Rotating pictures

Postby rpn4 » Sun Feb 06, 2011 3:02 pm

I'm a new user--less than 48 hours. When I import pictures, if they come in as a file, they are all im landscape orientation. The photos taken in portrait orientation come up as parallel lines with all the photo info not visible. I have not found a way to rotate these so that they can be painted. Help! thanks.

Assuming you are using the latest version of DAP (2.5.3), after you have opened your photo, go to the top menu and select "File\Adjust\Rotate .." and pick the option that best applies. Earlier versions of DAP did not provide this option and it was necessary to manually rotate an image before bringing it into the program.

Taking about rotating - I found something interesting, what you also can do with this feature:
when you rotate the picture, the direction of the paintstrokes vary

Example:
All with Roc's Colorful - out of the box
normal orientation 10000 strokes

for-fun_2_DAP_Colorful.jpg (231.95 KiB) Viewed 2212 times

the same rotated 90° left 10k strokes
for-fun_2_DAP_Colorful 90°left.jpg
for-fun_2_DAP_Colorful 90°left.jpg (232.09 KiB) Viewed 2212 times

and finally, the two mixed in PS

Now that is interesting. How about processing one with slight embossing and then mixing them?
Might look good might not.
All photos I use are my photos unless otherwise noted in the post.
