Rotate / Distortion Effects


Separate from the “rotate image” tool is a dedicated Rotate Distortion tool. Unlike the “rotate image” tool, this tool can operate on any selection or subset of an image, including non-rectangular or feathered areas.

Like other distortion tools in the program, five options are provided for dealing with off-canvas pixels (clamp, erase, ignore, reflect, wrap). A dedicated Quality option uses bilinear interpolation to further improve the quality of the final image.

Finally, like all PhotoDemon tools, a dedicated command bar allows you to save and load custom presets, randomize parameters, and reset to default values. Last-used settings are automatically saved and restored, and all changes provide a real-time preview (no click or mouse button release required).
