Description Mikolaj Machowski 2007-06-16 15:32:25 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
OS:                Linux

When you have picture 100x100 pixels and you will rotate it 45 degrees
Digikam forces you to reduce image to fit in original canvas of 100x100
pixels.  In effect real image is reduced to ca. 70x70 pixels. Instead
canvas should be increased to ca. 140x140 pixels to accommodate original
image in full size.

Well, filing it as a bug wasn't intentional but... I will leave that. Forced scaling down blurres image, reducing quality of it so it can be considered bug.

Isn't this fixed? When I have an image of 200x200 pixels and I rotate it 45 degrees, the image becomes 283x283 pixels, so it actually increases the canvas. Or am I misunderstanding something now?
Comment 3 Mikolaj Machowski 2008-07-23 18:57:30 UTC
yes, thanks. I am using this so often and didn't even noticed. My only excuse is that I usually use this with fraction of 1 degree. 

Thanks Andi - and to one who fixed that of course :)
