Wish #282

wished on Sat, 6th Jun 2015 at 19:02:11 UTC

Unfortunately, the Chasys Draw program is totally not working on my computer (XP, 1.8 GHz, 1GB RAM).
I tried to crop a picture acoording to my selection, but nothing happened.
And I tried to select pixels via magic wand and delete them, but when I selected the delete command from the menu, also nothing happened. Fillig the space with white colour via paint bucket didnĀ“t work either..
And when I press "save", instead of just saving under the same name and location, a dialog box appears, where I have to choose a location.
Can anyone help me?

I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems using Chasys Draw IES.  
From your description above, I think you're trying to operate the tools using a selection-centric work-flow; this is not working out because those specific tools (Wand and Filling Paint) are not selection-centric in Chasys Draw IES: the Magic Wand erases pixels directly (as opposed to selecting them then requiring you to delete them as a separate step), while the Filling Paint uses the colors in the image as a boundary (as opposed to requiring the user to pre-select the area to be filled). Both tools also have multiple operation modes.  
If you have working experience using another image editor such as Adobe's Photoshop, I recommend that you go through the help documentation to familiarize yourself with the differences between Chasys Draw IES and the image editor you've been using. I further recommend that you keep the tool-tip hints enabled, they provide real-time guidance on how to use the various tools. If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact me at support@jpchacha.com.

I found twice a week the following nonreproducible Error in the event-log: Event ID 59 SideBySide
Error in manifest or policy file "c:\program files (x86)\john paul chacha's lab\chasys draw  
ies\Plugins\flt_ABR.dll" in line 10. Invalid XML-Syntax.
Occures since chasys_draw_ies_4_29_01 and still with chasys_draw_ies_4_30_01  
on my 64bit Win7 System, however Draw-IES always works fine, may be i am not using flt_ABR.dll.
No such errors with any other program. Thanks for your Chasys Draw IES.

I've found the invalid XML and fixed it. The fix will be available in the next version. Thanks for reporting the bug and for using Chasys Draw IES.

Have you checked the download section? There's a Dutch language file available for download.

For resampling I am always using Advanced resampling in combination with 5-Windows Sinc (Best)   and 9-Lancos Window.  
DrawIES only remembers "Advanced Resampling". Would make sense to me that DrawIES remembers the complete parameter combination. Thank you so much.

Noted, I'll make the necessary changes.

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:

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 support@jpchacha.com.

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.

Wish #257

wished on Mon, 12th Jan 2015 at 19:57:53 UTC

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)

This can be achieved using the normal sharpen effect by only selecting the "alpha" option.

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.

I like your programs but will you be incorporating 3D file viewing support in the future. I have a massive library of 3D content and a viewer program sounds a lot less memory intensive than a full blown application for this task.

I would love it if ChasysDraw could open and work with my A0 300dpi images. At the moment it can't.

Done. However, please note that at 140 mega-pixels per layer, you'll be working very close to the limits of 32-bit Windows.

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.

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.
