Ego Eram Reputo Posted September 2, 2011 Share Posted September 2, 2011 I've been playing with this for a day or two. Basically it draws alignment lines on a layer to give the user guidelines to centering, rotating horizons, rule of 1/3rds and cropping to a fixed ratio. This plugin is designed to be run on a transparent layer, above the existing image. All renderings will be in the Primary color (unless the Secondary color checkbox is selected). *New* The UI Explained: Center Guidelines: Draws centered vertical and horisontal lines through the image, as near to the image centre as rounding will allow. The lines are linked to sliders so they can be moved. The idea is that this feature allows you to quickly divide your image into quarters and/or find the center of the image. The adjustable horisontal guideline gives you something to (re)align your image horison to (especially useful the wonky way I take pictures!). 'Rule of 1/3rds Guidelines: Divides the image (selected region) into 1/3rds horisontally and vertically. This guide can be used to find the 'rule of 1/3rds' intersections (the points of interest in an image should be closely aligned to these intersections. See this thread for more info: http://forums.getpai...rule-of-thirds/). Cropping guide: Shades a portion of the image that would be out of bounds if the images height and/or width were adjusted by the given orientation and aspect ratio. Say you wish to crop an image to 4:3 ratio in portrait orientation: simply select the cropping guide & portrait orientation then locate and select the 4:3 ratio in the dropdown list. The primary color will be used to shade the portion of the image that would lie outside this cropping area. EDIT: this feature does now work on selections. Question: Is it useful?
