Related to Combining rotation and straightening of images.
- Rotate: Grab a corner, drag it to its new location, rest of image follows.
- Straighten: Either click-drag-drop a line on a horizon, or click on to points on the horizon. This also works in the vertical. Program detects what is closest.
DA01's comments got me thinking: Do we really need the rotate tool in imageeditors? What if i set it up like this:
1: Radiobuttons. Choose which "main" orientation. (Got the idea from aviary.com)
2: The viewing area of the image.
A & B: "Horizonpoints" one can either click-drag-drop a line between, or click on both to make a horizon.
Thoughts? Does the rotation tool still have to work like it usually does?
Are there real life situations where one would want to rotate an image without aligning part of it to either a horizontal or vertical line?
