  1. +1 for adding this to Photo. I'm becoming quite a fan of using it over Photoshop, but this is a very important feature for a professional workflow and is a deal breaker for me. Back to Adobe for now...
  2. The exponential growth is definitely great and PS has that too. It just grows by power of 2 in integer form. No reason integers and exponential growth are mutually exclusive.
  3. Thanks for the very thorough response! The preset brushes things sounds like an OK work-around. What do you mean by X-Mouse? I hope they eventually add a preference to disable partial-pixel amounts in brush size. It doesn't make any sense for making purely raster art, and it's odd that so many things seem to snap to the whole amounts except brackets (which I would say is the fastest way to change brush size on a keyboard). It might seem a little nit-picky, but after using my workflow for 15 years, it's a big slow down to switch. If you're listening, Affinity, I would appreciate more customization options for things like this in the future. You would have a new convert with some more preferences on the tools.
  4. Hey, thanks for the response. Unfortunately I'm not having any luck with that. Holding down shift and alt didn't seem to have any effect on the bracket keys. I also don't get anything from the arrow keys (they move the layer around). It's good to know about the scroll wheel working in whole numbers, but I would really prefer a way to get the bracket buttons to do it that way so I don't have to keep moving my mouse up to the size control over and over again.
  5. Hi there, I'm new to Photo (experienced photoshop user, though). It seems by default when using the brush tool it will automatically crop pixels that would be drawn outside the canvas. This means when drawing a soft edged shape that extends beyond the canvas for instance, if you want to move that shape later the edges of it that ended up outside the canvas aren't there and were never drawn. I'd like a way to turn this off and have the brush draw outside the canvas as it works in photoshop. Is this possible? Thanks,
  6. Hello, I've been trying out Photo lately. I'm an experienced Photoshop user looking to potentially switch. One of the hang ups I've had so far is that the increase/decrease hotkeys [ & ] adjust the brush size by fractional amounts rather than whole numbers (so you get 2.3 > 3.1 > 4.2, etc instead of 2 > 3 > 4). I do a lot of pixel art, and this is rather problematic for that. Photo's awesome preview of what your brush will draw if you click makes this slightly less of an issue, but I still really dislike it and was wondering if there's a way to set this to only use whole pixel amounts? Thanks,
