BdR Posted March 4, 2019 Share Posted March 4, 2019 (edited) I've been working with Paint.net for a while and it's great for annotating screenshots and doing quick edits on photos and images. There's just one thing that I think could be improved very easily. When you make a selection, the status bar at the bottom of the screen shows the starting coordinates and the resulting size, which is useful. However, it also shows the total pixel area, which isn't very useful IMHO. I've seen other editors (Paint Shop Pro) that display the ratio of the selection, so for example "1,3333" is 4:3 and "1,7777" is 16:9 etc. Which I've often found helpful to roughly find a nice crop selection that will also fit the desired canvas ratio. For example, to fit a cropped photo into a webpage layout, or match the required size ratio for a photo printing service. So my question is; When selecting, is it possible to replace the pixel area info with the selection ratio?
