Can I change the direction of the simulated wood grain?

Postby kristenanne77 » Mon Nov 14, 2016 2:23 am

Is it possible to change the angle of the simulated wood grain. Right now its vertical, and I would like it horizontal to more representative of the wood I am using.

Thanks

Good judgement comes from experience.

I went through the video. I copied the wood bit texture and "rotate Right" and renamed these files.. The picture shows up as rotated.
After closing and reopening program, the new label given to the rotrated pictures were there but the pic were not rotated. I went back into the bitmap database and the rotated pictures were still rotated , so how come they don't show up as rotated when I reopen the program?

Thanks

What program did you use to rotate them?

I had the same problem recently with Windows 10 photo viewer... The Windows 7 viewer would actually rotate & save the rotated version w/o having to perform additional steps.

So, assuming you're using Windows 10...

The Windows 10 viewer main window Rotate function (between Edit & Delete) only shows it rotated, but doesn't actually rotate it. But you can actually rotate it within 10's viewer. Select the Edit tab just to the Left of Rotate, 2 new tool bars will open. If you the select rotate, (Right side tool bar - between Enhance and Crop) it will actually rotate the image and save it that way for any other applications that use the image.

Or you can open the image in another image editor and rotate/save it from there.
