As users of Krita 1.4 know, Krita visualizes selections through a mask. If the default mask colour doesn’t fit the image, you can select a different colour for your mask through the colour well in the selection tool panel. That’s easy enough, but just a mask doesn’t allow for a very precise manipulation of the selection. Today, Casper Boemann added an outline mode to the selection. Still just an outline, no marching ants. And frankly, I’m not even sure marching ants are necessary: they are so eighties.
Of course, we’ll have to do some work to make the color combination tasteful
and clear at the same time. For instance, the bluish mask color Casper chose doesn’t
work all that well with black and white photographs.
