    Nice work!

    My wife and I have been using your new tool for over a week now.
    It has more than doubled our productivity on a number of our routine tasks.

    Thanks for your post.

    Phil

    PS - I see that there is a new book coming out on the GIMP soon.

    What I want to know is why the hell some kind of feature like this isn't already in by default.

    I also wonder. I look into talking to the devs to see what they say.

    This is great. Thanks for posting this. I am a Suse person, but a link to this was posted on Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU

    My girlfriend is a photographer. When I tried to switch her computer slowly to open source she complained about resizing brushes in the GIMP.
    problem solved. Nice work metalmusicaddict, and your government is violent!

    I want to add a tiny but helpful hint to this great tip. Make sure to also configure:

    • Wheel-Up (Shift): context-brush-hardness-increase
    • Wheel-Down (Shift): context-brush-hardness-decrease


    Thus my dynamic brush manipulation shortcuts look like:

    • Wheel-Up (Shift): context-brush-hardness-increase
    • Wheel-Down (Shift): context-brush-hardness-decrease
    • Wheel-Up (Ctrl): context-brush-radius-increase
    • Wheel-Down (Ctrl): context-brush-radius-decrease


    This makes several painting actions very fast and efficient imo. While I'm by far no professional gimp-user (or photoshop for that matter), actually I use gimp only now and then, I greatly welcome this time-saving feature a lot.

    Best regards...

    When I press Ctrl the color picker shows itself, so that I can't see how big the brush is while resizing. Is there a way to turn this off?

    And is there a way to make the "dynamic" brush the standard brush?

    It should stay your brush as long as you dont pick another.
