Make a WishWelcome to the Wishlist! This is where you get to tell me what you'd like to see in upcoming versions of software packages provided on this site.
I'm afraid I do not write the translation files myself; however, anyone is free to write a translation file for any language and I'll gladly host it for download. If you're willing to and have the time, perhaps you could write the first Slovak translation file and share it with the user community. Follow the link below for instructions:
You may use one of the existing language files as a template to start with:
save as .gif not working
smart resize does not work
.gif animation is not preserved
when used in any program language file is not working window resizing an image,install to USB, setting a graphic tablet and Autosave window when the program starts after the accident
Chasys Draw IES 4.28.05 windows 8.1 64bit
There's a patch for the GIF issues here:
Seems to be working fine for me. Have you selected the regions to preserve?
Language file Issues:
Which Language file? Please send a copy to email@example.com
The only issue I have with your outstanding product(which I use all the time), is it automatically opens with drawing tool tips and complex pointer turned on. Im forced to turn them off every time. Saving my settings from my last use would be nice. Thanks for a great app!
Hi, I've been unable to reproduce the problem; which version are you using? Kindly reply via firstname.lastname@example.org.
docking the windows, and possibly fixing the left click after a single right click in the image (if you click with the right button in the image, and then to *hide* the menu using the left click anywhere, the menu re-appears)
Hi, the right-click issue has been fixed.
The liquify effect is only somewhat what I was asking for, though it could be easily expanded to a very useful tool and not just an effect. The liquify effect is a warping tool, but it is not precise.
With the ability to grab and drag grid points to control the warping effect, I can level objects within layers in relation to each other, specially shape images such as text, or provide realistic spatial effects in image editing or combining. These powerful effects are almost impossible using a brush, or even region type point systems.
For example, say I wish to add text to a photo with a flat top and a perfectly curved bottom. I can use the circle text function to create the arc, but it may be too circular for my needs, and controlling the warp of the top to flatten the text has to be extremely precise to prevent the text from looking amateur and cartoonish. With the grid, I would use snap to grid and drag the corresponding points straight up until all of the letters were on a flat plain. I could then turn off the snap to grid feature and carefully adjust the bottom grid points to get the exact curve necessary.
I think too many people underestimate the usefulness and power of the warp tool and tend to think of it as more of a toy, when it is actually a powerful drawing and editing tool for someone that knows how to use it. I thought of trying to make such a warping tool as an 8bf plugin. However, a person needs to see more than the affected layer when applying the warp, in most cases, to get the desired effect right, so sending the handle to a single layer would be ineffective.
What would be great is a specific distortion tool, a grid-based digital image warping tool that creates a point based grid structure for a layer, and dragging a point on the grid pulls or pushes the pixels an equal amount. This type of tool allows for the creation of caricatures from a photo, or even extremely useful photo manipulation to get almost impossible to achieve localized effects otherwise.
If you want to know more about what I am talking about, the codeproject has an article and some c++ source-code for a rendering engine. Just Google "grid-based digital image warping", and the second result should be the codeproject article.
That's the Liquify effect. It's under Menu > Effects > Distortion > Liquify (Image Warping)
chasysDraw : drawing and painting tools are already good, now its time to expand animation features. I ask for [Xsheet] and [timeline]A feature / interface, both are for animation.
Something similar to Timeline is now in "work in progress" status.
Hi Sir John,
I wish you will strengthen the animation feature on Chasys Draw.
Frames, Timeline and layers features similar to adobe flash will be veeeery goood if implemented in next release of Chasys Draw.
And tons of thanks for this superb software.
Central Java, Indonesia.
Something similar to Timeline is now in "work in progress" status.
Hello from Russia, John! First, I'd like to thank you for your software. It's really nice.
As for wish, I'd like an improved grid snapping. I don't know, may be this feature is already included, but I don't see any snapping for brushes and path's control points...
Thanks, glad to know you like it. I've made the necessary changes, snap-to-grid will now affect all tools.
hi chassys, my acer laptop runs on vista starter, i wonder if my machine is capable of doing the cd labeling online? thanks!also i wish that chassys draw ies can run fully and greatly even on some old machine
Chasys Draw IES will run fine on Vista Starter. As for the CD Labelling, it should work okay as long as you have a LightScribe-capable CD/DVD burner and you've installed the LightScribe System Software.
On old machines -- I put a lot of effort into optimizing Chasys Draw IES so that it runs as efficiently as possible; additionally, I always try to make each new version run a bit faster than its predecessor on existing hardware. As long as you keep it up to date, Chasys Draw IES will give you reasonable performance even if your computer is a bit old.
Not a wish, just a huge THANK YOU for asking CNET not to pack it as part of their installer. I REFUSE to use that site, and any others that rebundle software with extra, malware, spyware, crapware, irritatingware and x@*%^$-ware. Sadly it's becoming a bad habit of major file repositories.
Again, thanks you very much. Well done!!!!!!!
I forgot one tool I would like to see.
10. An eraser with a configurable 'blend edge to transparent' and 'Blend to background' feature.
The blend to transparent eraser would be used to detect color, blend, and then soften a configurable amount of pixels from the edge to transparency. It would help a lot with merging multiple cut-out photo elements into a realistic whole.
The blend to background would do the same thing, except that instead of softening to transparent, it would soften the color to the background color, no matter what the background color currently is as it probably will change in a photo from region to region.
I've implemented something similar as the Edge Treatment Tool; please try it out and tell me what you think.
Chasys Draw IES: I would like to see a few tools.
1. A gradient fill tool.
2. An 'Open Project' option at startup.
3. Clickable Foreground/Background blocks on color palette.
4. An 'Actual Size' feature under 'view' that will show the layer at it's true size in relation to the screen.
5. A 'Merge' button on the layer window to speed up the process dramatically.
6. User modifiable, dockable ribbon bar(s) for tools and functions used constantly.
7. Tooltips that, when turned off, they stay off when Chasys Draw next loaded.
8. A 'Reset' to factory settings button for the palette.
Now, for the hard one...
9. The ability to load and use GIMP plugins.
Notes so far... Chasys Draw IES is the most powerful and useful free Drawing software available. Yes, I have used GIMP and Paint.net, but am not that impressed with either. In comparison to Photoshop, Chasys Draw IES is the most powerful free option.
1. ** This exists as the Full-page Gradients Tool.
2. ** Noted, will consider adding this.
3. ?? What should they do when clicked?
4. ** Will be available in the next version, for both the main window and the preview window.
5. ** Noted, will consider adding this.
6. ** The current user interface doesn't support this, but I'll keep this in mind.
7. ** Will be available in the next version.
8. ** This exists as the Load Default button (button with circular arrow).
9. ** That's a tough one. However, it has been on my "to do" list for a while now and I'll continue working on it.
- Too short buttons for german language everywhere these words occure: (word + german translation)
When loading German language file and you choose a sub-menu of the following toolboxes:
'Effect Brush, Pen and Path Selection, Lines, Curves, Blocks, Decorative Gradients'
and want to change for example from smoke to shadow you get the following error:
Error at 0x00457D07:
Access Violation Reading at 0x00000000
Attempting to continue execution...
Thank you for the report, I'll work on it.
