different shape for Eraser


Recommended Posts

You can use the rectangle selection to select where you want to erase, then hit delete

Just so we're clear on the differences:

The Eraser resets the Alpha channel* - the RGB color information persists (it just can't be seen).

Selecting and deleting an area replaces the current RGB color information with #FFFFFF AND sets the Alpha channel to zero. So pixels are filled with #FFFFFF00

* Not always to zero. The Alpha setting is linked to that of the Primary color. Try this: Set Primary Alpha to 2 & Erase a solid color = erasing with soft edges!

Good point. If the alpha channel is needed, make your rectangle selection and erase with the eraser tool.

I use a similar method when I want a square/rectangle area erased. When I've erased a portion, I then select within that space a rectanglular/square area and copy and then paste. Once the paste is done move it to another area and if need be, resize it. It's not an eraser per se, but it works equally well.

EDIT:

Here's an image of what I've described above:
