midora Posted April 1, 2013 Share Posted April 1, 2013 Plugin which allows the digital image editor "Paint.NET" to take measurements of the active selection or of the whole image. This works for regular shapes like rectangles, for irregular ones, and for not connected shapes. You may set unit, dpi and scale if you have to do measurements in a map or a technical drawing. Measured values are area and centroid of the selection area, width, height, diagonal, and angles of the bounding rectangle. So if you like to measure the distance between two points in the image just use a selection rectangle form one point to the other and check the value for 'Diagonal' in Measure Selection. You may use the resulting angle value to straighten your image using the rotate tool. Or if you need the area of a cirle just use a circle selection.
