Some Suggestions to make piq BETTER!

I'll make a list:

~ A dislike button

~ A select tool, to say, select an area to move it (if layers fail, we have this) (suggested by CaveRobot)

~ Report button (if not an admin- these are coming out, right?- to report a copied or sick piq)

~ A REPLY button on comments; a simple 'reply' is easier to look at than comments that have nothing to do with your own comment.

~ Like/dislike buttons for comments

~ To be able to go to advanced piq while in the middle of an artwork on simple piq, WITHOUT loosing your work on simple piq (hope you understand that :P )

Thats all for now!


Always~

A random button, maybe in the first page, that show randomic(-_-) piqs but not blank piqs or penises, only the good ones, based on views,likes or whatever.

I don't know about dislike buttons... maybe on comments, but it would be a bit cruel to have it on piqs. If it's an inappropriate piq, reporting would be good enough (which I think is a great idea).

True, that was posted when I was fairly new to piq.
And thanks!
I had some thoughts on more suggestions, but I can't seem to remember them!

You beat me to it on posting, TyTy21 xD that was a reply to corrot.

What do you mean by adding detail above it?

Well, what about the shading? And "you want to add that color"; what color, a darker shade of the one your using?

Do you mean using the dither tool? I think what you're discussing is a stylistic technique, I don't think that could be made into a brush.

Maybe there should be a button that could change all types of green into red with the same shade?

Hmm... I see what you mean, 3ddy. I've been thinking about that. it seems like a good idea, as when i'm coloring, I suddenly want to change the color from say, blue to purple, or as you said, green to red, but still have the same shading without having to do all the work (which is annoying!).

Maybe we could also have a tool that let you only draw on a specified place. You could select the space you want to draw on, then it would let you color only in that area- Say I want to color in a shape with lots of shading, though I don't wan to color any other part. I'd use the select tool (of which I am talking about) and then draw a section with my mouse (or finger/stylus if your using a tablet) and color in that section.

That would be easier than what we have now, to have to use so many layers.

I have advanced piq suggestions:

168 X 240 grid (Screen size, pixel perfect, nes screen limit without enlarging)

NES color palette

SNES color palette

Larger color selection

400 X 400 size limit (EXTRA LARGE)

color maker (those color wheels from paint)


That's all I can think of... :D

It would have been great if u can select an area and then add effects; turn around, add noise...

By a bigger grid you mean smaller pixels fusion ruby? That'd be nice.

A feature to make a piq private, and you can select who sees it.
Also, a color wheel like in photoshop, and the ability to select colors by hex codes.

Also, the ability to set your timezone. I've been noticing some screw ups with the timestamps recently. Basically, users could set their timezone and when things show up, the timestamp will display their time relative to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). It sounds a bit complicated, but it might clean things up. Or the timestamps could just plain be set to UTC, with no relativity at all.

Maybe it's time to separate the contest by age ... or techniques (pixel and realistic)

More achievements:

# of piqs - 100, 200, 300 and more
# of collaborations - 20 and more
# of collaborations branched - (you collaboration as branched 10 times, 20, 30...)
# of subscribers - 10, 15, 20
# of piqs in one single day - 10, 15, 20 (or more)

And report button is a very good idea.

PigottFence432 mentioned earlier:
There should be a text/typing tool to make it easier to write.

Also, while I'm thinking about better features, perhaps a Flatten Image function? Think of it this way. You're drawing, and you have all sorts of layers, but you hit the layer limit. You're not done, and you could really use one or two more layers. So, you push the Flatten Image button and WHAM, everything you've done so far is all in one layer, with the other five freed up. Or, if you don't really want to combine the ALL the layers, you could simply select the layers you want to merge together and push the button. If having the ability to make as many layers as you want is simply out of the question, then the ability to merge them would be quite convenient.

My Idea's:

Animation Studio; choose 2 or more piq's that you made and make an animation!

Blend Tool (Advanced Piq); you have two layers, you want them to blend, all you have too do is press the blend tool and choose how much you want to blend. (Scale 5 to 100)

Shape Tool; you may choose a shape to draw in. (like a circle instead of a square)

Text Tool: Type in some text and BOOM it goes on you're Piqture. (See What I Did There?)
