Software News   Software News : HollyPaint updated to 1.1
   posted by Mazze on 4-Aug-2013 12:25:02 (2693 reads)
HollyPaint is a simple paint application. It's written in the Hollywood programming language. Because of the MUIRoyale plug-in it has a MUI interface.

Additional to some fundamental drawing functions it has an interface to all Hollywood filters like "Sepia-tone", Blur", "Gray" etc... (Please click read more.)

It can be downloaded from:
It contains binaries for AROS, AmigaOS3+4, and MorphOS, although its author could only test the AROS version.

It's an Open Source project with BSD license.
Sourceforge project page:
The documentation in the Wiki of that site will be updated soon.

Screenshots: (click images for full size)

* Rebuilt with Hollywood 5.3
* Fixed issues with running stable under AROS, Morphos and AmigaOS4
* Colorwheel with alpha sliders in own window
* Individual setting of color for gradient, shadow and edge
* Made toolbar window resizable
* Loading and saving of transparent brushes
* Implemented remaining filters
* Implemented Arc tool
* Added command line options -v (verbose) and -vv (very verbose) for debug output
* New brush functions:
- Trim brush (cuts off transparent areas)
- Invert brush
- Invert mask
- Invert alpha
- Replace Background by Pen color
- Replace Pen by Background color
- Copy Canvas: creates a brush from whole canvas
- Put Back: place brush at given coordinates
- Implemented reverting of brush
* Print hotspot offset in brush information window.
* User borderless display. This makes it possible to load pictures with the same resolution as the screen.
* Print the size of the picture if it is too large to be opened.
* Added a checkmark to the status bar which shows if a brush is active.
* Use checkmark instead of text objects to show mask and alpha state.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Coming along very nicely. Thanks.

The one omission that I personally find to be missing however is a lack of user defined palettes (256 and/or less colors). Even in this day and age it's a very useful feature to have.

Great progress on this multi Amiga platform paint program! this really shows the value of Hollywood IMHO. I'll be having great fun loading & using HollyPaint on all my systems & hopefully even my Amiga 1000
