    image manipulations



      My app provides for some image manipulations and the I need to be able to do the following sequence of operations:
      1) Rotate an image by 90 deg.
      2) Rotate the image in step 1, by another 90 deg.
      4) Save the image.

      However, I cant seem to be able to chain the effects together, so for e.g. Step 2 above gets applied on the original image instead of the output of 1. The code is shown below. I expected the second invocation to the rotateImage method to act on the output of the first, but this does not seem to be the case:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <mx:Application xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" xmlns:buffers="cloudhub.buffers.*" layout="absolute" creationComplete="init()">
      import mx.controls.Image;

      public var temp: Class;

      public var imageSource: Image;

      private function init():void
      imageSource = new Image();
      imageSource.source = temp;
      private function rotateImage():void {
      var tempStore:BitmapData = new BitmapData(myComponent.width,myComponent.height);
      var rotmatrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
      tempStore.draw(imageSource,rotmatrix);// just works for the first time rotate
      //tempStore.draw(myComponent,rotmatrix); This will work
      imageSource.source = new Bitmap(tempStore);

      <mx:Image id="myComponent" source="{imageSource.source}"/>
      <mx:Button label="ClickMe" click="rotateImage()">


      The rotateImage() method assigns a new Bitmap to the "source" of the imageSource on each method call. The new Bitmap is the resultant Bitmap of the original image after an effect (say Rotate) is applied to it. Every thing works fine for the fist time the rotateImage() is called. On the second invocation there seems to be no change, while what is expected is a rotation of 90degrees from the current state. Think its some problem with the data binding.

      Any pointers on what I am doing wrong would be appreciated?

      Thanks in advance
