The Affine Transform module provides a way to warp an image into a different scale, rotated and warped image. This module can be used to extra part of an image and align it to a canonical (known size and orientation) view. The affine transform will use the four selected points to create a new image that is scaled, rotated and translated based on the four coordinate points. This transform is useful for removing perspective distortion or for straightening objects within the field of view.



1. Green, Cyan, Purple, Blue squares - drag the squares to create a new rough transform

2. Coordinates - Use the text boxes to refine the coordinates

3. Options Resample - select the interpolation mode. Pixel is fastest but causes blocky results. Bilinear is smooth but slower.

4. Options Display Grid Size - to overlay a grid used when aligning to specific angles select the grid size to use for the overlay.

5. Options Transform Width & Height - Specify the resulting size you would like the selected part of the image to be transformed into.

6. Options Perspective Compensation - If you are transforming an image which exhibits depth perspective the resulting image will have corrected most of the distortion but will not change how much a pixel represents in the real world. Because of this objects nearer to the camera will demand more pixels whilst objects further back in the scene (think of a road) will retain less. Once corrected for the affine distortion this relationship will remain. The Perspective Compensation checkbox will change this relationship and provide equal amounts of pixels for foreground and background objects. Thus transformed images will show objects in the foreground and background as being the same size.

7. Grid Size - specify a grid size that will be superimposed over the current image to help in manual alignment.
