Resizing to my TV screen


Recommended Posts

I'd try Rotate/Zoom first. REF: https://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/RotateZoom.html

 

Reason: what you're trying to achieve is almost the same as the example image on that webpage

The problem with Rotate/Zoom is that it only produces one degree of perspective distortion. Essentially, the viewing distance is fixed, and likely won't match the viewing distance to the monitor screen.The sides will converge to the vanishing points too quickly, or not quickly enough.

 

You could try my (beta) Perspective Transformation. Sadly, that's not a perfect solution, either, but with a bit of experimentation, you can probably make it work. The basic idea is to put the screen image into a layer above monitor image, then move the corners around to match the corners of the screen. It will probably require changing the XY Proportion to get the aspect ratio correct. I suggest drawing a white outline of the screen on a transparent layer between the monitor photo and the screen image to make the corner alignment easier.

Love old technology like that which can still be used and enjoyed. 

 

I've got a working Atari STFM if you want it 😁 Man I learned machine code of that baby!
