drawing smooth lines (tool)
Posted 22 January 2011 - 06:30 AM
Gimp is awesome except has anyone made a tool that smooths out the line you just drew?
I found the smooth path plugin (for drawing with paths) but paths take a little too long to do for the stuff i want to do.
I guess this is a commonly asked question. Are there just problems with making a tool like this for gimp? I sort of cant believe that nobody has tried. It could really make a lot of people love gimp.

What i mean is something that just straightens out the lines i draw automatically.
so if i drew a wobbly line, (like the top line) as soon as i let go of the mouse button the line straightens (like the bottom line).
These pictures are exaggerated, i would not want it to smooth out that much!
Programs that have it also have a way to change the amount it smooths (vital).
Basically i cant draw straightish (not absolutely straight) lines quickly.

Though it still won't make you "kind of a circle" into a true circle.
If you want real geometric shapes, I'd suggest trying inkscape.
[EDIT] To draw straight lines just shift-click from endpoint to endpoint.

Yes indeed, Inkscape has a line/freehand drawing tool which you can even adjust the amount of smoothing you want
before you draw the line.
Have you tried Inkscape ?
