Bug / Issue — Paste of Images Changes their Aspect Ratio
« on: October 16, 2005, 12:50:21 PM »
I was making a screenshot where I wanted to add together two screenshots (before/after) of a window into one screenshot. I made the first shot, then the second. I then changed canvas size of the second shot to be double the width, then selected all of the first shot, copy to clipboard, then paste into the second shot. First it didn't work, so I tried selecting, then it pasted, but not in my selection and it changed the aspect ratio of the first shot distorting it! I would like that copied images retain their aspect ratio and don't distort when being pasted as objects.

Oh, and screenshot captor rocks  :-* btw (not having frequented this forum yet)! ;)

Actually - slightly mea culpa - but still a bug in there:

The above images were different sizes - still doesn't explain why the aspect ratio was destroyed though.

However, the following image is two full screens joined (identical orginal sizes). I doubled the canvas width and cut/psted using the SC edit menu.

The right hand image should be identical in size to the left hand image, but is in fact slightly smaller. Aspect ratio however is preserved.

Strange ...

Also I noticed moving larger objects (like whole screen shots) is really slugish (like move about wait 20 seconds, move another bit ...)

yeah, its really not very good at moving such large images :(

i'll check out the aspect ratio thing - i was actually thinking of adding some functions that would help automate some of these processes like placing two images side by side, etc.

i think it was shrinking one dimension to fit it in screen and not both - i'll fix that.
