As stated in the topic heading: Having the capability to draw straight lines with the Brush tool.
Click at the beginning of the location for the straight line with the Brush tool, then click at the end location with the Brush tool while holding down the “Shift” key. (Just like Photoshop.)
This feature of course would be very valuable for masking linear sections of a subject - currently there is no option other than manual drag - not the most efficient~precise approach for long segments.
Currently most of us do not have a lot of votes left - if any - to show support for features we like (possibly that may change in the near future, at least in some small fashion). Clearly this particular request is not going to light up the switchboards compared to other “major” features; but I think it is very useful.
There presently is no way to “vote” or “like” on a feature request using Discourse. Hence this post immediately under the original request, which could serve as a model until Discourse allows such a format.
By “liking” the post (by the OP) such as this one immediately underneath a request You can show your support for a feature for which You either do not want to give up a precious vote - but think is worthwhile; or You are out of votes but want to indicate it is a good~great idea worthy of consideration by the Dev team.
In essence we would be creating a two-tier approval system. I would think an idea that could garner a fair amount of “likes” would be noticed by the “Powers that Be” - and we have nothing to lose compared to the current set-up.
Note: “+1” does not register in the database - but “likes” do.
i think a self chosen donorplace would be first thing to accomplish to complete the dust removal tool, the clone tool.
we don’t want to overload the script writers.
just as a side remark, do we/or DxO for that matter, want a lot of pixel editter tools like photoshop has and become a full compatitor of that? Or keep the focus on sharp, clean images out a rawfile?
don’t get me wrong i don’t complain if its develope towards a full grown raw/pixel edittor, but they started just jet from a raw edittor towards a extra local (pixel editor) capability.
May dxo staff could make a list of long term achievements and short term goals.
So we/they can line up the ducks . sort out the features for this year and long term.
I’m not a person who can talk about the long/short terms of achievements (here we should ask @CaptainPO ) but as for clone functionality for the inpainting (Repair tool) we’ve got it in the backlog but I can’t tell you anything about the time of the implementation.
thanks for the reply,
i was noticing that the featurerequest list was growing fast and wide spread.
This is a normal aspect if you ask us what we want to see have in our dxo application. we go wild and enthousiast.
in a other post i read that a dxo staff member wrote to cleanup the requestposts a bit. What’s a good thing. Don’t get me wrong i am one of them and a lot of requests i see posted i think owh, that would be great, nice , good to have.
i don’t want to be offend or outsmart anyone but i understand that a overflow of requests are clutting the progres.(if i get that long to do list for housemaintenance from my wife i just stop and play dead… ) so devide, presenttool improvements , Short term,and newtool wishlist.
Yes, we really need that feature, it makes masking much easier & faster. Especially when masking buildings. & while I am here, I’d like to have the colour profiles of the Ricoh GRs, like positive film, High Contrast B&W etc & a better adaptation of the Fujifilm simulations. Thank you.
