Description

Not a bug, but a improvement request.

In Darktable 2.2.1, When creating a brush mask, the brush is opaque and does not allow to see the image behind.

This is very annoying.

The brush mask should be transparent, or at least semi transparent.

Better brush trace handing of opacity to get better control.

The brush was always drawn with a full dark trace and the brush itself
was full white. This patch adds some transparency to see trhough it and
so gain better control about the placement.

Closes #11457.

I agree.

#2 Updated by Christian Kanzian about 1 month ago

Ctlr + mousewheel changes the opacity, but I guess that is not exactly what you are looking for.

However, if I lower the opacity of the brush I cannot decrease the mask opacity afterwards. Only to the value which was initially set.

#3 Updated by Pascal Obry about 1 month ago

I agree too. Maybe a 50% opacity when drawing to say full strength of the mask and then change the opacity from 50% to 0% depending on the opacity.
