Art tool: Change window transparencies with your mousewheel!!
Looked around and found this nifty little app known as Feewhee that allows you to change the transparency of your selected window by using SHIFT-scrollwheel.
How is this important, you might ask? Well, it means I'll be able to do tablet practice off pictures an extremely awesome way: Open my art program, decrease its transparency. Alt+Tab to Deviantart; choose a picture, Alt+Tab back, start tracing; rinse and repeat. For those of you who like to work off references, it's one less layer/import to worry about eh?
But mainly, I like this because it means I'll be able to do gestures off Posemaniacs directly over each 30-second picture. Actually, scratch that. This means I'll be able to do gestures off any kind of media that has a slideshow setting, DeviantArt included.
I dunno if tons of you already have this figured out... in which case... I might just be posting this for the rest of us >_> ... but yeah, it's extremely neat, haha.
I found I could make this thing always run when your computer turns on by two simple steps:
1. Type shell:startup in your search bar after clicking on START
2. Paste a shortcut to feewhee in the folder that pops up and voila!
EDIT: BLARGH I meant to post this in Tutorials. Oh well.
