Hi, I've been using Photoshop for many years and I was just wondering what you thought of these additions, do you intend to integrate them in the future? It would make Artweaver a great alternative to the other alternatives and give the real Photoshop a run for it's money, well at least in Freeware terms.

Clipbaord
When pasteing from the clipboard have Artweaver determine the size of the image that will be pasted when selecting 'New'.
Ideal for screen grabs, or selections pasted between windows.

Blur Tool
A tool/brush to manually blur what lies beneath with strength/percent settings.

Marquee shrink to selection
The marquee shrink/snaps to the selection beneath when the arrow tool is selected, using cursor keys selection is moved left or right -allowing exact movement

Grow/Shrink Marquee selection by pixel
This is very usefull for creating drop-shadows as you can then copy a layer, marquee it, grow the edge, fill it in then add blur.

Circular/Oval Marquee tool

Fixed Size Marque option to specify Width and Height in Pixels -
Very useful for copying areas to paste into new window for exact sizes.

Marquee Fill/Outline
Allowing the user to add a stroke width to the marquee edge, or fill - this would make the rectangle drawing tool obselete, but be
more usefull.

Marquee Lasso Tool
Allow the the user to use a freehand marquee selection.

Marquee Polygon Lasso Tool
Allowing the user to trace around a contour to use as a selection.

Invert Marquee Selection
Allowing the user to invert the slection from inside to out.

Transform Marquee Selection
To transform a selection by Flip Vertically/Horizontally, Scale, Roate 90, -90, 180 degrees, Freehand Rotate with abilty to use
CTRL key to snap degrees

Grab/Move Canvas with 'Space' key

Zoom out with 'ALT' key
When the Magnifier is selected, Zoom in by default, but Zoom out when ALT key held down.

Canvas Size Percentage
Allow the user to increase the Canvas by specified amount 25% 50% 200% etc.

Besides all this, well done so far! :D

In my opinion, these things are most important. Artweaver is great - it has no alternatives to work under Windows account without Administrator rights.
