Change canvas size using the mouse


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I was wondering whether you could add the ability to change canvas size using the mouse, I'm not very good at guessing how far across 852 pixels is. It would be really cool, I mean Paint.NET is already cool but it would be cooler.

 

Warmest regards,

This would be annoying if you changed the size on accident. Not to mention, it would be hard to get an exact size.

Hi there, thanks for your reply. However, if you change the size by accident then surely you'd jjust click the "undo" button. Also, I'm not saying to do away with the current method, I'm suggesting adding the mouse method as an addition.

Yes, this would be very useful for me too. 👍

 

Now, I usually double the sizes or add another 1000 pixels, just to get enough room. And then later "Crop to Selection" to get the desired size.

With this suggestion, it would simplify this process.
