Could you add the "PCD format to the list of supported image types for CHASYS_DRAW?



Hi Cliff,
Consider it done. I'll start working on it immediately.

Like the "image hoses" in GIMP? Fully supported -- try the "redball_hose.cd5" custom brush to see what I mean.

Chasys Draw IES Converter
(I just discovered this wonderful piece of software, when I was looking for a program able to create JPEG2000 files without discarding all the metadata: I am still amazed to have to go to Kenya to foind one !!!)
I didn't find a way to resize images with the converter (big batch !), keeping the printed size, changing the resolution (DPI) and adjusting the pixel sizes accordingly. (a resize by a ratio (percentage) would be nice also). I apologize if I just missed the option.
Best regards,

Thanks for pointing that out. Those options will be available in the next version.

This looks very promising.  I would be suprised if this is not already here.  Make it possible to edit each object without having to have a new layer... Scale/color/location.  Like Inkscape or OfficeDraw.

There are two types of image editing applications, namely Raster and Vector.

Raster graphics editors manipulate and store images in the form of pixels.
Examples include Chasys Draw IES, GIMP, Adobe Photoshop and Corel PhotoPaint.

Vector graphics editors manipulate and store images in the form of geometrical primitives such as points, lines, curves, shapes and polygons.
Examples include Inkscape, OfficeDraw, Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW.

What you've described above is vector-based image manipulation. Although Chasys Draw IES has some vector capabilities, it is primarily a raster graphics editor, which makes this level of vector-based editing out of scope.

Chasys Draw IES can be very productive and it would be even more if you implement the following functions:
1. Brush size set by pressing control or shift key while moving mouse/pen (like Krita)
2. Instantaneous pop-up window with tool and color palette (right click or pen button, or any other... - Similar to Krita)
3. Onion-skin for animation (good for traditional animation)

I've added onion-skin animation.

Chasys Draw IES

It would be helpful if you could add an option that allows batching (add/delete), rename, and resize photos in one place.  Then, of course, save them to a folder.  If possible, it should be done with a minimum number of clicks.



That options exists, it's called Chasys Draw IES Converter. You can launch it from either the start menu or from Artist by going to the menu item File >> Launch Application >> Chasys Draw IES Converter.

> Hi, 
> There's a "recolor" option under "effects brush" that does exactly that.

If this is a _brush_ effect, it seems I will have to move over the entire image, to have all pixels of the same color re-colored. I simply want to select and apply another color for all pixels of the same color at once.

For instance, I want to re-color all grey areas of a form to green. In Paint I would have to make the grey color transparent, clear the image, fill it with a green color and then paste the grey-transparent image.

I just want to say: turn all grey pixels into green ones.

Kind regards,

Stefan Boumans

In that case, use the "Replace Color" effect
Effects >> Color >> Replace Color

In the long list of current features, I haven't spotted the simple one I need more often than others: in screen prints I sometimes just want to replace a single color by another color. I normally do this in MS Windows Paint, by making the current color transparent and then fill the background by the new color and paste the image again. It would be _very_ convenient if I could to this with a single specific tool.

Kind regards,

Stefan Boumans

There's a "recolor" option under "effects brush" that does exactly that.

Hi I like Chasys draw to use for animation. I would like to use the any-rotation tool easier when I am animating. So I would like that it could be a short-cut key, or a toolbox item. This would be very handy when I am animating legs. Thank you so much!

Hi, there's an upcoming feature that will make this easier for you. I'll keep you posted.

Wish #163

wished on Sat, 5th Jan 2013 at 04:47:10

Ok then, at first, Level and Alpha.1/2 should be removed, for they make no sense. One setting for opacity should be enough. But above this, opacity must work for all Tools, especialy for Brush and Pencil.
Also there has to be be a way to control the opacity by pen pressure, and/or width and opacity simultaneously. (sorry for my bad english, hope it's understandable...)

Thank you very much

I beg to differ -- both alphas are required for some tools, e.g. Shape (options on column 4), Custom Shape (col 4), GT Shapes (all), Full-page Gradients (alpha gradients, col 3). Experiment a little with these tools (using different values for alpha 1 and 2) and you'll see why you need the second alpha.
NB: Please note that the way Chasys Draw IES handles transparency very very different from what you find in other image editors. Specifically, Chasys Draw IES treats the alpha channel as a standard color channel (and not as an additional channel or mask) -- as a result, all images in Chasys Draw IES have a full alpha channel all the time, and transparency is included in all operations, by all tools, by all plug-ins and in all image modes. Alpha values are not shared, and each color parameter needs its own alpha value (so, for the current colors, you have color1/alpha1 & color2/alpha2 instead of color1 & color2 & alpha). Furthermore, alpha values in Chasys Draw IES do not represent opacity -- they represent transparency (i.e. the inversion of what you find in other editors).

Be able to run Photoshop actions or at least have an action engine to record repetative tasks.
Thank you

Hi, I'm giving this serious consideration, Chasys Draw IES needs some sort of scripting engine.

I wish to have Chasys Draw IES Artist a better UI design - have it more solid. But Chasys works amazing! really amazing. Hands down.

Do you mean more solid as in a single window without floating toolbars? Please email me -- support@jpchacha.com

In transforms, could you make Skew and Perspective be able to warp the image even greater without the image shrinking to greatly?

