I know Photoshop isn't meant for use in games, but I'm still trying to use it for such. I have an image with an alpha channel (its a GUI button) and I want to shorten it a bit by selecting some of the righthand side of it and simply moving it to the left a bit. Apparently photoshop thinks it would be best if it leaves the alpha channel alone. I mean, why would I want that to move as well ?!?? If I select only the alpha channel in the layer I then get that bollocks message about the target channels being hidden. God, I really do hate this program with a passion. It's utter shite - nothing works the way you'd expect. So I have two questions: 1) Does anyone know how to pull off the miraculous feat of getting a thousand quid bit of art sofrtware to know what a fucking alpha channel is and let me move it about ? 2) I'm looking for recommendations for an art program suitable for use in game development. ProMotion can't deal with true colour and gimp is trying its best to be yet another photoshop. I want something that just bloody works - meaning RGBA naturally has some A. Thanks. Sorry for the rant but since trying to use this program in earnest instead of ProMo I spend more time trying to move an icon about than I do to code a whole game.
