Scaling Down Big Brushes Loses Quality
OS: Windows 10 64-bit
Gimp Version: 2.10.2 (Should be the latest version)
(I'm new about sending in these things, sorry for any mistakes.)
This file is a 2500x1763 px file in which I created a brush tip from. All nice and dandy that GIMP loads brushes as large as that!
This looks great! This is how the brushes are suppose to look! However, when I scale down the same brush to 500px...
The one at the bottom is choppy compared to the one at the top. Meaning, GIMP doesn't scale down brushes correctly. It should be low quality when the brush tip is scaled upwards. It shouldn't be choppy when scaled downwards.
I wanted to compared this and see how Photoshop CS6 handled big brushes scaled down. Here's it is at 100% view, with the some document file size, and same brush sizes (2500px at top and 500px at bottom):
I'm not sure if this is suppose to be intentional (I don't think it is), but it feels off-putting. I hope this makes sense, and if this isn't a bug or anything, feel free to close the ticket. I tried looking to see if there was a bug report. similar like this, but I don't think I found it.
The dpi doesn't matter because this happens, regardless if it's 72 ppi or 300 ppi.
