Improved image filtering – SpeedyPainter v3.4.5

SpeedyPainter v3.4.5 uses a better algorithm for alpha blending. This new solution allows to avoid image artifacts with image filtering, allowing to reduce the image graininess when zooming in and out from the image original size.

SpeedyPainter 3.0 – brush library

This is an anticipation of the new feature that will be soon available in SpeedyPainter 3.0.

In this version the user can choose among different brushes available inside a brush library.

In this video we can see some different brushes in action:

The library contains some simple default brushes, like the ones used in the video.

The user can add his own custom brushes, by simply moving them into the brush folder (data/brushes) and restarting the application.

When saving a drawing process, if the user used a custom brush which is not present in the default library, the brush will be automatically saved inside the drawing process file. This way the drawing process can be replicated also on installations of SpeedyPainter which don’t contain that particular brush.

Hope you will appreciate this new feature 🙂

Speedy Painter v3.0 will be available soon for download at:

The following video shows the default brushes available in the library:

New feature: Crop tool

This is a quick demonstration of the crop tool in action.

The crop tool is available since SpeedyPainter v2.7.0.

As you can see from the video, the tool is consistent with other canvas operations like canvas rotation, zoom or panning.
You can use the tool also to expand the current canvas size: useful when you realize that your whole drawing will go outside the current canvas area (a common mistake 😀 ).

Feel free to express your usage experience and suggestions.

Thank you! 🙂
