Hi all,

I'll be releasing a major update to my freeware image editor (now also simple animation editor) and I could use some help with testing.

More info here: http://www.rw-designer.com/entry/300
Serious, feedback-sending people only, please!

What's in it for you? Nothing! The software is free so I cannot give you a free-er license. Freeware sucks. Wink

Thanks.

I've downloaded the beta and will attempt to give some feedback.  Are there particular features you want heavily reviewed?

Ha vlastimil has a fun sense of humour.  From this page:

It is the year 2011 and the brand new RW Paint is going to get a command line interface. Excited? No? Too bad.

Thanks to everyone!

The codec system was re-done, so that is the most critical part. Import and export of Photoshop, GIMP and Paint.net files is new and I expect compatibility issues and I'd like to know about problematic images. Animation and command line are also new, here I am also interested in any usability issues and especially in cases, when the application confuses you (does something you did not expect).

I just took a quick peak, to try some basic stuff. It looks nice and feature rich etc. ...But crop is too hard to find. It's a basic function that shouldn't need hunted for. I even broke down and went for the help file...

After finding the crop page, which described the action in exquisite detail ... I still haven't a clue where it is at.

There should be a blue scissors button (the third one in the toolbar right above the canvas). If it is not there, it is a bug.

Thanks for the feedback! There clearly is a need for a page that would explain where to look for tools, filters, scripts, etc.

Ah! That button, yes it's there. Any chance of adding crop to the image menu? It seems a logical place for it, and I did notice a few other folks were having trouble finding it.

Thank you

Second run at RW Paint:

So I'm donating some time to the local Humane Society by reworking their website, and part of it required doing some graphics. Thankfully very simple graphics given my complete lack of "art" skills...

All I needed to do was add an X pixel border to a silhouetted image so it could be used as a (link) button of sorts. 2 Hours were wasted in PhotoShop trying to pull this off with absolute zero success. Windows Paint (yes I really was that desperate), would do an unfilled rounded rectangle but the edges were hidiously jagged.

Then I remembered RW Paint and this thread. It was 2am, but I decided to give it a shot. It actually took me longer to find the thread, than it did to get RW Paint to spit out a perfectly bordered, finished, transparent, ready to upload graphic.


Now That is what I call easy to use!  Thmbsup
