Aligning of Images

Recommended Posts


I'm a new user of Paint,NET and possibly my question bears no problem.

I very often take over Images by a scanner. Then I cannot avoid that the image appears not aligned, i. e. out of  perpendicularity.


Is there a possibility to align the scanned picture?  Under Image I only found to rotate 90° clockwise or antic. or 180°, nothing else.


Thank you for your help.

The manual method without plugins: Press Ctrl + A to select the entire image. Press M to activate the Move tool. Click and drag with the right mouse button.
