feature request: new type of gradient (reverse radial)


Recommended Posts

It would be nice if the gradients that are present in v3 had one more choice. As far as I can tell it is not possible to a gradient where the center has 0% transparent and the transparency increases outward in a circle. This is useful if e.g. you have a picture where the center (e.g. the face of someone) should be the most visible and everything around it should fade. AFAIK this type seems to be the opposite of the Radial gradient currently in Paint.Net v3

If this is possible, and it is just me who doesn't how to use the gradient feature well enough, I would appreciate if someone could tell me how it is done?

1) Just invert the values of the primary and secondary colors Transparency - Alpha and you'll get what you want.

2) I'm reversing the direction of the fade for the upcoming Beta 1 release. It just seems weird to me that the point I start drawing from is the transparency anchor instead of vice-versa.
