BoltBait's Skew Plugin v1.0

 

Once installed, find Skew Horizontal and Skew Vertical in the Effects > Distort menu:

 

SkewUI.png

Skew Vertical pretty much looks the same.

 

Download:

 

Until I add this to my latest plugin pack, you can download it here...

 

Skew.zip

 

To install this plugin, download skew.zip to your desktop, unzip all files to your desktop, and run the Install_Skew.bat file to install the Skew.dll file to your Paint.NET Effects directory.

  • BoltBait changed the title to Skew v1.0 (with source code)
  • 2 weeks later...

BoltBait  I Really like this.  I don't understand it, but I do like the pretty skews and skew-ers  and all.  I have enclosed a mighty work of artistic doggerel, to show you.

p.s. pay no attention to me, it is a great bit of program writer-ry  an all.

  Age is only  a number --in my case a Really BIG number, but there you have it

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️

Hi Boltbait. Could you please extend the range of your skew plugin. Having a skew angle setting would be helpful. 

Consider the attached image. To horizontally "de-skew" this chart one needs more range than what your plugin provides.

Thanks.

She want to define the skew based on angle (I think that is what she wants).

 

You can actually find the skew displacement at the end points based on angle by this formula (for horizontal skew):

 

#hh is Height - 1 or end y indice#

const dist=hh/2*tan(ang);

I'm not seeing a problem with your chart. Are you seeing an optical illusion that bends the top of the chart downwards?

 

I tried drawing a purple rectangle around the chart, and it seems to be orthogonal (which actually surprised me).

Could you show me what you're trying to accomplish?  (Even a rough sketch would be fine.)

I had to uncheck your "Fine control" to get the extent of horizontal skewing i needed. Here are the before and after pictures. For example, the red dots should be vertical and all at the 2e-17 V/NBC value afterwards.

Addendum to my last post. I forgot to mention a request that would be helpful to control skewing. Would you consider a skew angle input since your slider scale doesn't seem to be in degree/radian units and allows decimals for finer control of angles? One could skew these curve traces to a better precision needed to extract data points from the curve with extraction software (e.g. webplotdigitizer) that is orthogonal axis based. There are probably other use cases besides this but that is currently mine. Thanks.

I'm actually working on porting my gmic skew filter into skew plugin using @BoltBait original code as a starting point. That filter has angle input.

 

EDIT: I got something here though I don't know how to work with this too well. Maybe the author will improve this code.

Great! Also notice that when i skewed my original picture, the plugin did not enlarge the size of the resulting image automatically but instead cropped off parts of the curves on the right. Maybe an automatic enlargement option would be handy. Thanks.

That's not possible with PDN. Also skewing with a large angle means that the enlarged picture would very big easily. If using 80 degree, the enlarged picture would add 5k to both side for 1k picture.

To bad about the PDN. I would imagine that even a limited enlargement would still help in a lot of cases. Anyway, thanks for your update and look forward to using the upgrade.

There is no direct way to do it but the enlarged result could be saved on the clipboard or in a file.

You may have look how the Spirit Level plugin handles the case that after rotating parts of the image are outside of the surface.
