Files App > On My iPad > ArtStudio Pro
Long press on any file there brings up Actions ribbon; at far right is Info
In all other apps, that Info includes File Size (kB, Mb etc).
With files in Art Studio it reads ‘Zero’ for any image.

Don’t know if straightforward to fix, but can be useful to see file size as part of info there.

Really good to hear.

I hope you don’t get bored with people saying how much they like your App, and how much they appreciate your frequent adjustments and improvements - as well as your genuine response to what users think.
Very refreshing I think.

I very much agree with the idea of improving the Gradient Fill tool.

As you say, the ability to use the current colour would be good (though of course that could only be current to transparent, couldn’t it, since there is no foreground/background colour setup).

My idea (mentioned a while ago) would be to simply have an EyeDropper in the Edit Gradient Colours dialogue. That could then pick up the current colour (if wished) - or any other.

Having to note, copy and paste numeric values of a colour - or often two - to make a gradient is a real weakness I think (and unusual in a usually efficient workflow).

I’m sure you have plenty on your plate with preparing 1.4, but a suggestion/request for the future perhaps…

At the moment, the only way (that I’ve found, anyway) to create some sort of impasto effect is adjusting and applying the Emboss filter to a Layer.
Would it be possible to have a Brush setting for the user to create a similar, by stroke, effect?

If so, I think an improvement to the current Emboss Filter options would be…
a. To have Shadow Colour option to include Current Brush Stroke Colour. (At the moment, only black would suit all (varying colour) Layer Content - which can often look alien).
b. To have the Blend Mode apply to the Shadow and Highlight separately. (This way, same colour with Multiply (or at other times, Luminosity) as Shadow Blend Mode I think could be very realistic)?

(Incidentally, it seems to me (could be mistaken) that there is no difference between existing Emboss filter’s Luminosity and Normal Blend Modes)?

I attach an .asp showing a crude experiment to get Impasto effect using a layer’s Emboss Filter.

Many thanks for that guidance.

Still being slow getting familiar with Layers/Masks in ASPro, but will learn to manage it I’m sure.

Yes, will be good to see an editable Quick Mask.

2 questions, please...

a) How can I paste into a Layer Mask?
b) I can’t find how to paint into a selection’s Quick Mask (with black to fully deselect, through greys, to fully select with white).

Would appreciate help with these.

I’m still puzzled.

Eraser uses a color if active layer has "Lock Transparency" enabled.

But why would anyone be choosing to use the Eraser on a Locked Transparency Layer - knowing it would not erase?

Why, to add colour, would we not be using the Brush?

There may be a technical reason beyond my knowledge, but surely...

“More” could shift to the right, Colour and Brush Preview to the left..?

( Personally, I’ve long thought the Bottom Toolbar is much under-used, for many if not most of the tools - even avoiding the need sometimes to go to “More” ).

Sorry, if I’m being dense (very likely!) but...

In what way does Colour relate to the Eraser?

I can think of no way an Eraser would use Colour. Surely an eraser simply removes - it doesn’t add or replace... so what is the point/purpose of selecting a Colour, please?


How about if we have sliders for both Opacity and Flow in the Bottom Bar?

Ah, yes - it does work (I thought I’d remembered having it working before!)...

But (just to mention) I find it only works (continuous press = continuous undo/redo) if in Preferences ‘Show Redo’ is set to ON. Otherwise it’s still necessary to press separately for each undo/redo.

Transform > Scale does not have Percentage adjustment. (Difficult to adjust % just by eyeballing the Indicator popup). More useful - and more logical, I'd think - for Scale transform (rather than changing Size by Pixel Dimensions).
All other Transform options have numeric values in Bottom Bar but not Scale.
In Scale > Other, the Bottom Bar options are repeated. There looks to be room enough for Percentage to be available in Bottom bar?

Also... In Paint > Symmetry : it's an Either-Or, Horiz or Vert, but both are always highlighted (so not obvious which is active if Visible is set to Off),  but also it suggests it would be a both ways (diagonal) effect (which would be useful).
And, as it is, 'Enabled' seems redundant: just selecting either H or V enables symmetry.

And... Would it be possible to have a continuous press to multiple undo/redo. (Or maybe that's possible now , and I've just not discovered how).

Finally... Can I add my voice to the idea of a User-editable Quick Menu. So very useful.

(PS... Thanks for adding continuous press for Transform >Nudge. And for other changes and additions).

I might have missed it, but is there a way to use Colour Picker when setting a colour tab in Gradient Fill editor?

Would be really useful.

I'm nudging this because it's a while now and might have been missed, and a reply to my questions would be really useful.

kevinb... I think it's just a question here of the terms used. Blend Modes (I'm sure you know) are how one layer interacts with the one beneath; the "modes" you refer to, I think, are actually the Blending Options controls in Photoshop's Layer Style Panel, affecting how much they interact.
As I say, seems like just a small confusion of terms here.
