Feature request: Selection management tools

Recommended Posts

I found this thread from last year that pretty much describes what I'm talking about.

Basically, most paint tools these days (GIMP, PSP, PS) let you shrink, grow, etc. your selections by a certain number of pixels. This type of function is nearly as useful as layering when working with complex images.

If you want I can post some screen shots to describe what I mean.

I agree. There have been many times I have wanted to do this.

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

Agreed. It's very useful and would definitely be a nice addition to Paint.NET

Another thing Paint.NET seems to miss is a "paste as transparant (selection)" feature, where you can paste something from your clipboard and all pixels of a certain color (in Paint Shop Pro this is your selected background color) are fully transparant.

Maybe I overlooked it or maybe there's another way of doing it, but it's a feature I often used in Paint Shop Pro.
