Slider scale for brush sizes

Recommended Posts

in Liquify Persona: The slider for brush size is divided into 2, 32, 64, 128, 256, 327...  This it's too roughly . Better would be: 2, 4, 8, 16, 24, 36, 48, 64, 128, ... .  It would also be better to increase / decrease the brush size in steps of 1 using the arrow keys (as implemented in PS).

Example:

To enlarge a pupil, a small brush size is required. But on the slider can be adjusted via mouse (tablet) only: 2px, 32px, 64px, 128 .... In this example, 12px is the best value. Scaling is therefore not practical.

Il serait également préférable d'augmenter / diminuer la taille du pinceau par pas de 1 en utilisant les touches fléchées (comme implémentées dans PS).

Good morning.

Click on the value (7 pix) and enter the desired value. Click OK.

Sincerely.

Of course, the brush size can be entered numerically using the keyboard. This only costs a lot of time and typing. Therefore my suggestion for improvement Liquify Persona.

What happened when you entered the liquefy persona, clicked into the value field for the brush and pressed you up (or down) answer?

 

On mine, it increments one number at a time. What happens on YOUR system?

Test:

1. Slider left for start value: 2px
2. place the cursor in the numeric field
3. press arrow key several times up resulated in 3 .. 4  .. 5 .. 6 .. 7px ...  (don't press RETURN!)
4. press arrow key several times down resulated in 7 .. 6 .. 5 .. 4 .. 3 .. 2px   (don't press RETURN!)

BUT:

1. The new size of the brush is not visual displayed or updated.

2. If the cursor is set in the image the arrow keys do not work anymore in this way. Then you can change the brush size only with "ALT-GR + ]" or "ALT-GR + [" but unfortunately not in steps of 1px.

Result:

The step sizes of the brush size are not practical and should be improved.
