I have the following problem in both a repeater that shows
thumbnails, and in a full screen panel that holds a single image.
The problem is that if i scale an image, then try to rotate it, it
revolves around an arbitrary (or so it seems) center, not the real
The images on the repeater are rotates using their "rotation"
property, the image in the panel is rotated using an effect.
I haven't tried this in Flex but I'll take a stab at what the
problem might be based on general graphicsy knowledge. Usually
rotations occur around the origin. So I guess the problem is being
caused by the origin remaining in the same place despite the
scaling. Does the scaled image rotate around the center of the
original image? If so, try rotating first and then scaling.
