#15836 new defect

Always a big gamble on what zoom levels and position the new image will end up being overlayed

Reported by: jidanni Owned by: rebsc
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Plugin piclayer Version:
Keywords: Cc:


For a fresh picture the program has never seen before, this sequence:

On the JOSM screen zoom to the are we are interested in.

Now choose "New picture layer from file."

seems to not always have consistent results.

E.g., sometimes:

So..... what happened to our nicely zoomed area?

There it still is, in a tiny spot in the middle of the new image.

But other times there is our new image, draped nicely over most of the screen.

It seems to depend on the zoom levels of the current layers, and the
size of the imported .jpg or something.

I think when importing an image: the user has already set up the
background to where he expects the image to be overlayed.
So then the incoming image should be overlayed upon 90% of the screen,
without affecting the current zoom etc.

(Apparently the program makes the assumption that we must be loading
satellite images many times the size of the area we had zoomed to before
loading the image.

How to deal with this?
A workaround is to zoom in many more times, before loading the image.)
