Re: [Gimp-user] Change canvas size fill with option

(1)  Create a new image of any size (200 x 200 for example).
(2)  Click the "+" by Advanced options, and note the "Fill with:" combo box
/ dropdown.
(3)  Click OK.
(4)  Go to Layer -> Transparency -> Add alpha channel (if you didn't select
it during (2)).
(5)  Go to Image -> Canvas Size.
(6)  Change it to 300 width and 300 height, and click "Center".
(7)  Select "All layers" under "Resize layers:"
(8)  Click "Resize".

Note that there is a transparent border around the 200 x 200 center.  It
would be nice to have the same "Fill with:" option available in (2) under
the "Advanced Options".

Best regards,
Rick C. Hodgin

I thought a nice feature would be to add "Create a New Image" to resize
canvas options (and specifically the "Fill with:" options -- background
color, foreground color, white, transparency).

Right now it forces transparency if you're using an alpha channel and you
must paint.  And if there are pixels at the edge of the new transparent
area which fall within the threshold of the paint bucket, it spills over.

Sorry... but I don't get what you are describing.

Can you make a list of steps you currently have to do to achieve what
you want, and a list of steps you'd like to do instead?
