What’s New in Version 3.25

3.25 Fixes a serious bug with the explode brushes in 3.2

The news: Glitch, Kaleidoscope in Deform, three new Pixelate and Artistic brushes. Save and import brush mask. Overall brushes organization in groups, many new brushes.

As you test the new Artistic brushes, I would like to note that in general they are in development state (beta), but I offer them to you so you can use them right now without more delays.

There are 7 parameters for Artistic brushes:

– Size: size of the brush
– Intensity: color contrast
– Dib structure: zero will flat the brush, 1 will display the details of the brush e.g. shadows, embossed, edges. Not all the brushes have such details. But flowers have, move the slider to 1)
– Size Jitter: will vary the size of the brush
– Lightness of the brush
– Color Jitter: will vary the color of the stroke
– Edge: will show or not the edge of the brush

Good presets to use before going there: Flated:2 quantizes the colors, and after you finish Sharpen:6 will raise the paint. But you can use all kinds of effects, before and after.

There is not undo or eraser brush tool for now. You just re-brush in the region you would like to change. Information about the color is “semi” extracted from the original. In extreme cases you can use the masks for erasing mistakes.

The “semi” means that “fresh” paint is better than brushing many times in same region, as strokes become transparent after a while. Experiment from the start, so all the color information is available to the brush.

You can import the background for your painting by clicking the button with the mountains icon. After you begin to brush this button will (strangely) disappear. (As changing the background would erase all)

If you like, you can also reuse your painting as a “background” and continue brushing in another session or import your original image and brush above it.
