Here is another article to propose ideas on how to improve perspective tool.
As usual, only mockup and ideas here. No codes.
I made it because I felt driven by the sincere desire to propose a cool design.
Solving problems on user side and designing an ultimate feature was a fun brainstorm for me.

Konqui the friendly dragon , by Stefan Spatz , has been KDE's mascot for over ten years now. Being the mascot of one of the major desktop environment for Linux is a hard task, and after rapid search for image, you can see above Konqui have fans and has been around for a while.

As you probably know I switched since 3 month mostly all my digital painting workflow to the open source Krita. The new Krita 2.4 will be out really soon now ( by the end of month ). So, in a near future, everyone will be able to install it with the regular package manager of his/her Linux distribution. Very exiting time to know it because Krita 2.4 is in my opinion ready for production work. But to reach this quality, the Krita team worked really hard. So, I wanted to blog a bit about an old Krita challenge and my relation with the project. Back on a bit of history ....
