I'm trying to rotate an image. Actually, I figured out how to rotate it. But I
can't figure out how to fill in the "empty" triangular areas that represent the
area between the edges of the original image and the horizontal and vertical
edges of the canvas. I would like to fill these spaces so it is not obvious
that the image was rotated. How can I do this?
What is the standard way to manipulate images in this manner?
I've attached a sample image that I rotated.
Thanks in advance.
crop the image to a rectangle containing only real picture elements.
Or you could apply your painting/drawing skill to fill in the triangles.
Your picture is reasonably rotated - however, the edges have been cropped to the
"canvas" - the rectangle containing the original image.
In order to keep all the detail in the picture, you would have had to "Fit
Canvas to Layers" - a selection under the "Image" tab.
Have fun, and keep exploring.
