Description:

This is an idea of integating KSnapshot and KolourPaint together.

KolourPaint is fast, lightweight image editor. It could work with KSnapshot to provide easy screenshot editing.

Also, there are some new functions suggested to improve KolourPaints' functionality to make screenshot editing easier.

Idea:

KSnapshot:

1. An 'Edit' button on ksanpshot ui to pass image to kolourPaint.

KolourPaint:

1. allow user to set opacity of current drawing tool.

2. allow user to select other colors

3. Tools like skew tool provides quick mouse editing instead of inputing values to skew an object.

It is just an idea to make KolourPaint and KSnapshot to work seamlessly together. User should still be able to access both softwares independently.

The idea is good, but should to be extended to any (configurable) image editor (for example I use gimp and not kolourpaint).

Maybe the first time that "Edit" is pressed it could ask you for the editor you want to use.

this edit button is indeed far more usefull than the print button (does anybody have ever used it ??)

it could be better if one can choose which application is launched when the edit button is pressed (gimp, krita... No need to add things like opacity in a simple app like kolourpaint)

some time ago there has been a long discussion about this on a KDE developer mailinglist. some patches have been applied, but i'm not sure (can't check my mail here) what the outcome was. rest assured, thought has gone into ksnapshot for KDE 4...
