Remember DAP is montecarlo algorithm and if only one brushstroke is placed on a certain place and that is it the chance that this is the best possible brush stroke is very slim. With the montecarlo we expect that it is being refined by repetition and that at the end we will get close. You are practically asking for a different algorithm altogether. If we disallow overlapping brushstrokes the result would be very far from an image, more like random-ish splatter.
Ah; maybe a possible future mosaic program separate from DAP then. Hmmmm. lol

On my wish list of programs anyway, but maybe not for others. Just a big fan of found object mosaics (well mosaics in general). :)

Thank you
The update is expected to support - adjustable rotating brushes? (dynamic)

light settings in the "Material" does not affect the layer is added to the "Layers" :?: , here is an example ......

The open file dialog has the latest edited files in the dropdown list as discussed with Oscar previously. I am really fed up with having to choose jpg files, before the drop down list is filled.

Please excuse a slightly off-topic question, and I hope I did not miss it if it already exists ... would you also consider a kind of "DAP lite" for mobile devices, certainly with limited canvas sizes and features? Some people love playing with their smartphone, processing photos and sending edited results to buddies (with apps like e.g. "Fotor").

There are for iphones and ipods, called AutoPainter, AutoPainter II , AutoPainter III (I think).
I don't even know if they are still working on current IOS, maybe. Apple keep changing the development tools like they are going out of style. And not just small changes. Actual changes to the programming language (because that's what programmers love, to re-learn things every whim). I couldn't cope with it. Language and tools created by university academics where everyone with Phd has the next great idea so they keep changing it, adding, removing... great tools for young people (I assume) who don't need to be bothered by the old programming paradigms.

This is why I like Microsoft. Most of the time they just mess things up trying to be smart, then need to backtrack and end up pretty much where they started just a tiny bit better.... it is a very weird approach that somehow looks like big changes are being made, but in reality the end result is just being little refined old stuff with minute steps. Look at the Win7, Win8, Win8.1 Win10 and all that hula about new super-duper metro interface and no start button because no-one wants that, and here we go with Win 10.Start button is back with some changes and the metro interface is also mostly gone out of sight. Every cycle they do this, like clockwork. And my programming tools are just the same. The new Visual Studio is not much different than the VC6 I used almost two decades ago, even though it went through many pubertal changes - it ended up back where I liked it.

Well, Apple is a "parallel universe". ;)

Android has Linux roots, there you should get a little bit further with e.g. GCC, yasm, and similar OpenSource development tools. Of course, they have their own quirks sometimes.

And Windows phones and tablets ... no issues anyway. More or less the same OS as on desktops, now.

I promised myself to look into Qt. Well, it was way back and I still didn't. But it would be my choice for multi-platform development. Oh, scratch that, my true choice would be to have a team of programmers to figure all that out and I will just tell them what to do. Yes. That. One can only dream.

I'd love to see a Preset in the style of Tolle Perry

on my wishlist would be a more realistic pencil drawing / sketch... where the pencil lines follow the "shapes" and outlines.

a nice option, but not critical would be the ability to see the image painted in a 1:1 size.. it would help in determining your ideal time to stop the painting.

Oh and.... thanks for all you do ;O)
