Shear an Image in the GIMP Application
Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial we're going to show you how to tilt, or shear, an image in GIMP in Windows 7.
You should have the program open and an image ready to use. You can refer to our other tutorials to find out exactly how to do that. In "Toolbox", there is a selection of blue icons. One of the blue icons is "Shear Tool".
Locate and double-click "Shear Tool". "Tool Options" at the bottom of "Toolbox" will change. You can adjust the options manually. "Shear Tool" tilts the object to the left or right, depending on your preference. Your cursor will change when you move it to the canvas.
Click the image. This will bring up a grid and dialogue box.
Manually type your preferred numbers into "Shear magnitude X" and "Shear magnitude Y".
Then, click "Shear" to apply the changes.
You can also click the image again.
Click and drag the image. This will tilt it.
Once you are satisfied, click "Shear" once again. This will apply your changes.
You may need to adjust your canvas size.
