Re: [Gimp-developer] now: project ideas, was: unified transform tool

One thing I wish Gimp had is a better eyedropper tool for checking
color values. That is the one thing, practially the only thing, that
PhotoShop had (and presumably still has) that I wish Gimp had. The
PhotoShop eyedropper tool simultaneously showed RGB, CMYK, and LAB
values, at user-settable 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit floating point
precision. Right now if I want to find a LAB value for a color I have
to export the image and open it with CinePaint or Krita.

Another feature that would be nice (if it doesn't already exist and I
just haven't found it yet), is the ability to highlight different
"Zones" in an image. Lightzone had that ability. It's a pretty nice
tool to have when working with curves and levels to alter image
tonality, especially for people with monitors that are not properly
calibrated/color-managed and so can't be relied on to give good visual

It seems that folks who create textures for 3D projects really want us
to build advanced features on top of the new save/export model.

One such feature is mentioned in the GSoC2013 page: being able to
export/overwrite from sets of layers.

it would not be bad if some more ideas popped up.
