Completely rebuilt, Transforming a layer is now a seamless part of the painting workflow. The new transform icon located in the top left, means moving or transforming your layer is always one tap away. With drastically improved performance, you can transform a layer and get back to painting, with no delay!
Something we’re really excited to show is Distort and Shear. With these new tools perspective distortions are as easy as tapping and holding on a point, and then dragging. Also we’ve added a Non-Uniform scale, making it very easy to correct proportions.
The magnet icon on the toolbar adds in some very handy functionality. When on, Magnetic mode allows you to snap transforms to various divisions. For example, when moving or rotating a layer, it will snap to 45 and 30 degree divisions around the origin. Scaling will snap to 25% divisions of scale. Distort and Shear will lock to an axis. Also when in Magnetic mode, multitouch gestures are engaged only one at a time, making it easy to scale but not move a layer.
Check out some of the new multitouch gestures in Transform mode…
We also have a couple of sneaky little gestures… If you need to move the canvas while not wanting to commit a transformation, just hold the the Transform button and zoom and pan. Or you can also hold the Transform button if you just need to make a quick adjustment while painting!
