Rotate / Tilting / Roll an image is very cumbersome

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've been using this app for ages, quite happy with it.

I feel like one of the weaker functions is the rotate / zoom tool.

 

I can click the small 'ball' and drag it - but it's particularly aggressive in how it moves.

 

I want it on a perfect horizontal plane, just make the left size of the image 'zoom out' (get smaller) and the right side of the image get larger - and I'd like to do it in very fine increments and DEAD even - no up or down tilt, I've managed to line that up right.

 

How can I do this? because apparently I need to manipulate not 1 but 2 numbers (??)  the second one down and the 3'rd one down.

 

 

Sorry to be critical, it's a great app but this particular function is not ideal to work with.

Hold down the shift key to constrain the tilt to horizontal or vertical. Use the numerical controls for fine position adjustments.

Greetings Hamwizard,

 

Using the Zoom/Rotate is not bad if you keep this in mind

Under the Roll / Rotate  setting: Keep the middle slider set to either 90 or -90 to establish your horizon.

When your horizon is set to 90; the bottom slider will tilt your image forward or back to its original position.
When your horizon is set to -90; the bottom slider will tilt your image backwards  or back to its original position.

When your horizon is set to 90 or -90; the top slider will rotate your image around 360 degrees

using MJW's suggestion of holding the the Shift key while using the mouse to manipulate the globe; constrains your movements to either going left/right or up/down, but will not allow rotation until the Shift key is released.
