GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 313387
Add stock items for rotate flip
Last modified: 2006-10-11 16:02:17 UTC
This would be handy for all kind of image viewers such as eog/gthumb/f-spot

The tar ball contains the flip / rotate icons from eog and two 24x24 versions
of the rotate left and right icons which were made by me
Setting as an enhancement.
Moving this to gnome-icon-theme. It has already stock icons for images. So this
would be a nice addition
Could somebody take a look at the icons in the attachment and decide if they can
be added to the gnome-icon-theme.
the 24x24 versions need a little touch up. The rounding is quite jaggy.
Otherwise it's a decent action icon to have in gnome icon theme, rodney?
I know you guys are probably busy with Tango, but eog is really starting to
rock. Would be a shame that the blurry rotate icons would remain in GNOME 2.14.
If anybody want to step in and commit the icons that f-spot ships to
gnome-icon-theme, feel free.
Sorry. I think we should avoid committing new things that don't follow the
naming spec. We need to look over this, decide on proper names, put them in the
spec (if they aren't already), and then commit them with those names, I think.
They are not in the spec yet. What about?
Are you planning on adding rotate-right, rotate-left and flip icons to the icon spec in the 2.15 time frame??
It would be a shame that eog would ship yet another release with very fuzzy icons :-(
Ping. This is really important bug for many apps.

On Lucas request I did the icons. Thoumas suggested that I should use a similar metaphor as Picassa uses, as those are quite clear.
I wouldn't do 270 degree arrows, but rather 90 degree ones like in gimp -
for flip I'd probably not do the gimp's flip tool, but a simple arrow as well:
Jakub; ok, I'm not sure I agree with you. However, I do trust you and your judgement, so anyone responsible for this, please put Jakubs icons in.
The question remains though if these should be shipped with the application or put in the icon set(s).
I'd vote for putting them in an icon set. Rotating is quite common in applications. To name a some
Since you resolved the bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5955 which requests that rotate-right and rotate-left are added to the spec can you put the icons of Jakub in the gnome-icon-theme and the tango theme.
I´d also vote for adding the flip icons to the spec and to the themes
The flip icons are also in the spec. Jakub can put his icons in g-i-t when he finishes up all the sizes. I don't see any particular need to add them to tango-icon-theme though.

Why wouldn't you want to add them to the tango-icon-theme? The icons are part of the spec right? Why shouldn't the tango-icon-theme cover them?
We can't have the same icons in both themes. Tango can cover them sure, but this bug is against gnome-icon-theme, not Tango. The icons must be different between the two themes. The latter's bugzilla is at bugs.freedesktop.org and not here. If you want icons in tango-icon-theme for these actions, feel free to file a separate bug there.

Jakub, please don't add other blue icons (see bug 348407). Something chocolate like the F-Spot rotate icons is good, IHMO. Whe should also avoid green and yellow 'cause those are often used in undo/redo icons.

SVG icon for rotate left (chocolate taste)
A chocolate colored SVG icon, as the current one in F-Spot, but using the shape that Jakub suggested for GIMP-Tango. Feel free to use, edit and commit (it's LGPL)

Just like the previous one, but for object-rotate-right named icon
Just wanted to make you aware of bug 355257. F-spot wants to use more themable icons and those rotate icons would be nice to have.

Another shape for rotate icons
To avod "shape collision" with edit-undo|redo icons, here is another point of view for rotate actions.
Those icons are in Office Base Kit from iconkits.com (http://www.iconkits.com/for_sale/office_base_kit/)
Have a look at those icons from Lapo:
They are really nice IMHO.
I like what Lapo has created. I vote for the orange version as it's not used too often.
Commited Lapo's icons to gnome-icon-theme
