 Draw Line Tool

The Drawing Tools (touch up tools) are designed to draw lines, curves, polygons, circles, squares and text on the current image. The Eyedropper Tool can pull any color from the current image.


The Draw Line Tool can be used to draw straight lines on the current image, with thickness, color and Arrow Head options available.
The Invert (XOR) check box, when checked, allows lines to be drawn with the opposite color of the pixel or pixels on the current image.
The Arrow check box, when checked, will put a pointer on the end of the line. The numeric spinner beside the Arrow check box allows the size of the Arrow Head to be adjusted.
The color can be adjusted by double clicking on the color box (Outline), and then a dialog box will come up allowing red, green and blue or HSV values to be set.

Moving the R, G and B sliders will change the color in the Color Selection widow. Click on Set when the color is correct. The Method drop down box allows one to switch between RGB and HSV.
The line Thickness can be changed by adjusting the numeric thickness spinner up or down.

To use the Draw Line Tool, click on the Draw Line  icon, and then while holding down the left mouse button on an image, pull a line in any direction. Options can be changed in the Image Touch Up menu at any time. Once the line is positioned properly on the image, click on the Stamp button.

While drawing lines on the current image, the Remove or Remove All buttons may be used to remove either the last line all drawn lines. Once the Stamp button has been clicked, the lines become a permanent part of the current image.

It is possible to remove one line at a time after the Stamp button has been pressed by using the Undo button depending on how many undo levels have been set in the user configuration page (see Undo).
