Increase/decrease brush size with mouse wheel #970

I would love to make a modifier key that I can hold down to control brush size with my mouse wheel. I realize you can do it with +/- but those are far out of the way and its nice to be able to make quick adjustments.

Ideally I would hold down shift button to let me do that, but that is use for panning the canvas left/right. I would like it if we could configure these ourselves though so I can still use shift and not have one to pan the canvas since I don't find that useful.

Mousewheel is nice, but if you're drawing with a tablet, keys and dragging the pen is SUPER-nice. Photoshop and Tiled both support this. On Mac, it's Option+Control+ drag pen and a brush resizes on your screen. I think it's alt+right-click and drag on PC?

I would prefer to use the mouse-wheel roll to change between animation frames -- please allow the option to pick between the two. I rather enjoy the hands-free pixeling workflow this option gives me when animating -- it's a little-known workflow over the masses, but it's very comfortable to roll the wheel to scroll back and forth through the animation -- it's almost like rolling paper with your fingers in traditional animation. I use the RMB-drag to drag a rectangle selection to shift parts of a sprite (such as parts of limbs or head+torso) around, then touch them up a little (to avoid having to re-pixel the /entire/ limb / head / torso) in Graphics Gale to animate larger sprites. Additionally, I do lots of rolling my mouse to swap between frames and grabbing colors (color-picking) with right-click to animate efficiently -- Why shouldn't this one-handed (very comfortable) animation workflow be possible in Aseprite too?
