rotate and cut in one step

Postby michaauskiel » Tue Nov 17, 2009 8:37 pm

I work as a professional photographer.

At work I am sorry to use Windows and Adobe Photoshop. In my
spare time I try to do all the work with Ubuntu. That's why I'm on that
excellent program XnView encountered. The IPTC data is for me very
important. XnView does the job perfectly-thank you very much.

What I really miss would be a cutting tool that can rotate in one step
and cut (such as Photoshop, cutting tool). :(

Such a tool would save me a lot of work. So you plan such a tool for one
of the next versions???

Hallo!

it is much easier! the tool is in the toolbar. I've added a screenshot.

I would suggest the following:

how would it be like, if it were possible for 10 selected images, for example, the cut to be determined. Then press a botton and XnView calculates the clippings. That would be great!

Currently it is:
1.) Rotate whole image to straighten it.
2.) Select area
3.) Crop

The new use case would be:
1.) Select area
2.) Adjust selection (e.g. rotate if needed)
3.) Crop

Sounds like a smoother and more flexible workflow to me.

The only addition in XnView would be the possibilty to rotate the selection, right?

Already supported in 0.38.10.

    1. Start the crop tool (click toolbar button)
    2. Select a rectangle
    3. Point at a corner of the selection marque: observe rotation mouse cursor
    4. Rotate the crop by dragging a corner
    5. Clip "Crop" button on Crop toolbar

It's (very) slow but it works!

Slow=14 secs cropping to a rotated crop marque on a 4k x 6k jpg (using steps listed in my previous post).

My machine is old (Intel 2.8c, 2Gb, XP SP 3), though, so perhaps that is the cause.

Or maybe MP is doing a free rotate on the image first (to rectify the marque), then performing the crop. Free rotate in XnView 1.x has always been relatively slow.

Yes, it's a free rotate. So i think that you have almost the same time?

I'm sorry Pierre, but no:

Free rotate 20 degrees
    6000x4000 jpeg
    XnView 1.98.2: ~4 seconds

Crop to marque rotated approx 20 degrees
    6000x4000 jpeg
    MP 0.38.10: ~9 seconds

There is no feedback about rotation angle in MP. Also, there is no free rotate function in MP, so this is not an apples to apples comparison.

(Exciting possibilities in a future MP version for a more interactive rotation UI, though! :D )
