What feature do you think Pdn needs the most?

I also feel that the people voting for Not keeping Help are not the people that use it, as noted elsewhere they don't post to the Forums.

The help is not being removed. It is being moved online. Get your facts straight before complaining.

I just had to use MS Paint to finish a graphic for work.

Can we get a Save As type for "Bitmap (BMP 256 color)"?

I know you already have the routines for making good looking 256 color graphics in the GIF code...

Should be a snap, yes?

Adding to the lasso comment above, what about a straight lasso, for instance using right click to draw straight line for the selection as well as left to free-draw? That way square/rectangle/circle aren't the only shapes available.

I think(?) I might have heard this elsewhere but can't confirm.

1. That isn't "one of my most often used features in photoshop".

2. There's a plugin for that.

o.k. maybe not most often used, but it really is one of the features i need photoshop for. i did not find any other program that would do this thing so easily and effortlessly.

and no, the proposed plug-in does not cut it. actually you have to move the *opposite* corners of the selection in the plug-in to compensate for the perspective. and not on the real image but on a small thumbnail of the image in the plug-in window. not really intuitive and easy to use at all.

btw, i use it for cropping pictures of slides taken with a camera during presentations, lectures, etc..

A channel window that can toggle show/hide, lock/unlock, creative/remove any (R/G/B/A..) channel.

Hmm. A check box in the Layer Properties window, so you can lock a layer, and can’t edit it by accident might bee nice.

+1.

But I think it's coming in v4 with the other stuff .

This might have been discussed here, but it is getting late and I did not take the time to go through 4 pages worth of stuff...

Any chance we could get a strecth tool? That is the only thing in "MS Paint" that I occasionally used that is missing (maybe I just don't know how to do it).

By strecth I am referring to the ability to select an area, then grab a side and move the selection perpendicular in that direction. This obviously just grows the selected portion of the image in that direction. That type of feature can be useful and seems like it would be easy to code.

This is the best image edit tool I have ever used though... :-) Photoshop is about like trying to use a heat seeking missile when all I need is a rubberband to shoot the guy sitting next to me. ;-)

Thanks and great work,

Tim

I would really like to be able to switch off tablet pressure sensitivity. Sometimes that feature drives me crazy. Even better would being able to switch tablet pressure sensitivity between brush width, nothing, and alpha.

My English is not very good but I’ll try, a think it will be more easy to select the secondary colour by simply select the colour using the right mouse button and the primary colour using the left mouse button avoiding to select on the pallet if you want to select the colour to the primary or secondary colour. Hope you understand what I’m trying to say

First of, I know most of these have been mentioned, but I will list my requests here anyway. Repetition is usually a good guide to who many wants a certain feature.

Things that I think would make Paint.net better:

1. the ability to right click while dragging to cancel the current action (or left clicking if you are drawing with the secondary color)

2. Eraser has independent brush width.

3. The ability to make new layers on the bottom of the stack as well as the top

4. A export current layer option (saves only the selected layer)

5. When selecting an area, the ability to hold down a key to switch to move selected pixels immediately after selecting.

All that being said, it is still a wondeful program. :D
