  1. Upload bulk or massive files

    the idea is tu uplod bulk or massive files, like 50 or 100. Then proceeded to work each image and manage a file list knowing the one es done and the pending job.

    Yeah, the way extending a cut in smooth mode has an impact on the preceding segment is an unfortunate but unavoidable side-effect of not kinking at the smooth nodes.

    Creating a vector shape tool is an exercise in tradeoffs. While the scalpel does use a non-standard editing style, our hope and aspiration is that it makes it possible for normal users to create a high fidelity cut without too much effort.

    The “divide an conquer” strategy mentioned in the tutorial can be brutally effective.

    Most vector editors give raw access to cubic beziers, which are basically impossible to create or edit unless you’ve had extensive training and experience using them.

    You can toggle the corner/curve state on a node by double clicking it, and when you extend a curve it uses the state of the node your extending from.

    This means you can do the first click-and-drag, then double click to switch to corner mode, and then continue extending the cut, corner-style.

    While not quite what you’re looking for it’s a very quick workaround and saves a hard-to-find configuration option.

  4. add a way to get the resolution needed to complete jobs

  5. Allow darker default background for preview only

    Sometimes it's hard to see white or greyish areas that need to be removed but remain along an images borders. We typically switch background colors to a darker background in order to make sure we've got everything, but then sometimes forget to switch back to the transparent background. A non-white background in preview would be really helpful. It would be nice if this could also be set as the default option at the account level or when making an API call.

    Sorry, best workaround at present is to use the keyboard shortcut key B / Shift-B to cycle the background color. Doesn’t make it easier to remember, but at least it makes it quicker.

  6. Please be more clear about having to pay before downloading

    Being upfront about costing money BEFORE they spend a lot of time cutting out space around their image would be really nice. I know you need to eat and all that, but this is just straight up deceptive. Use ads or require an email account like so many other great web apps.

    I understand that it’s easy to miss that the service costs money before uploading an image, despite e.g. the “Pricing” link at the top.

    That said, it really shouldn’t take “a lot of time” to cut your image – the whole point of the app is that it takes 30 seconds to 2 minutes to get the job done.

    Most of the complaints we receive on this topic reference having spent 30+ minutes on an image. That means that either the algorithm completely broke down on that particular image (which certainly happens for a small percentage of images we receive), or the tool is being used incorrectly.

    The most common way to abuse the tool is to use the red/green marks as highlighters. This confuses the algorithm to no end, and you basically have to painstakingly paint in the entire foreground, which sucks.

    I understand that people want the tool…
