Two Suggestions I want Implemented in Future Release

I just made an account here, to put forth these two suggestions:

I use Gimp to "paint" - like computer art.

And I would like to see this implemented or at least have as a selectable option:

MOUSE WHEEL:

1.) The roll in and out feature - I'd rather just have as a "brush thickness" feature that I could change on the fly while stroking on the canvas. In other words, the mouse wheel roll in and out which changes the zoom, I'd rather it change the brush thickness. So I could, in the same stroke, apply a line and roll the mouse wheel forward for it to be thicker or back to make the line thinner. That would be much more useful than the zoom feature (which I could use + or - for very easily already).

2.) Some mice have either a mouse wheel that can "tilt" (click side-to-side). For that feature, I'd like it to change the brush angle. If some people who do not have a tilt-wheel mouse, maybe you can use extra buttons like the browser forward or browser back buttons that appear on some mice as an alternative brush angle selector for those without a tilt-wheel mouse.

Anyhow, I don't code. But for those who do, can you give this a shot at implementation in a future release of Gimp.

Thanks.

Two Suggestions I want Implemented in Future Release

I'd suggest getting an inexpensive Wacom pen tablet. Changing mouse configurations would be contrary to most users who would be using traditional mouse. The Wacom comes with a mouse usable on the tablet. I'm using one now, and the pen is next to it in the event I need it for drawing. I use both interchangeably and constantly.

THAT we can do right now. Brush hardness and size can be changed on the fly with mouse wheel + keyboard commands. The user does have to configure them though. From an earlier message:

A GIMP VBR variable brush scales with "perfect" resolution and has adjustable hardness because it is a vector, not a bitmap. The VBR brushes available in the basic set included with the GIMP did not suit me, so I made a few of my own: A circle, four ellipses with different orientations, a square and a diamond. Making them with the GIMP brush editor is trivially easy, but here they are for e-z download and installation:

Just extract the brushes into your local ./.gimp2.8/brushes/ directory (or wherever yours is located), start the GIMP and open the brushes dialog: If you have not named any other brushes with strings of leading zeroes, the seven new variable brushes should be at the top of the list. (If you want them elsewhere, rename them; the GIMP sorts brushes alphabetically by file name.)

A set of general purpose GIMP variable brushes is only useful if you can "vary" them on demand. For that, configure this:

Go to Edit > Preferences > Input Controllers. Double click Main Mouse Wheel in the right pane in the dialog window to open its configuration dialog. You can chose other keyboard combinations if desired, these work well for me:

Find the Scroll Up (Alt) item in the list. Double click on it to change the default setting if any, and use the search box to find "Increase Brush Size." Double click this item in the list to set it. The top dialog box will close, leaving the General - Mouse Wheel one open.

As above, find and set the following options:

Scroll Down (Alt) - Increase Brush Size Scroll Down (Alt) - Decrease Brush Size Scroll Up (Ctrl-Alt) - Decrease Hardness Scroll Down (Ctrl-Alt) - Increase Hardness

That's it: Close out of the configuration menu and check out the variable brushes by painting in black on a white canvas: I find the keyboard command options I list easy to remember and and use. Your mileage may vary and if so, you can choose different keyboard and mouse wheel combinations.

I find the set of brushes provided above ideal for generic use (round), getting into tight corners (the ovals), and following rectilinear contours (the square & diamond). You may want different brushes; check out the GIMP brush editor and soon you will be making variable brushes suited to your unique needs.

2.) Some mice have either a mouse wheel that can "tilt" (click side-to-side). For that feature, I'd like it to change the brush angle. If some people who do not have a tilt-wheel mouse, maybe you can use extra buttons like the browser forward or browser back buttons that appear on some mice as an alternative brush angle selector for those without a tilt-wheel mouse.

That one's beyond scope for me; I rarely even play with brush dynamics. But the VBR brush set mentioned above may be of some use.

I can surely tell you about that future is depends on the today's investment which you can make in such things like gold, bitcoin, crypto currency though which makes it good site for it https://cryptolinks.com/cryptocurrency-exchange which helps you to find many applications like wallet, trading, bitcoin news and trading option
