Hey JGO, hopefully this is the right board.

You know how in MSPaint it only allows for a certain degree of rotation? (90/180/flip horizontal/vertical)

Is there a paint program out there that allows you to have FULL CONTROL over object/region rotation?

NOTE: I'm trying to take a piece of text and rotate it at to a certain angle.

Pretty much any image editing/art program other than paint will support something like this. There have been threads about this on here, but off the top of my head you can try photoshop, gimp, or paint.net.

Gimp crashes when it loads fonts lol. Undecided Undecided Undecided Undecided

If I even open another window it crashes (Not responding)

I'll just invest my time into game programming VS. game graphics for my project.

Thanks jimmt.

I use Paint.NET and I think it is perfect for everything... You can rotate by selecting it then choosing the 'move selection' tool and right click and drag...

Also, if there is something which isn't in Paint.NET you can search up on the internet and most likely there will be a plugin someone else made... Infinite possibilities... I have about 30 plugins, some of which include: drop shadows, object align, tile fill, liquid image, etc.

Sry for advertising, my brother says I have a bad habit of it... Smiley

Is it sad that I still get a fright when the computer beeps at me...

I highly recommend Paint.NET for really good casual image editing on Windows. Much more advanced image editing is reserved to Gimp and Photoshop.

Not really... If you look on the internet some people can make some really great stuff... One person even made a plugin pack which added a few of the stuff which you can do in Photoshop and everything else in photoshop can also be done with plugins...

Nope Cool, I could draw the text in Java2D than rotate it, but I'd like to pre-rotate the text and save it in the .png VS. programmatically rotating the text to the desired angle every frame.

It's a icon that has 2 lines of text, but I need the 2 lines of text to be at a certain angle Tongue

EDIT: Downloading Paint.net now.

Yeah it's crashing :/

I know this isn't a gimp support thread but I'll post what happened:
I've tried letting the fonts do their loading for 10 minutes, still nothing.
While loading the fonts if i clicked on another window/did anything on my PC it would crash (Window title: Not responding)

NOTE:
Just downloaded Paint.net, although I don't need it now Tongue
I needed it for the monopoly clone I was making but decided to stop working on it.
(I'll be creating a thread in shared code and release the unfinished project)

Shouldn't it go in WIP, not shared code?

Thanks, I wasn't sure wether or not to post it there as it's no longer a "Work in progress".

It's an "unfinished project" but not a WIP? Abandonware?

So rotate the text once, and draw it into an Image?

Embedding text in graphic resources is a bad habit that should be avoided whenever possible; makes localisation a lot more difficult.
Probably not a concern for your project, just something to keep in mind going forwards.
