Hi Nigel,

I really like the cropping tool with the grid overlay based on the Rule of Thirds. There are a few more photo composition rules though, and I was wondering if you guys could implement those as an overlay as well and create a property which allows to select one of these overlay grid styles and the rotation.

Here is a list of some well-known photo composition rules with links to the theory/ calculations behind it.

- Golden Section/ Phi Grid

- Golden Triangle

- Golden Rectangle/ Golden Spiral

Please keep in mind that you'd need to be able to rotate these new overlay grids!

Thanks

Nigel, I logged in and posted my suggestion, but it doesn't show up. Is the uservoice site moderated?

Anyway, looking at the number of votes that other ideas have already received, my request might take until the year 2525 (great song...) before something happens. I'd rather implement it myself then. No biggie.

Would you mind telling me in which unit the grid painting code is located?

Thanks!

Hi Uwe

Please see my latest comments at:

http://www.imageen.com/ieforum/topic.asp?whichpage=1&TOPIC_ID=823#9876

In short, what we see from the Admin console is that most of the highly rated requests actually have very few votes from actual users.

Thanks, Nigel. That makes things clearer. I reposted my request, and this time it showed up.
