gimp-like perspective move-tool

Recommended Posts

i couldn't see this in the feature requests sticky.

i need to drag the nubs with the move tool to stretch the image into shape.

is there a plugin that can do it?

the rotate/zoom can do it,but not very easily.

forgive me if this has been discussed before,i did do a search but i'm not exactly sure of the correct terminology.

i love paintdotnet and this is the only think that's missing for me.

thanks,but i'm not sure if it can do what i need.

i need to be able to select an unequal-sided rectangle from within my image then stretch it to fit the images full rectangle.

what it is,when i've taken a photo of a painting and it's slightly tilted,i need to stretch it to fit the corners of the image.

sorry if i'm not being clear.

Cut out the painting (with the line tool and the magic wand) and copy it to a new layer. Resize the painting to make it larger, then use the aforementioned plugin to trim down edges.

Octagonal/Quad reshape/matte plugin is almost but not quite. :(

But for your needs it should work just as well.

Actually what he's trying to do is pretty common in most image editing programs. I'm also looking for that function. It's quite handy for adjusting images for distance variations such as your signature image...

These are done with a simple selection editor in a program called Serif PhotoPlus called a Deform Tool, it has a center that can be moved, and all the 6 nodes can be pulled around the center, shifted, alted, ctrl'd and combo's of them to get a desired effect. A few of the deform tools effects are equal to just adjusting the size of the selection, but it's the corner pulling effects that we need, and in a tool(button), not plugin.

It also does vertical mirroring. The effect is actually quite nice and needed, check it out (for research of course) it's free.

Yeah, I know what the tool does.

But from spacedad's post about why he need this tool, Octagonal/Quad reshape/matte plugin should be enough.

I too, am waiting for a more powerful version for Paint.NET.

i tried what you said but it's not very accurate,a lot of guess work in that little box.there's no guidelines.unless i'm doing it wrong,i'll keep trying,but it looks like i still need to keep my gimp for now.

i hope it gets put on the request list as an extra function for the move tool.

cheers for all the help!
