As I was creating different banners, sometimes I needed a way to quickly invert the working foreground/background color.
But I found myself having to draw using foreground color then invert it using Colors/Invert then use the color picker tool to pick that inverted color.
I don't know if exists a quick way of inverted the foreground color or background color in GIMP, I searched for it but didn't find anything that mentioned how to do it.
So I created this script. To quickly invert the working foreground color or working background color.
Is this not the same as the keyboard shortcut - the 'X' key
Use it all the time especially with quickmask
OK, I can see the difference, but not the point
I thought you were going to tell me a short cut key that inverts that background/foreground color and I would feel really stupid for making a script for something that already exists. I am surprised there isn't a way to do it like control click on to invert it or something.
When using a layer mask or a quick mask, you are always swopping FG/BG to paint in or paint out parts. What is the advantage of having both the same colour and the added work-flow of using the your plugin?
I thought X swaps the colors.
My plugin is when let's say you have foreground as Red and background as Blue and you want foreground to be inverted color of Red not swapped but the inverted color of Red whatever that might be.
