brush cursor visual feedback

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have the brush outline persist on screen (the one that shows up when you change the brush size). After you change the size of the brush, that feedback disappears and makes detail editing and masking difficult without seeing the edges of the brush. Not sure of this is possible, but it seems like it could get complicated, but with the new 120hz refresh rate on the new iPads...maybe?

Just wanted to support this request. Having the brush footprint visible helps me when retouching portraits. It's very common to apply brush sizes that cover naturally occurring contours of the body and face. Currently, it takes a lot of trial and error. Having this feature would speed up my process. 

 

I would suggest adding it as an option that can be toggled on/off in case some people find it obtrusive.

I, along with quite a few others, have requested this as well. I think they know we want it and just need to figure out a good way to implement it. Other top requests are modifier keys and non-destructive RAW editing

Perhaps they could use the selected brush size setting to reset the size of the current 'show touches' circle? Then use the brush colour setting to update the'show touches' colour. ¬¬

That way Show Touches would act as a useful brush cursor.

sorry to dig this up from the depths of time but +1 in this. Would be really useful to see what I’m doing when erasing/masking and precision brush strokes. Has there been an update on this?

 

cheers

yes i recently started working on affinity photo on my ipad and i noticed there is no brush preview while brushing . so it would be great if we get that function and also if we get brush angle control like Photoshop

have that would be great.

I'm very surprised this hasn't been done yet. Outline of the brush when painting and erasing is essential stuff. It's like painting with real tools but they are invisible.
