Cropping wallpaper idea

Cropping wallpaper idea

Link:  Link

Submitted:  Jun 27 2003


Normally I wouldn't do this, but thought it was a good enough idea that if my wishlist recieved enough votes to get noticed, it may get implemented, and shouldn't be to hard.

The idea I propose is for a "Crop" background positioning type added to the configure desktop dialog. With this option, it would be easy to trim off the black/colored bars (or the text at the bottom, which doesn't look good with a transparent kicker) from the top and bottom of a wallpaper. This option would first crop the desired amounts from the top and bottom, then stretch the remainder in the middle to fill the desktop (there is a link icon to set them as the same number quickly as well)

I don't know about some of you, but I gimp my fair share of wallpapers just to fix this, or ignore it. If you think its a good idea, vote for my wish, if not, or have an idea for refinement, let me know.

One last thing, it would be nice to even have a GUI selection tool (maybe even on the monitor preview on the right, not visibile in my screenshot) to select exactly where to crop the image, instead of guess/check.

The wishlist is at http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60298

maybe crop it both ways? that way if you stretch the wallpaper out you won't see a wallpaper that looks horribly mis-shapen. this is not a bad idea thogh -- i do hate using gimp to make my wallpapers look decent at times :)

 Add a visual widget

That's not bad but a small view where the user can position the wallpaper visually with dragging would be way better than just the coordinates.

The coordinate view can stay where it is though, and is connected to the visual widget for fine tuning.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
