Note before reading: ignore the “x” at the end of paint.NETx. It is there just to prevent the text from becoming a hyperlink.
Coming from paint.NETx, I got really used to being able to create a circle (as well as lines and rectangles), and then modify/place it exactly how/where I want it.
I understand that some people may find this feature annoying as it would slow down the insertion process (in paint.NETx you have to press ESC or click off the shape to exit the “draw” step).
I can’t find any videos of this process, but for those curious to find out what I’m talking about, paint.NETx is free, so you can try it out yourself and see how it feels. The website for it is https://www.getpaint.net/. I don’t know how to remove the hyperlink from paint.NET or else I would, as it is just a website about actual, physical paint.
I don’t mean for this to be a shout out to paint.NETx or anything. I love Aseprite and just want to see it get better and better!
