Thanks for the C&C, I'll look into some of these things. :)
BTW: Escape for instant quit isn't quite as bad as it sounds as apart from the Undo / Redo stack the workspaces are all saved..

A lot of these issues come from the fact that the Engine I'm using for D-Pixel is really designed for games and not utilities (hence the fullscreen / windowed issues).  :(

v 0.61 - 25th March 2011

+ Added in full 64 level palette undo/redo feature. This is separate from the image undo so you can undo/redo either the palette or the image without influencing the other
+ Added in clear image icon in Image options (undo/redo able as other drawing operations)
+ Redesigned resize image options: Clear image is implented as before, but also the user can now position the old image at one of 9 orientations (left, centre or right alligned for both X & Y positions) within the new image. Scale image will scale the odd image to fit the new image size
+ Added in crop image tool in Image options
+ Added new options in the System menu: Fade on/off (to switch on/off the panel fading) and FPS counter (which can be used to see how fast the program is running on your computer when doing different tasks in D-Pixel)
+ Optimised text primitive tool for a large increase in drawing speed
+ Added user selectable option for using different Graphic Drivers: DirectX 7, DirectX 9, OpenGL (SOME PROBLEMS NOTED when switching to OpenGL in the program, exiting and restarting should fix..)
+ Added desktop / fullscreen window options

Yes it does need more help stuff. I intend to post screenshots and some explanations of the various panels at some point. As they keep developing and changing it's difficult to do every time there is a new release though! ;)

I don't want to be too negative, but my experience of doing projects where they are customisable is that no-one bothers using that functionality. ;)

Do you mean like a mockup?

Letting people do their actual own GUI placements would be a lot of work, and would anyone really be bothered to do it..?

The problem with that is everyone would want something different.

What do you suggest?

v 0.60 Ė 13th March 2011
Polish, bug fixes and usability update

+ Refined visual style for gui panels
+ Added nice fade in/out of new and old panels to add a bit more polish
+ Fixed error where key presses werenít being cleared before the start of using the text tool (resulting in old key presses being drawn)
+ Fixed error where first small font didnít work!
+ Fixed bug where colours in a 32 bit PNG file didnít get converted properly, resulting in a black palette
+ Fixed bug where changing palette colours and then switching to another image meant the palette changes were lost
+ Added image select strip to the left of the palette for quick selection of workspace images. Layers selection and manipulation will go in a new vertical panel to the right of the canvas
+ Fixed bug where brush manipulation tools (flip, rotate, double, halve, etc..) didnít work if the brush had not been grabbed that session and was saved from a previous session
+ Made all brush manipulation tools go into drawing mood once activated instead of staying in cut/copy modes
+ Added x5 zoom between x4 and x6 when using mouse wheel for a bit more precision when using low zooms
+ Added independent positioning and zooming values for each image (saved to workspace files as well) which makes it much easier to work with multiple images

Opps! Seems like the 'tiny' font doesn't work in the latest version. That will be fixed for the next release..  ;)

I'm not really thinking about making it open source at the moment.. but please let me know what you think I can improve with the interface.

Small update, as not had much time recently..
+ Undo / Redo now works correctly when drawing on multiple images
+ Added text tool with 4 small fonts. Colours and positioning of text can be altered whilst typing

See if anyone uses this! :P
