QuickTip 1 : Krita user interface, working values

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 2, 2013, 3:39 AM


For black and white artworks or when you need to spend long time working on the values in your process , you 'll probably appreciate this Krita tips ...

Specific Color Selector


- Add the docker 'Specific Color Selector'  ( Top menu : Settings > Docker > Specific Color Selector )
- Check the box 'Show Colorspace Selector'
- Turn the model to 'Grayscale'
- Uncheck the 'Show Colorspace Selector'
- Resize the box to have a long width
... Now you have a wider range of selection for selecting precisely a value

Light pollution around


- To dim down all the polluting back-light of your display around artwork and help you to focus on your artwork, a good idea to change Krita for a darker theme.
Top menu : Setting > Theme >  ...then choose.
I tend to work more in the 'Krita-blender' theme, or as on the screenshot above  'Krita-darker'
Note : Gnome / Xfce / Unity users may have a bad rendering. Install kde-style-oxygen package , and setup it with qt4-qtconfig to solve

- Also, you can dim the value of the color 'around the canvas' in Krita
Top menu : Settings > Configure Krita -> ( display icon on the left column ) -> Canvas border :  'Color'
Depending the mood, I use or a dark value here ( 50 ) or a mid one ( 128 ) , but rarely above

Keyboard shortcut


You can press at any moment while painting this two mnemonic shortcuts
K for 10% darKer value
L for 10% Lighter value
Also, as a reminder : I for less opacIty,  and O for more Opaque are just above , and M for Mirroring view ...

Save your workspace


Krita can save 'workspace'  witch mean you can save mukltiple dockers positions depending your activities, or workflow
Toolbar : Last icon -> Insert a name -> Save
ex : here I have my trusty 'Black-White_1200x1600' workspace ready to launch for my screen.

Hi,
I encountered 3 problem while starting with Krita.
1. Applying or modifying any filter from the dropdown menu uses too much of cpu that it gets slow. CPU: Core2Duo.
2. Files>new> imports the last screenshot that the 'shutter' app took. It's so weird, I cant even guess the connection between Shutter and Krita.
3.Edit>resources> gives a straight floating line instead of an option or drop down menu.

Any Idea how to fix these?

Hey, It's an old feature from Krita 2007 6 years ago. It probably get abandonned.

So anything alternative of this? I mean how the colour mixing is being done now? Just from selecting from the wheel?

Yes, only the wheel or using a corner of the canvas I guess as a painting surface.
The brush engine ' Color Smudge' with the 'dulling' mode can do similar color blending.
