    help with painter

    I seem to have the sketch I'm painting skewed on the page. Something to do with the layers I think, and the fact that I was rotating the picture to paint it. Does anyone know how to straighten it out? Thanks

    Double click the little rotation icon in your tools menu.

    Hi Davi and Bloodstone, thanks for trying to help. I tried both ways and neither worked. It looks like my sketch is skewed on the canvas itself. Some of the picture is missing, I guess because of the way it's sitting. I still have the original and have decided to start over. I might get Adien to post the crooked one for me and once you see it you might be able to tell me how to fix it for future use. Thanks again. Much appreciated.

    possibley try saving the image as a psd file and opening it in photoshop, fixing the problem, save, then reopen in painter.

    are you sure the top of your wacom tablet isn't scratched up? I've had that problem before

    Hi Davi, I don't have a wacom yet. Maybe next week. I'm using a mouse for now. I'll see if I can open it in photoshop though. It's the first time I've used painter, so I have no idea what happened. Thanks for your help, I'll let you know if it works out.

    Hi Davi, I saved my picture to a psd file and tried fixing it in photoshop, to no avail. Tried everything I could think of. So I'm just going to trash it. I already started another one. Thanks for all the help you tried to give me. It's much appreciated. I won't rotate the next one for sure!! lol
