crop tool

Post by Marpel »

Latest version.

Couple questions/comments

Using the Crop Tool, with a preset Proportion, the crop boundary is initially automatically set with the center coinciding with the center of the image. If the corner points are moved, the center of the crop moves away from the center of the image.

Question - Is there a way to, regardless of change in size of the crop, to keep the center of the crop at the center of the image (unless the center point itself is moved of course) when a preset Proportion is identified?

And, if either the lower left or upper right corners are moved, the opposite corner remains stationary (so the crop "revolves" around these opposite corners). In contrast, if the upper left or lower right corners are moved, the same rule does not appear to apply as their opposite corners seem to move randomly.

Question - Is there a reason (that may be useful) for this behaviour?

And last, it seems weird that, when the Proportions is set to an identified crop proportion, the margins can be changed and the crop boundary changes only on that side, even though that change is not constrained by the Proportions (The Margins numbers are grayed out but they change anyway when + - is clicked).

This is turning out to be a lot more complicated to fix that I expected -- still reworking the code to handle all the cases correctly.
