Custom Rotation?


Recommended Posts

PDN seems to only allow rotation by 90 or 180 degrees at a time. What if I want to rotate only by 45 degrees? Or even, let's say, 37 degrees if I want to.

How can I do that?

That's because an image canvas must always be rectangular with the sides parallel to the sides of the monitor. Images simply will not save as angles.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Great answer!

The borders do have to be rectangular, but the image inside the borders does not. Try selecting the image you want to rotate and hit the Move :MoveTool: tool, now holding the right mouse button down and moving the mouse rotates the image any amount.

Great addendum to my answer! :-) Thanks for filling in the gaps.
