Deconstructing the Paint Application IX: Brush Size and Opacity Sliders


With the basics of the tools on the Flash Oekaki/Paint application out of the way, let’s look at some of the controls for those tools. Two of the most important ones are the brush size and opacity; the brush size affects the Brush Tool, while the opacity affects the Brush Tool, Oval Tool, Line Tool, and Rectangle Tool.

I’ve set mine up with two ways of controlling the brush size and opacity: an input text box, or a slider.
