We plan on improving the selection tool (and add more selection tools) in future updates! As for the packages, they are provided by our contributors, because we're not yet very familiar with how they work. We could do something about it in the future though! :)
Hello, thank you for the kind words! You can already use the rectangle selection tool to select a part of the image, and you can hold Shift to move the selected pixels along with the rectangle!
Hello. Importing images as layers is not possible in v0.7, but will be in the next version. Keep in mind that imported layers will be cropped to the project's size, so if you were to import a layer of a bigger size than the current one, it would get cropped.
Right now what you could do is make selections of the entire canvas, copy the imported frames, and paste them as new layers. Copy & paste works only with the rectangle select tool currently. Then, you can remove the extra unneeded frames.
Thank you very much for the kind words and your support! We'll definitely consider more ways to publish Pixelorama in the future! Right now, thanks to our contributors, Pixelorama is also available as a Flatpak and as Snap package!
Unfortunately, we do not own a Mac, which prevents us from generating `.dmg` builds. There's not much we can currently do. You can find more info in this GitHub Issue: https://github.com/Orama-Interactive/Pixelorama/issues/264
The behavior of the transparent checkerboard was changed in v0.7 to be similar to other drawing apps. This way, jitter and dizzyness is reduced, which was especially noticeable in large images. Related GitHub issue: https://github.com/Orama-Interactive/Pixelorama/issues/208
You can enable the grid to help you with pixel-precision instead.
Hello. Can you elaborate further on what you mean by "current pixel size"? Are you talking about the checker background? That has been changed in v0.7 to be unaffected by zooming, so it no longer has the size of one pixel. You can enable a grid in the View menu, "Show Grid" to help you with this!
Thank you very much, we're glad you like it! Pixelorama is available on Linux too, you can download the executable file from itch.io, or, if you prefer, you can also find it as a Flatpak and as a Snap package.
Palettes are being exported as JSON files, which you can open even in a text editor, or import them easily into custom made tools. Hopefully this is good enough. We also plan to work more on the file dialogs and potentially remembering a save location, or letting the user change it.
Hello, thank you for your kind words and your support!
Unfortunately, there is currently no way to change the fact that circles have an odd number of pixels at the apex. We could work on it on a future update though. The circle plotting algorithm we're using can be found here, but perhaps we could modify it.
As for the selection tool, we plan to enhance the rectangular selection tool as well as add more selection tools in v0.9!
A platform to share palettes is a very interesting idea, but it could be challenging as we don't yet know how to do it. We'll definitely consider it more in the future.
We really appreciate your feedback!
Hello. That is not natural, perhaps you should double-check that your antivirus is disabled and the browser isn't deleting the file in any way. I don't know what else might be causing this, sorry.
Thank you very much for your kind words! We have many plans in store for the future updates, but we'll also try and focus more on customization!
A dedicated straight line tool also might happen in the future. You can also use the rectangle selection to select a part of the image and move it around while holding Shift.
Hello! The arrow keys are being used for moving around the canvas. You can also use the middle mouse button, or hold Space and move your mouse. If you're looking for a way to move the contents of the image, there is no hand tool right now, but you can make a rectangular selection and drag it while holding Shift!
