Distorting, shrinking, and enlarging details in a photo.


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to manually push and drag shapes in Paint.net, like pulling out a nose for example? Is there a grid net for this? The "Effects/ Distort/ Twist" feature is great, but it only pulls out forms with a twist included.

I found the "Effects/ Distort/ Bulge" function, which enlarges or shrinks areas, but only on a big scale. I would like to enlarge or shrink small defined details, like eyes in a face. Can it be done?

Thank you! :)

I couldn't get Power Stretch to work though. Downloaded both 2.0 and 1.0, but the files will not open. :( What am I doing wrong?

Curmudgeon: Dragging on one of the nubs of a "circle" or "lasso" only enlarges the area within the space, so the form doesn't blend with the outside.

Power Stretch is tricky to use, because it only allows stretching horizontally and vertically (compensating each other to some degree). And only indirectly, through calculating place, size, and degree in the separate Power Stretch window. You can't go directly into the picture and pull and stretch. I guess it requires a bigger program for it to be able to work like the distort function in Corel Paint Shop for example.

If the image was on a transparent background, it would be a great choice...but your original post was pretty vague as to the situation, so I tossed out the idea
