[LazPaint] Always align to pixel grid
« on: June 20, 2019, 09:45:18 pm »
So,
I've been looking in to LazPaint as an alternative to Paint.net on linux(GIMP confuses me), but the one problem I'vs got so far is, that I always have to press ctrl if I want to only draw a 1 pixel line and thet doesn't even work sometimes and it still draws non opaque pixels.
Is there some way I can always only draw "full" pixels with the pencil tool?

Hi,

Indeed, the Ctrl key supposedly does align to pixels. It can draw non opaque pixels if there is a oblique segment (intermediate pixels) or if the alpha of the selected color is not opaque.

I suppose what you would like is to disable completely antialiasing?

Yes, cause I want to use it for pixel art. I want kind of a behaviour like in gimp.

Maybe is not hard to add?

Plus you can do a beta release to people test the new features even if is not finished, indicating that of course, things may change or break... just an idea, I see that for example in Blender, they do that kind of pre releases weekly or monthly. I can help with Windows builds and testing.. in mac I'm not sure how to start.. :)

Yes, indeed. Doing a beta version would help progress.

Ok. I will prepare the binaries for windows, labeling the program -beta is ok?

Like LazPaint x.x-beta and the commit string like 53770b6 to identify it.

Do you have a list of changes?

Is working again on macos 64! All the new stuff you added fixed something that was not working. As well thanks to those fix cocoa 64 target.

I have added build modes for macos 64 bit.
