Shear

 

Press the Shear Button to display the Shear window which is used to stretch any included graphics images in either the vertical or horizontal direction.

 

Shearing can be visualized by thinking of an image superimposed onto a flexible rubber sheet. If you hold the sides of the sheet and move them up and down in opposite directions, the image will undergo a spatial stretching known as shearing. The shear operation shears an image either horizontally or vertically.

Description

 

 

Shear Horizontal

The Shear Horizontal check box indicates that the graphics image should be stretched along the horizontal axis.

 

 

Shear Vertical

The Shear Vertical check box indicates that the graphics image should be stretched along the vertical axis.

 

 

Shear Amount

The Shear Amount is the shear scaling factor to be applied to the pixel coordinate  positions.

 

 

X Translation

The X Translation is any translation factor to be applied to X coordinate positions.

 

 

Y Translation

The Y Translation is any translation factor to be applied to Y coordinate positions.
