Another hidden gem of @Krita is the reference image tool which allows to pin reference images on canvas. It also comes in handy when you are painting on a big canvas and want to refer to other parts of the canvas, just select the portion you want to refer and then copy merged - ctrl + shift + C and then paste the copied part as reference - ctrl + shift + R, done no more panning here and there #tips #krita #hiddengems #feature

Some features in Krita are like really underrated. For example transform mask, I don't know if any other application has it. What this feature gives you, is the ability to copy the exact transformation like a filter to another layer
Here is a feature request for that same feature on photoshop's feedback portal - https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/smart-objects-suggestions
Don't know if they implemented it or not.
And small things like these that makes krita great
#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.
It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.
It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.
It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.
It's not how e-mail should work.
Consider dropping GMail.

It's pretty amazing that you can develop an app using KDE's libraries in KDE's IDE, have wonderful artists make your project artwork in KDE's painting app and edit a video about it all in KDE's video editor. The number of organizations that could tell the same story can be counted on one hand. The scope of what the #KDE community does is stunning.
Episode 1 of LibreArts podcast is out and features an interview with the @krita team that I did in early June at LGM.
There's one caveat: I have no Apple devices in my household and I don't live in a country supported by either Google Podcasts or Spotify. That means three aggregation options are out of question for now (VPN isn't helpful either). But I'm really new to this and I'm probably missing something.
Please let me know what you think about the podcast!
