howto Align/rotate

Recommended Posts

When I have a scan or photograph which is not horizontal, i want to align it. Currently it's a trial and error itteration. In other photo editors there is an align function:

you pick 2 points on a straigh element in the picture (and a grey help line is drawn between them)

then you tell if this line has to be perfect horizontal or vertial. On OK the app determines the angle to rotate.

Should not be too hard to add this very wanted functionality?

General Failure, What Extra is saying is that PDN does have this:

What i want is: click to points on a pic (which are not exactly horizontal) and the app should calculate the angle and make it horizontal.

But, to get the same effect you can use this:


Its just a little more manual work with the "Roll" function...

1) with a big pict it is slow

2) the only reference you have is when you position the dialog along the line. That is not very accurate.

I just wanted to point to a simple, but very convenient functionality, which was not yet in paint.net.

the method youu give is a kind of workaround.

For my job i have a bunch of pics with photographic screenshots of a PLC screen (no direct printscreen possible)

with photoshop the alignment is quick and correct. with paint.net its a lot of work

Thread is close to a decade old. Paint.net has changed a lot since then.

Please ignore old threads. If you wish to restart a discussion, please just begin a new thread. Thanks.
