My Krita GSoC 2010

The title of my project is “New Colour Choosers for Krita and Karbon”.

This sounds like an easy task – maybe it is, but it’s much work nevertheless. I won’t deliver only ordinary colour choosers, they will support colour spaces, various types (see here), harmonic colours, shades of current colours, shades of the current image and zoom for an accurate selection. If you are interested, here you can download the application for GSoC (including some mockups).

According to the time line the first task is  to “Outline algorithms for drawing selector, computing shades and common colours”. To do this i will look at the existing selector of Krita and at MyPaint. Probably computing common colours will be the most interesting and most challenging part of this.
