Thread: Invert selection feature

  1. #1

    Default Invert selection feature

    Every now and then, I find the need to be able to invert a selection.

    Example use case: I could highlight a region in a screenshot by applying a (brightening, blurring, ...) filter on all other areas of the screenshot.
    This would be easy if I could select the region of interest --> invert selection --> apply filter.

    I found an old thread mentioning the same request, from 2007: https://irfanview-forum.de/showthread.php?t=30

    Any interest in adding a feature like this?

    Just come here to request exactly this. Seems like it would be a simple enough addition and have a need for it surprisingly often, so end up having to open up Gimp instead.

    Please let us know if you have sent the request to Irfan Skiljan, and what his response was. Then I will update the thread.

    What's the point of a feature request section in the forum then?

    One could also ask, “What is the point of Sticky Threads?”
