When selected on an image, following functions are available:
When the (also, the ) button is shown, the spape of selection is rectangle(oblong or square).
When the (also, the ) button is shown, the spape of selection is free style.
With thekey, adjacent pixels to start point of which have same color as start point are target of selection shape.
With the& the key, selection shape is increased.
With the& the key, contrast, selection shape is decreased.
With the& the key, adjacent pixles are target of selection shape, with current color is border: be called the Selection shape with Border.
With the& the & the key, selection shape with border is increaced.
With the& the & the key, contrast, selection shape with border is decreased.
Within selection shape, a selected image is moved when the main button is dragged.
With thekey (or the sub buttom pressed), copy image when the main button is released.
Whenmenu select, an image within selection shape is drawn(painted) with current drawing function.(note that behavior of the Tint is same as the Uniformed Tint.)
When the button is shown, the handle is not appear, which means that rotating and resizing are not avaiable.
When the botton is shown, the handle is appear which rotating and resizing are available. At this time, each handle are assigned following functions:
The feature of the Automatic Gradient that between adjacent colors are interpolated by using the tile-pattern(organized dither).
Whenmenu select, then open the Auto-Gradient setting panel.
When the main button is clicked on a whole color listed area, then select a color of targtes.
The slider that specify gradient depth(with), which value can be specified by 1 through 16 (in terms of Dot, 8 dots through 256).
When the "Manual" is indicated, each boundary are drawn by specified slider value.
When the "Auto" is indicated the slider is dislabled, which depth(width) of each boundary are depend on continuous dot length.
When the "Each" is indicated, each depth(witdh) of boundary can be specified with each pair. And, maximum value(boundary depth(width)) is specified by the slider, each value is calculated that are depend on the count of pixels within selected shape. That values(each boundary depth(width)) can set/see on the Detail setting sheet that is opend by clicked thebutton.
When the "Adjacent" is checked, pair of exactly adjoining pixel value is targeted. So that, if colors of selected are discrete then automatic gradient can be doing.
By default, following conditions satisfied colors is selected:
Replace color value within selection shape by other color value.
Whenmenu is selected, the Replace color setting panel open.
The main button is clicked that specifies source color and the sub button is clicked that specifies destination color, which regiser button is clicked that pair of source-destination register a list of target colors.
If want to specify continuous colors, can specify the value of range on edit box below the color list.
Mix an image of current layer with an image of immediately below layer.
The current layer represents a gradient, the immediately below layer represents a pattern.
An image of result is store into the current layer.
Following pictures explain before/after applying the texture.(when click image, show full-size.)
To apply the textture, the Texture setting panel open whenmenu is selected.
The base colors specfies colors that pasting image use colors.(i.e. an image of immediately below layer uses colors.) To specify a range of color, input number on the Vert edit box.
The gradient colors specfies colors that gradient image use colors.(i.e. an image of current layer uses colors.) To specify a range of color, input number on the Hori edit box.
The replaced color specifies colors that uses by the result of mixing image.
Using rectangle selection area, clip image.(Even if selection area is freestyle, clipping always use enclosed it rectangularly.)
