say, Gimp.

 

Thanks :)

This statement is contradictory. Never presume. The code base for PDN is a lot larger and more complex than you might think.

If I was you, I'd learn the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + I (invert colors).

As someone that worked with Krita source code. Can confirm. Even seemingly small stuff can be difficult to create.
