Canvas Resize: Automatic background colour

Post by ihatzi »

This should be an easy one to implement, and would add an important bit of functionality currently missing.

The "Canvas Size" action should have the "Color of pixel at" feature for background color. Often you want to batch this and you need the background color to be dynamic.

Hope to see this soon :)

+1 A good suggestion.

"Colour of Pixel at position" is a good start - later on there could be additional methods to determine the background, e.g. colour that is most often used for example.
