Big handles for cropping like GIMP

Post by CreativeWorld »

The resize/crop handles in GIMP are really big and easy to click:

Could you use the same type in XnView ? It's annoying to have to aim the mouse onto a tiny black box when you're used to just clicking anywhere along the left edge. It's not like the space is being used for anything else.

+1 but just a little bit bigger ... for me it's too big into GIMP and too small into XnView ;-)

And also please make outer area (beyond the crop rectangle) darker ;) it's suitable to preview the result of cropping while adjusting crop area ;)
But I don't think what big crop handles will be good... I think it's good enough now, as is. Big handles will disfigure picture.

This would really speed up cropping multiple images.

Is this really hard to add? It would make cropping images much faster. Note that it's not just the corners that you can grab, but the whole bars:
