Odd Behavior After Flattening Layers And Saving Image


Recommended Posts

I have found what I believe to be a bug in your program.  I have a pentigon shaped image.  I also have five other images which I want to add as layers.  One of these images is added to each side of the pentigon shaped image after each image is added and positioned I flatten and save the image.

 

I decided to try to use the rotate feature found under the Layers menu to allow for easier placement of the other images.  I attempted to rotate the image so that one of the other sides of the pentigon would be straight and flat like the bottom of the pentigon is originally.  This would allow me to place each of the other images more easily instead of having to try and place them at an angle.  I flattened the image and saved it but when I tried to continue to rotate the image to the next side of the pentigon only the layer I had just added rotated NOT the whole image.  The image had been flattened and saved so there was only one layer.  Therefore the whole image should have rotated not just the layer I had just added.  I would consider this to be a bug in the program because once an image has been flattened the layers no longer exist and the image should rotate as a whole.

 

I would appreciate it if you could look into this and fix the issue.  Right now the only thing I can do is to close the image and then reopen it.  I was hoping to aviod this and just be able to continue to roate the image until I had finished adding all the other images.

 

Thanks In Advance

A screenshot would probably help as your explanation, while clear, doesn't present any visual cues as to whether this could possibly be a user error rather than a bug or glitch.

 

I myself have never experienced this problem but perhaps digging a bit deeper here could reveal a hiccup. I firmly believe that taking the extra few minutes to screen capture the main steps in your procedure might reveal something.

I feel that I described the problem very adiquately and I dont appreciate being addressed like I'm a novice.  Here are the screen grabs.   The first is called beforerotate showing the image before I attempt to rotate it.  The second is called afterrotate and shows what happens to the image when I attempt to to rotate it.  As you can see from looking at the desktop the image is a single layer, ie a single image.  Yet the rotate does not rotate the entire image only the layer that was last added to the image.  The image was flattened and saved and therefore this behavior does not seem correct to me.  Any thoughts?

 

 

Thanks

I press Ctrl-D all the time. The persistent selection can be a blessing or a curse. If I Ctrl-D and I needed to keep the selection, I feel like an idiot. Now it's Ctrl-Z, Ctrl-Z,Ctrl-Z, while I mumble "stupid, stupid,stupid"

 

Nice Digital Camo BTW.

Go out there and be amazing. Have Fun, TR

Thanks for the suggestions and the compliment on my image.  The image is one of five different styles each one has a differ style digi camo patten and will have the names of all our military services.  I have tried to be accurate by using actual camo images a well as using the same font that is used in Service Tapes

I appreciate your service to our country Sir.  Yes, you are correct, the Coast Guard is often overlooked but like the other branches of our military they have a job to do and provide a valuable service.  The objective of my graphic is two fold to pay respect to all who serve and to make a personal statement about myself.  I am unable to serve our country due to a physical disability but my family has a proud tradition of service to this country.  Dispite my inability to serve I still try to conduct myself in a manner that is consisitant with the highest traditions of our Armed Services.  The final graphic will include a banner at the bottom which reads "I Wear My Uniform On The Inside"

 

Once again, Thank You For Your Service.

Thanks

 

...your explanation, while clear...

No argument there. However, by taking two simple screen shots you in fact confirmed my suspicion that the "bug" you were encountering was a simple oversight that a user of any level of experience could make.

 

From a software creator's standpoint, I don't think I would appreciate faults or bugs being pointed out where there don't exist, especially when we are talking about freeware.

 

My point is, before jumping the gun, make sure you haven't missed something, such as the basic guidelines in the the PDN Help File.

(i.e. Also, selections may be moved, resized, and rotated: see Move Tools for more information.)

 

But don't feel bad though, a lot of us were major noobs when we started ;)

Classy.

Locked thread.

 

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.
