Summary0002495: Add tool to Image Workbench to easily scale images.
DescriptionIt would be very useful to have a tool in the Image Workbench that one could pick 2 points on a planar image, or draw a line, define the desired distance between the two points or length of the line and scale the planar image to match.

I would envision the tool to work something like this, similar to the way one uses the tape measure in sketchup to scale an image -

Import the planar image.

Select the planar image

Start the Planar Image Scaling Tool

Pick the first point or start of line.

Pick the second point or endpoint of line.

A dialog box similar to the Sketcher Length dialog would be available to enter the desired distance and when clicking OK, the image would then be linearly scaled to reflect the new defined length.

Additional InformationFor reference, this is how the tool works in sketchup -
