Today, we are here with a new news and new features for our Blender!
I started to develop features for images to create layers in Blender, as in PS and Gimp!!
A first implementation was done by KWK (Konrad Kleine)  for Gsoc2010.
In this post , I announced that I was working on the development of the layers. But then I was taken by the development of AMA (pause for the inclusion of Bmesh in the trunk) and all this came secondary.
The current status is:
Layers v0.1 beta1 new features and fixed bug 023\2012:
1. FIX: Fixed many bugs from the patch of KWK.
2. UPD: Improved UI.
3. ADD: With the creation of a new image now you can choose the background color: Transparent,
4. ADD: Ability to duplicate a layer.
5. ADD: Blend Modes: Normal, Multiply, Screen, Overlay, Soft Light, Hard Light, Color Dodge,
Linear Dodge, Color Burn, Linear Burn, Average, Add, Subtract, Difference, Lighten,
Darken, Negation, Exclusion, Linear Light, Vivid Light, Pin Light, Hard Light.
See you soon with many new features!
