Amerifax-Bob Posted July 18, 2007 Report Share Posted July 18, 2007 I have posted this message at a bunch of different places and just can't seem to find a response. Thought I would post here and hope for the best... Everybody says Photoshop can DO. I say sure!?!? 1. I want to rotate a cocked page when I do a clip. 2. I never know the exact percentage or degree of rotation, that’s strictly a guess. 3. What I do know is usually some kind of a straight line or edge in picture. a. Good example would be a scan of a book’s front page. It usually has a “title” that is horizontal to the page. This is my starting point. Solution: 1. If I draw a line horizontal to the “title”, and can execute crop I have my solution providing the program knows that that line is the horizontal of my picture. 2. Here’s my way of thinking for this. If I can draw the line as I indicated above and hit enter and it goes horizontal that’s good. But some Photo program is going to take it to the next step. And I hope it’s you. Two buttons that can interact with that horizontal line. a. Horizontal button would rotate the page whereas your line would end up horizontal. b. A vertical button would rotate the page where your line is vertical or perpendicular. Bottom line a photo editing program that has a crop tool that can crop based on a line you draw over your picture that can go vertical or horizontal. It would automatically line the picture up to be perfectly horizontal or vertical. I hope this explains to you what my needs are. Do you have a work around for what I’m trying to do? I do have macro capabilities with Macro Express. Bob Trying to do the rotation by degrees is like trying to spread butter on bread on a baked potato with a hot fork. You know if nobody else has this and it’s something new it would be like a shoe manufacturer making shoes with no way to hold them on and someone coming around and saying hey why don’t we use laces on those. You have a page from a book that you scanned and it is maybe > 10-15 degrees off from being straight. In other words the picture is > cocked. Then on that page you have a title and that title is 'This Is > the Story of Computers.' What you would do is draw a line under 'This > Is the Story of Computers', clicking A (horizontal) would cause that > page to rotate to a perfect picture view. If you click B (vertical) > that page would rotate to a perfect landscape view; in this case that > would be an undesirable choice. But in some cases that would be a > desirable value.
