The Eraser is a tool that alters the transparency of an image (on the selected raster layer). Processed sections are shown as transparent areas, with a checkerboard background. To quickly access this tool and switch between the Eraser and History Brush tools press E.
|Attention!||When saving a file into a format that does not support transparency (JPEG), the transparent areas will be replaced by white. To keep the transparency, use PNG format.|
The tool's parameters will be shown in a floating box over an image (by right-clicking the mouse) and also in the Settings Panel.
To change the value of a parameter, enter a numerical value into the parameter's field and press Enter (Mac: Return) or adjust the slider.
