Re: [Gimp-developer] [Gimp-user] Why so COMPLICATED?

Original message below.  I see a good feature recommendation here.  Sliders
for fuzzy selection in the select Tool Options dialogs.  I think it would
be useful.

Hello.  I've tried using GIMP many times, yet I've accomplished very
given all of GIMP's functionality.  For example:

If I want to select part of an image and copy it to another area or to a
image/layer, and also FEATHER the edges, here's how I'd do it in an old
app I often used years ago:

1. Select the area.
2. Hold Ctrl while moving selection with Move tool.
3. Use the slider to soften the edges to my liking.
4. Press Enter to anchor selection.  Done.

And there were sliders also for opacity and other things.  So very SIMPLE
because the prog. was designed very intuitively.  How would I accomplish
same in GIMP?  Well, most of the time, I WOULD ACCOMPLISH NOTHING!  At
best, I'd
enter values into the box, not like the result, enter new values, repeat.
that's on a good day.

PLEASE, I beg you, somebody write a SCRIPT/PLUGIN that allows the use of
exactly as described above!  I desperately want to be a HAPPY GIMP user,
but I'm
growing ever more hopeless.  I don't want to turn on my older PC just to
use a
graphics app that actually lets me get things done.  Thank you.
