Wish #261

wished on Tue, 20th Jan 2015 at 03:55:49 UTC

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.

hi, just to let you know that this works in Linux, via WINE (https://www.winehq.org) version: wine-1.7.2


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)

sharpen edges filter in sharpen catagory

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.

Wish #251

wished on Tue, 6th Jan 2015 at 03:57:32 UTC

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.

Panorama stiching

Wish #248

wished on Tue, 25th Nov 2014 at 13:25:35 UTC

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.

Hi Torif,
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.

Wish #234

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!!!!!!!

Wish #224

wished on Wed, 21st May 2014 at 04:57:10 UTC

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.

Wish #223

wished on Wed, 21st May 2014 at 04:18:39 UTC

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.

Hi, I use a CAD program and it has some extremely useful facilities, parallel lines, lines at set angles etc.
Have you any plans to include CAD-like tools?

I'm afraid not, Chasys Draw IES is intended to be an image editor, so CAD features are not on the roadmap

Wish #203

wished on Thu, 12th Dec 2013 at 09:19:44 UTC

more shadow options: to left, to up...
extrude figures as 3d
gradients for a determined area, not just for the entire layer
many autoshapes,as stars with 3-6 pointers, arrows...
posibility to insert copied text from msword for example
different size/character/color of text in the same layer
posibility to resize layers dragging the margins/corners
thank tou very much, it is anyway a very good program

[shadows/extrude/gradient] -- will see what I can do  
[stars] -- this features exists, you can do 3-1024 points, use "level" setting  
[copied text] -- this features exists  
[different text in same layer] -- will see what I can do  
[resize layers by dragging] -- feature exists, use "resize" tool
