Multiply map layers instead of translucency
« on: June 30, 2012, 13:03:39 »
Hi.
Maps overlays option is great, it can be very useful and it was long awaited. Se we are all happy it works great now. But it is not ideal. Transparency/ translucency is not perfect, because even if the background of the layered map is white, it will cover a lot of details from the second layer. So my idea is to introduce "Multiply blend mode" which will make the layers perfect. All of this is shown on this picture, I hope it is readable:

Great Idea! But make it choosable (for example a checkbox in front of the transparency slider). When the checkbox is selected, the slider will be disabled.)
