|New product: IOSPIRIT Graphics Megabundle Pro : Comment 13 of 22||ANN.lu|

|In reply to Comment 12 (Don Cox):|
I've been using FXPaint regularly for a year. The compositing tools are very simple to use and incredibly powerful. I tend to use "Rub Through" the most because I like the ability to un-paint back on the portions of the original I want to keep.
The regular "Compose" option is even more powerful allowing for masks, drop shadows, size change and so on.
The blurring options are top-notch as well. I use "Smooth" set on 3 to take some of the grain out of negative scans (with a Canon FS2710) at 2710dpi. The "Reduce JPEG Artifacts" seems to work well, too.
To grab a brush, first select a portion of the picture you need using the far right crop tool. Then open the brush manager and select the Image to Brush button (use bubble help). The brush will be added to the brush manager. I almost never use brushes.
Mostly I use fxPaint to do compositions, color correction (it works quickly with Amithlon and on the whole image instead of a tiny preview like ImageFX), batch conversions and HTML export (for nifty slideshows).
I use DrawStudio to add text and drop shadows to images.
