Affinity Photo: brush picker context menu

Recommended Posts

just wondering if i'm the only one missing a context menu to quickly pick brushes right on the canvas, adjust their parameters and so on instead of having to dig around in the interface for the settings in the context toolbar and the brushes palette.


there's of course hotkeys to change brush parameters but i find quite often that a little more visual guidance is really handy, especially when you're not just changing brush radius all the time.


example from photoshop: quick access to brush library and basic brush settings on sliders


here's a nifty one from zbrush (more of a 3D program) that includes links to a lot more options probably irrelevant to a 2D program but most notably has a mini color selector which i think would be really handy (especially with a little palette of color swatches that mirror the swatches tab).



would be happy to see something like this pop up in photo at some point. :)

I love the idea of a pop-up Custom palette which the user can populate with their preferred modules like brush, color palette and swatches, and perhaps other studio palettes as well
