Re: [Gimp-developer] new interaction project starting...


A very nice feature for people who use Gimp for drawing (like me)
would be to have brush size adjustable by simply holding a key and
dragging the mouse/pen anywhere on the canvas. This would then grow or
shrink the brush, and you could judge the size from the outline of the
brush as your drag. It's a quick and accurate way of adjusting the
brush size used. You can see this feature in Blender (go to UV
Editing, create New image in the left panel, and hold F and drag to
adjust the brush size).

The same could be applied to opacity, but is most useful for brush sizes.
