You should allow ppl to provide the name to the file to save. Some ideas:

  • Create a 2nd sketch and design the input form there (hard way)
  • Use a Java widget, an input box (Easier way)

// GLV Paint
// Version 0.01
// 2019-11-30

// Changes:
// Major bug that caused a "NullPointerException " now fixed.
// Major update to comments.
// Intuitive interface; key letter matches first letter of function. 
// Ergonomic postioning for 3 finger control with left hand or right hand!
// Can now change color with mouse wheel or keypad!
// A 125% increase in drawing area!
// Saved image now has a name that makes sense! Saves to "image.png"
// More updates in future.
// And it was all made possible with Processing!
// :)

Thank you so much for updating GLV paint, was really looking forward to it. Loved the 125% increase in the drawing area, works perfect for my screen.

Hope you guys like my drawing of a breakdancing frog

It is this kind of support from the community that will keep this project alive.

That black line is a bug for sure.
You can look forward to a Version 0.02 update in the future!