Wish #158

wished on Thu, 1st Nov 2012 at 16:57:50

I like the tools, but the layout is a little cluttered for my personal taste.  (Chasys Draw IES Artist, v4.00.01)

Is there a way to set a preference for where the floating tools should always be, so that I can put them to the side and keep them there? Also, can I reposition the green box at the top left, and the grey boxes at the bottom left? I'd really like to be able to move them all around and 'dock' them out of the way of whichever project I'm working on.

Apart from that -- and a wish for layer opacity sliders, as in Wish #153 -- I love the tools so much! Thank you so much for making this and sharing it with everyone. God bless you, sir.

Hi, I've added an option to hide the gadgets (grey boxes) and the status icons (green box). I'll seewhat I can do about the positions of the floating toolbars.

I just ALMOST finished a 5 day project in Chasys Draw IES. I saved it and exited the program because my puter was running very slow. Now I opened it up to edit one more thing and it won't let me change anything. I wish I could have those 5 days back of work I wasted. Now I have to start all over again. Did I do something wrong? My wish is to get it back so I can edit it a little more.

Did you save the project as a CD5 file? Kindly contact me via email at support@jpchacha.com.

I just started to use your Draw IES but I loaded the German version. Who did that terrible work? A translation software? It must have been a dyslexic person. Sorry but there is a need for a better German

The German language file is a machine translation, which is why Chasys Draw IES advises you not to use it. If you're comfortable using Chasys Draw IES in English, please do. Just go to Configure/Language on the menu then select Default)

Hello, I testet a lot of the competition, but Chacys Draw I like the best.
Just one thing Iám slightly missing: An opacity-slider for each layer.
Would be very nice to get one one of these days.
Thank you for great work!

Noted, I'll see what I can do about that.

Hi! For Chasys Draw IES, support of CMYK color mode would be really great - especially for use with professional 4c printing (since GIMP nor any other freeware can't handle these files) thanks ... Franz

Wish #150

For Chasys Draw IES Artist I think it would be handy if you could recognise the synaptics touch pad on many laptops and maybe other brands as simple grpahics tablets and where supported by the touch pad API recognise and use the touch presure data for a more natural drawing, smudging experience on hardware that supports the feature.

I've heard that there are some touch-pads that have special hardware-specific drivers that support this functionality. If you install such a driver for your laptop's touch-pad, you should be able to use it with Chasys Draw IES as a simple pressure-sensitive graphics tablet without any problems.

Wish #147

I have a couple of wishes:

1. The use of either gimp plug-ins (Python) or scripts (Schema).

By the way, I really appreciate that you have included the .8bf PhotoShop plugins. The use of windows version gimp plugins and/or schema scripts would increase the functionality of the program immensely. Numerous commercial quality tools already exist for free.

2. Lasso and 'Magnetic Lasso' selection tools.

By lasso I mean a line which is drawn around and object, then the curser changes into a brush which is used to paint over the desired colors to be selected. The selection is then changed when finished to all instances of the selected colors within the original lasso. This is an extremely powerful tool, and worlds ahead of any simple 'select by color' type tool.

By 'magnetic Lasso', I refer to a vector point based lasso that snaps to the nearest edge between any two vector points. The points are placed manually around an object in an image, and the selection is considered complete when the last point is placed on the first.

These two tools are essential for fast and efficient object selection, as the 'magic wand' types of tools, concerning most complex photographic objects, selects not only the unwanted colors but also selects colors outside of the desired area. Otherwise there is no choice but to erase pixel by pixel next to an object with a size one eraser brush.

3. A downloadable native example plugin template with a how-to document for IES plugins.

This may at least allow for easy porting of other plugins, such as gimp etc., into native IES format. It could be simply an example workable plugin source code with the various calling/passing conventions, etc.. clearly remarked in the code. However, an example with a template would be really nice.


I have to say that Chasys Draw IES could easily be better than both gimp and photoshop. It is very close already.

Ease of native plugin design combined with the ability to use the competitions plugins combined with the lasso tools, and you are there. Adobe watch out, because Chasys Draw IES is coming!

Let me know your conclusion through e-mail, if that is not a problem. pauldude000@yahoo.com

Hi Paul,
Thanks for your suggestions. Please find my responses below:
1. The use of either gimp plug-ins (Python) or scripts (Schema). 
I'll see what I can do. 
2. Lasso and 'Magnetic Lasso' selection tools. 
(a) I'll contact you via email for details on this.
(b) Magnetic Lasso is already available, but under a different name -- it's one of the options of the Pen and Path tool'
3. A downloadable native example plugin template with a how-to document for IES plugins.
There are some in the help file under 'SDK/Sample Code' and in the installation zip file under 'Source'. Please check them out and let me know if that's sufficient.

Ciao,ho apprezzato il tuo programma "Chasys_draw",ma come vedi ho dificolta con la lingua inglese.Quando ci sarà una versione in "italiano" ? Grazie.

Ciao. Non c'è ancora una versione italiana, ma posso creare un file di lingua (italian.lang) per voi se non ti dispiace gli errori grammaticali che contengono traduzioni automatiche, a volte. Se questo è bene, vi prego di contattarmi via email all'indirizzo support@jpchacha.com. Grazie.
