...Hi. Is this a good place to make a feature request?...
This is a suggestion for a tool, for a future version of gimp. It's an idea
I had when I saw the 'dove evolution' video, where they retouch a photo of a
girl's face, making her neck longer, her eyes bigger, etc. With liquify (ps)
and iWarp (gimp), you can do something similar, but it gets all blurred out,
and you don't have enough control.
So my idea is, adding dots to an image, gimp creates triangles with those, and
then, you can move the dots, and gimp deform each triangle to fit the new
position of the moved dots.
The deformation feature is already in gimp, with 'shear' and 'distort'; so the
only thing that might take long is the user interface. The dots should be moved
individually, in groups, rotated in group, and scaled in group.
The advantages of this idea for a tool, is that it doesn't blur (just deforms),
you can choose what is affected and what's not (ex: move the head to make neck
longer, leaving the head and the rest of the body intact, and the neck
stretched), and you have a lot of precision.
It's just an idea that might have lot of uses.
