    rotate a crop

    DSSSAU
      I have scanned an image and unfortunately my alignment is not square - so before I need to crop, I want to rotate the crop marks. How does one do this in Fireworks? Thx!

          Don't have that functionality in FW so you would have to rotate the
          image first then crop.

            Thanks for the response. Guess we are looking at a feature request here!

            Appreciate it.

              no not really, as the image will be on a square format: even if you
              could crop at a slight rotation the resulting total image would still be
              exactly square/rectangular. rotate your scan first like in any other
              program ;)

                dave,

                actually in Photoshop you can drag out the Crop Tool and before
                performing the crop, rotate it to line up with horizontal or vertical
                line then crop. The result is that you rotate AND crop in one operation.

                I think DSSAU was thinking of this. It would be a nice feature to see in
                Fireworks.

                  One could also use Bridge for the crop and rotate which in general is
                  non destructive when done via Camera Raw.

                    alex - my version of PS isn't that new ;) (at least i don't think it's
                    in ps6??) :)
                    could be a nice feature though

                      :)

                      Yes, it was a nice addition to, I believe, CS2.
