Krita 4.3 - Gimp 2.10.20 released

19 Jun 2020 11:19 - 23 Jun 2020 17:33 #29683 by Banj

Three months after the release of Krita 4.2.9, we’ve got a major new feature release for you: Krita 4.3.0! We’ve spent the past year not just fixing bugs, even though we fixed over a thousand issues, but have also been busy adding cool new stuff to play with.

There’s a whole new set of brush presets that evoke watercolor painting. There’s a color mode in the gradient map filter and a brand new palettize filter and a high pass filter. The scripting API has been extended. It’s now possible to adjust the opacity and lightness on colored brush tips separately. You can now create animated brush tips that select brush along multiple dimensions. We’ve made it possible to put the canvas area in a window of its own, so on a multi monitor setup, you can have all the controls on one monitor, and your images on the other. The color selector has had a big update. There’s a new snapshot docker that stores states of your image, and you can switch between those. There’s a brand new magnetic selection tool. Gradients can now be painting as spirals.

I haven't used/updated Krita for ages. I gave up on it when it started crashing during Save/Export, which is not an ideal feature. :dry:
Seems like a good time to try it again to see what they've fixed/improved. :)

I have it installed and I keep it updated, but I haven't really used it for anything much so far.

Funny how their last year was only 3 months long? :dumb:

I use Krita for Aywas stuff sometimes. When I need to colour a pet base someone else made and they used clipping masks and such, Krita is easier to work with than ArtRage.

Any an all misspellings are henceforth blamed on the cat.

Oof! This version's even worse than the one I just uninstalled.
Doesn't completely crash at least, but first of all the canvas didn't update at all until I accessed the menu. Then I went into settings and turned off the OpenGL/DirectX acceleration and now it's better but still very erratic. Sometimes the brush stroke shows and sometimes it doesn't. :dry:

I do seem to have trouble with these Linux ported things, even Gimp doesn't recognise the pressure sensitivity of my tablet any more.

Guess I'll stick with FireAlpaca for my colour correction/editing.

They say that the definition of insanity is repeatedly doing the same thing and expecting different results. So in the spirit of madness I thought I'd run that version of Gimp one more time before uninstalling.
And this time ... it worked.
It recognised my tablet.
And it gave me pressure sensitivity for the first time in about 8 years! :blink:

:dunno:

Guess I won't uninstall it. :P

You have discovered the cure for insanity! :woohoo:
Quick, send it to the Trump administration!

If only I could think of a Gimp-related punchline for that. :hmm:

:lol:
