This toll will save your life if you are not an artist, but, if you are an artist it might just save you some time. The USP of this over photoshop is the horizontal wrap mode than ensures your landscape is tilable, repeatable, not only that, you can test the parallax feature right here.. Not just that, you can also check out what it looks like as C64 art, Sega master System art, Amiga AGA art, pixels, oils, shapes, 4-channel colouring per brush stamp and so much more to come with your support and feedback.

A great beginning for this software. Nice for just plopping some things down to create a quick "Sketch" for concept things. Not enough ability to modify, yet. I think that will likely be coming. I still prefer my PD Howler, but it is fun to play with. Being beta, there isn't a lot of help files, again, yet. But, I was able to poke around the keyboard and figure out how to make the brushes bigger and smaller. Never did figure out how to erase things, without just deleting the things on that layer. Look forward to seeing the updates and changes in the future.
Wow, PD Howler, I had never heard of that until now, much more developed looking ofcourse and I like to think of my own as far simpler than those over-featured / feature-rich competitors. In Background Designer, you don't really erase, everything is a blush-plot of a pre-made image (with alpha) so you simply undo /redo, the good thing about that is you can undo your way back to a mistake, fix it, then redo your way back to where you left off, a shortcut for that is Shift+Enter (buttons coming soon). I wont be going down the Painting-tool route as I want to keep this plot-based so that it could potentially be used in games by way of the save files and brushes. Future versions will expand on that idea much more. Think of this as designed for that first prototype and getting rid of default skies / backdrops in your game. I hope to add some kind of layer masking which could be good though! Thanks for the review, I'd love to see what you manage to make!
