Rebelle 3 is Coming: Save the Date

A- | A+

Excitement is brewing: Rebelle 3 is just a few days away! Packed with ultra-realistic papers, an enhanced blow tool, a new ‘DropEngine’, an effective ‘Masking Fluid’ layer, Canvas and Image size, and…wait…that’s not all! Read below about other new features and improvements of Rebelle 3 and save the date: Monday, April 30th.


New Filters

Our development team has implemented standard color adjustments settings to Rebelle 3 under a new Filter menu, more specifically:

- Brightness / Contrast, Hue / Saturation / Lightness
- Color Balance, Color Filter, Colorize
- Desaturate, Invert
- Black to Alpha, White to Alpha

The last set of useful filters ‘Black to alpha’ and’ White to alpha’ are very useful when importing a picture with a background. This is especially great for coloring images when you import scanned line art and you would like to remove the background from it.

Support for Pen Rotation

Another feature Rebelle users wished to see is the support for various brush rotations when painting, which is now available via 3 different ways:

  • by activating the ‘Follow Brush’ setting - is used also when painting with finger or mouse
  • by activating ‘Pen tilt’ - it helps you to create a stroke with the orientation you expect and controls how the stroke is drawn (not all tablet pens​ support this feature​).
  • by activating ‘Pen rotation’ - brushstroke orientation depends on a rotation of the pen (as far as we know only Wacom Art Pen​ has this feature).

Drag & drop files 

In Rebelle 3 we implemented a possibility to easily drag & drop files, brushes, papers, color sets or stencils to appropriate panels. Drag & drop .zip assets to the main window with canvas - Rebelle will unzip and sort the assets internally. That means if you drop any image into a panel with brushes in Rebelle 3, it will create a new brush. If you drop the image into the Color Set panel, it will create a new color palette.


Improved Stencils 

New settings have been added to the stencils menu to improve the manipulation and let you gain more control over the current stencil on canvas. These are:

- Border and Tile which create a border around the stencil or create a tileable stencil.


- Lock size ratio of the stencil to keep the stencil size proportions.

„Create Stencil from Layer (image)“ - New option in the Stencils panel menu for creating a stencil from an image layer.

Magic Wand

Rebelle 3 will feature a new selection tool that will help you create selections based on the tone and color of the pixels. You can specify the Tolerance, Antialiasing, Contiguous selection, or Use Alpha channel. Tolerance determines the color range of selected pixels, Antialiasing creates a smoother-edged selection, Contiguous selects only adjacent areas using the same colors and Use Alpha determines the alpha channel of selected pixels from the background.
