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.
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?
