i have gimp 2.10.22 on Kubuntu.
I want a one pixel png image with r=102 g=127 b=128 a=128
I know about "add alpha channel". I have played with "add layer mask", setting opacity on various tools, tried the range tool and other tools with add layer mask. I know about edit layer mask / show layer mask / apply layer mask
I just can NOT get a pixel with alpha of 128.
Everything I try gives me a weird alpha value. Sometimes too low, sometimes too high, or 0 or 255 but can't get 128 to save my life.
It looks ok, but when I apply the layer, or look at the tool result with the color picker tool, the alpha is not what I tried to get.
Is gimp just this hard to use (so many settings with bad defaults) or am i dumb (a veryyyy real possibility)
thanks for any help you can throw my way.
EDIT - given that the gradient tool DOES have alpha values you can pick in the from and to point, I figured it should work.
I put in my exact r,g,b,a values into both the from and the to point and picked linear gradient. Then had to click on one of the points and THEN hit ENTER to apply it (I'm def blaming the devs on unusability here)
Nope - alpha turned into 64. Then I noticed opacity was at 50% for the gradient tool.
Set it to 100%, set r,g,b,a in both from and to points, reclicked a point, hit ENTER to apply
Nope - alpha turned into 160.
Anybody know how to file a bug. That's gotta be a bug??
At least I can keep adjusting until I figure out the magic opacity to not change my dang alpha.
Is there something I don't get here. Cuz there sure seems like it.
