Scaling drawings unproportionally?

Post by Tarawi » 03 Nov 2017, 12:03

Hi!
I'm new to TV Paint, and I'm trying to figure out all the tools in the program. For some reason I can't find an option where I could scale the drawing I've made unproportionally (only width or only height). The transform tool scales both width and height proportionally, and I can't find a way so scale them separately. Could you please tell me where to find a tool like that, or is there no such tool?

I've read some old forum posts (2008) about this topic, and people talked about turning the drawing into a custom brush with CutBrush, and then scale the brush unproportionally. This seems quite complicated and time consuming, but I thought maybe that was outdated information.

I'm using Win 8 64-bit and TV Paint version 11.0.6 standard edition

Thank you for your time (:

Try using the Warp tool instead, grab the handle in the middle of a side.

All those fancy new names for tools instead of the olden proven ones! *shakes walking stick*

So what? I still remember my FreeHand shortcuts from 1994, and how to load a 35 mm camera!

A language that does not evolve is a dead language :wink: Actually, the rule applies to anything :lol:

I don't mind you still use the old names, but if you try to help someone with wrong information, that help will be mostly confusing.

Thank you for your answers! I'm so used to Photoshop and other Adobe software, that it didn't even cross my mind that it could be combined with the perspective tool. But it makes sense! :)
