Cropping wallpaper idea

Cropping wallpaper idea

Description:

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.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
