Hi, On the advice of this forum I'm using a Tecra M7 with Alias SketchBook Pro 2 for digital art. I get on really well with SketchBook, especially the lasso, move, rotate, resize tools and the labelling of layers. They're all extremely intuitive for tablet use and mean I find myself going back to SketchBook even when I've discovered more powerful programs like OpenCanvas. I'm writing here though because I'm having serious problems manipulating images from SketchBook in other programs. I tend want to make changes like more complex transformations and gamma/colour changes using the Gimp, but whenever I do this the TIFF image gets flattened into a single layer image with all my layer information lost. So can anyone recommend software that can do transformations on TIFFs saved from Alias SketchBook Pro 2 without flattening the images, or let me know how I can fix Gimp so it plays nice with my Alias layers? Thanks for any help. And a big thanks again for all the help you gave me with choosing my tablet and software, and fixing the Click and Hold bug! Nat.
