    • Save-as behaviour extremely broken

      Create a PNG and save it. Doodle a little bit, then 'Save-as' instead of Save - this not only creates a copy, but overwrites your original!

        pixen crashed on me this morning firstly. secondly it needs to ask if you want to save it as a pixen image (with layers) or as a png (merging all layers) every time you quit AND every time you save or at least give the options in the preference menu

        • An interlaced color palette / The crisscross of color palette !

          Well basically adding the possibility to join colors and gradients between them.
          Make like a crisscross of colors, joined together.
          Making your project's color more coherent and efficient.

          • 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…

                • 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.

                      I definitely need some scaling capabilities. Being able to select an area and scale that selection would be amazing!

                      • Graining tool

                        I (and many others who use Pixen to edit Minecraft texture files) would like an image graining tool, and maybe even a selection grain (like the rectangle selection square).

                          • 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.

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