Chazzy Posted October 14, 2012 Share Posted October 14, 2012 Just been looking though your 'Popular Feature Requests' thread. Really like some of your proposed updates. Especially the Adjustment layers and Custom brushes. Do you have any plans to include an active zoom window, masks, and clipping masks? Most of these are standard in other programs and it would be a shame to see them omitted from paint.net. Active zoom windows are great for detailed editing as it displays the whole image in its own window, with a zoom slider at the bottom. When you drag the slider, a small box shows up in the active zoom window to show the area you have zoomed into, and allows you to move that box any where within the window itself to edit that certain area. Masks need no explanation as most people know about them. And clipping masks are the ability to sort of link two layers together. One could be a shape and the other a texture. And by clipping them together you add that texture just to the shape layer solely, and none of the other layers are affected. Both layers are fully intact as no real cutting has occurred so it is non-destructive so you can come back to it later and move the image you have clipped to the different position; be it the shape or texture layer.
