Can you change brush size opacity by moving the mouse?
Hello everyone I was trying painting with gimp and there is a shortcut in gimp to change the size of the brush/opacity my moving the stylus like you can on photoshop or sketchbook pro.

ALT+ctrl on a mac

This would be an incredible time-saver for us artists and not very complex. If not I will suggest this feauture to the gimo developers Smile

There is this plugin: http://registry.gimp.org/node/27608

I haven't used it myself, so idk if it does what you want.

That is an interesting one, works as it says in linux (PCLOS/Gimp 2.8.6) once you find a free 'hot-key'
Only for the brush size so if you have a keyboard (need one for the hot key anyway) then probably not much advantage over the square bracket keys. To be fair the blurb does say it is aimed at tablet users.

Brush opacity is another matter, I wonder if that script could be modified to include that.
I thought that the opacity + wheel option in brush dynamics might work but so far not working here.

Thanks
Never noticed that one, must be a default - it works here.
