      • Add color selection wheel to color palette.

        This will let you more easily select a wide range of colors instead of having to mess with the palette size.

          • Import PSD files

              • Move Selected Pixels mode must also allow resize of selected content

                The first thing I missed within seconds of using ver 1.1 was that I could not adjust the size of the content inside the selected area as I often do after pasting a cut image from an external source. This is one of my most frequently used features in Paint.NET The Move Selected Pixels Mode should have handles to allow resizing of the selection and its contents before pasting.

                • Support 8-bit Alpha Transparent PNG images

                  8-bit PNGs with alpha transparency are images that can contain semi transparent pixels, unlike regular 8-bit PNGs. The main advantages over 32-bit PNGs is that they take up less space, and degrade more gracefully with IE6.
                  Few editing tools support them, for some reason.

                                • Set white background when moving, cutting, erasing etc

                                  When Rectangle Select is used and Cut is executed the transparent background appears. I would like to have white background in 99% of time.

                                  The same problem Rectangle Select and Move Selected Pixcels - background becomes transparent, I need white background.

                                  The same problem with Eraser. When erasing some part of the picture I would like to have a white background, not transparent.

                                  Default white background is by default in MS-Paint, Gimp etc. I think most of the non-expert-image-editing-users expect white background, so I think white background should be default selection.

                                  I don't know how to implement this - some…

                                  • More than one image open, and viewable, at the same time.

                                    I like working with multiple images and not having to tab between them.

                                    With a Windows system, I use Paint Shop Pro (versions 8 and 12) for most of my graphics. Newer versions of PSP have become unusable for the way I work, and I desperately want, and need, a new program to take its place.

                                    From what I have seen so far, Paint.NET (for Windows) and Pinta (For Linux) are my best hopes.

                                    GIMP is okay, but I am not fond of their limitation of one-color-at-a-time. I feel handicapped with GIMP.

                                        For me, if Pinta could use gimp or photoshop brushes it would become a real powerful tool.

                                          As a digital artist I'd love to see this feature implemented. This single tool would make a major difference to the type of art that can be created with Pinta. Even just a basic one with basic parameters could make it's graphic capabilites more versatile.
