Help with rotation


Recommended Posts

Right-Click with the Move Selected Pixels tool (:MoveTool:) and drag around to rotate the current selection. You can also hold [shift] to lock the rotation to 15 degree increments.

Remember to check the status bar at the bottom of the window. When you select a tool, the left status bar text changes to indicate the commands that tool uses.

Alrighty, then you may be looking for the Rotate / Zoom... function. You can find it in the Layers menu at the top or by pressing [Ctrl]+[shift]+[Z]. This will let you rotate and pivot the layer as if it were on a 3D plane. Click the orb on the left and drag it around to pivot the canvas. Click and drag the bar in the ring around the orb to rotate.

Because I'm all about perfection, I've stopped using the classic right-click approach and started doing the following:

Create the selection

Cut it

Paste it into a new layer

On that layer, go to Layers > Flip/Rotate and adjust to whatever.

Merge the layer down

This way, the antialiasing (and overall quality) is much better.
