BmB23 Posted November 16, 2006 Share Posted November 16, 2006 Hi, I'm new here. I have a few qualms about the pen tool, I feel it's a tad limited. First there's the lack of feathering. Feathering would be really good. Using gaussian blur is too tedious and often gets you a subpar result that is not quite what you hoped for. It's limitations to 100 px, as well as a lot of other tools limit of 100 px could be a problem, especially with larger pictures. Lack of the ability to draw straight lines is a tad annoying, I know line tool can do that, but it is also a more tedious procedure and clumsy result. Transparancy looks really ugly with the clearly visible circles ontop of each other and you often have to take the transparancy really high (or opacity low) for it to actually look transparant. Some optional flash-ish smoothing of the line would be great, yeah, I know line tool can do smooth too, but only with four control points it's rather limited what you can do. I'd probably use The GIMP for all of these effects, but The GIMP sucks, don't get me wrong it's a good image editing software quite on par with photoshop. It's just the way it works with Windows is equivalent to that of a low threat virus. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
