    • Allow user to change a palette colour's colour space

      Presently Pixen only works in the 'Generic RGB' colour space which is USELESS as I NEED colours to be in the 'sRGB' colour space. I've been asking for this fix, but still nothing has been done!!!!! This is URGENT!!!!!

              • Persistent Tool Settings

                I saw this ticket was completed (see my comment there):

                http://pixen.uservoice.com/forums/171709-general/suggestions/4448516-default-starting-tools

                But to go along with that, it would be awesome if the tool settings (under the toolbar in v3.8) were also saved at close and appeared as they were at launch. At least optionally as set in the Preferences pane. It does become tedious and annoying to constantly reset tools to my preferred states.

                  • create sprite sheet / export sprites from single image

                    This idea may be similar to another already posted idea but this is what i like to see.

                    When creating a single image i like to be able to register a selection, give it a name and continue editing. After creating my sprites, registered them all and gave them a name i want to export all sprites from this single image to (PNG) files with the given names. for example: i created a helicopter, tree and a ball and named theses. After exporting the sprites i want these files on my disk:

                    helicopter.png
                    tree.png
                    ball.png

                    Now i can process them…

                    • bugs in the palette widgets

                      While editing a sprite, the frequency palette may miscount colors used, displaying incorrect results.

                      When changing a palette index's color, it may appear incorrect in the frequency palette, and cause miscounts.

                      The only way to refresh the frequency palette is switching between it and the recent colors widget.

                      When switching between the recent colors widget and the frequency palette, the frequency palette may display incorrect colors (typically after changing a palette index's color)

                      After double clicking on a palette index within the frequency palette, it is not easy to exit the palette editing mode. (E.g cannot "deselect" the palette index…

                        • Option to set default filetype when saving.

                          At the moment, both "Save As" and "Export" will default to the last-used filetype. This is awful because you might accidentally save your Pixen file as a flat image file and lose all your layers.
                          If there were an option for default filetype, you could set it as a Pixen file or as your preferred filetype as you chose, and no longer be subject to the whims of your checkered past.

                          • Mirror Map/Pattern Tool

                            When making a large repetitive image I'm finding myself hitting copy/paste/merge-below multiple times. It would be easier if i could select part of the screen and hold down(a key or brush) to duplicate the graphic following the cursor. Almost like creating an instant pattern.

                                      • sprite sheet centric workflow

                                        the result of pixen work can be one of:
                                        -single image
                                        -single animation
                                        -character animation spritesheet

                                        i think the least one needs a bit of rethinking.
                                        it would be nice to pack few animations into a spritesheet of fixed dimensions (usually power of 2... 128x128 256x256...) and have the frames grouped by animation.
                                        I like how this has been done in sprite something for iOS
                                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_ZBI7KSI0M&feature=relmfu
                                        basically you work on a big png and see a portion of it (the frame) then you makes animation by chosing sprites from the big sprite sheet.

                                        • Grouping/Nesting Layers

                                          I tend to build up loads of layers. The ability to group them would be really handy.
