Suggestions & Thoughts

Recommended Posts

I've been using Photo for some time now, but a few ideas have come to mind that might be adopted (or perhaps they already have been):

  1. The use of the 'Shift' key to retain aspect ratio when dragging, e.g. crop box.
  2. Snap the crop border when exceeding the actual image size, but allow it to exceed the limits if so wished.
  3. Introduce a 'bias' when resizing the canvas. Although the nine individual biases are useful, sometimes I would find it useful to introduce a variable bias. For example, reducing the width, but biased 20% to the right and 80% to the left. Perhaps a dialog with a thumbnail and adjustable sliders. I appreciate that a simple crop does that job, but it's not always easy to do it at a pixel level.
  4. A right-click of the mouse to call up dialogs pertaining to the tool in use, e.g. size, flow, hardness
  5. Make the tabs for each image a set size (not the entire width of the window) and only reducing them when there is a lack of room.

As I said, these are just suggestions that may prove useful to some users.

It is best to provide such requests individually in separate threads, after searching to ensure they are not already present.  #4 has definitely been requested on other threads, and offhand I think #1 might have been also?

It already does, with Snapping enabled and appropriate Snapping options chosen.
