Hello to all paint "power users".

If someone could help me on my "trivial" issue. Im a total new to this soft and just started to discover it. My experience with other graphic software was corel in which I made some basic stuff but it was very basic and a very looong time ago. I hope I will be able to describe my problem. So the story short....

I need to slant a text. Not rotate it, just slant the characters with defined angle to the both sides. For example from "TEXT" I want to make it like "TEXT" but with a defined angle. Something, like a registration number on aircraft fuselage where the text needs to be slanted in opposite direction as the text on the opposite side. Tried the rotate/zoom tool with no success. Searched the forums for a couple of days with no solution to find so as a last hope Im asking right here. Im sure it must be something simple which Im just simple don’t see. It is such a basic editing, that there must be a simple way to do it.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Alex

Quadrilateral Reshape

This will reshape as you need it.

Unfortunately, the adjustments are somewhat free-hand,
so you may want to make a screenshot of the plugin UI
showing your adjustments, for future reference.

The screenshot could be flipped horizontally to guide a
matching tilt in the opposite direction.

Thanks for the link Sarkut.

Yes thats what I was looking for. It seems to reduce the thicknes of the characters when deforming the text but I should be able to adjust it with some further editing. Will play a bit with this for a while.

Regars,
Alex

if you want to slant it at a specific angle, then on a new layer, draw a line with the line tool at that angle (the angle of the line should be shown at the bottom left of the screen), the use the plugin Sarkut mentioned to align the text with the angle of the line.

MadJik's Oblique Effect Plugin (not Tube Oblique) is probably the best way of doing this.
