Add In-painting checkmark option for the Straighten tool

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, congrats again for the awesome launch of Affinity Photo!

 

I had this idea: it would be great if filters and commands (such as Straighten / Rotate while Cropping) had a checkbox enabling an "Inpainting" option to fill in the newly blank pixel areas with Affinity's awesome Inpainting algorithm. While it might not work perfectly every time, it gives a decent starting point for further cloning and clean-up without sacrificing the images original size due to cropping.

 

Thanks for considering this, I think it would be a very handy option.

 

Cheers!

Are you talking about an option that would automatically inpaint the missing areas?  I agree that would be very handy.  I currently use Clone to fill in blanks after a Straighten but that's not always a good solution.

Yes LilleG exactly, an option to detect the newly blank areas and fill them in automatically using the In-painting algorithm...

It would also be handy if the In-Painting feature had two options (radio buttons): one for non-destructive mode (default) and the other for destructive mode, meaning, the first option would create the missing pixels on a new layer above the current one being rotated/straightned, and so the original data would not be touched, while the second option, would basically merge both the In-Painted pixels and the original layer...

 

2 more cents...
