'Cut Out' a section vertically or horizontally

Post by JongHo »

Hi. It would be good to cut out a unnecessary section horizontally or vertically. It is like 'Delete Rows or Columns in Excel'.

It could be called as 'Ripple Deleting' by which the size of canvas is extracted.

'Delete selection'?

With a warning if the selection does not extend to the full width or height of the image (canvas)?

The term “ripple delete” is used in video editing:
Zealous crop” has already been implemented in XnView MP.

It should be full width/height of a selection.

Yes! But the empty hole is not necessary. Right after I press a shortcut or icon, the leftover sections should be merged.
