Nice work so far! Thank you for sharing and taking the time to develop. Would it be possible to add rotation control to uploaded photos?
Cheers for the feedback! Was the rotation you need for the trypotsonline or the bonsaidesigner?

Yep, you can click the upload button (circled in red) then choose from the menu (circled in green) to either take a photo then and there or select files for ones you have already taken.

Ahh yes, i've had a bit of a more in-depth play with it and found both the different foliage types and the pot scale/position features - being a Millennial I was expecting to be able to drag the pot to position but it works fine with the X/Y axis! It really is a great concept and i love it!

I think a great feature would be the ability to use an 'eraser' to a) remove branches, as mentioned previously, and b) to remove the visible bits of the old pot when trying a new pot. Sounds easy, right?, but I bet it's not, as you'd have to factor in generating/blending in a matching background - something i know nothing about!
At this stage I would be looking at view different brands of Bonsai toolset ( sort of like a dictionary for the bonsai user )
Questions get all the time ( if you could show different sets etc )

also could you add Brazilian Raintree (probably should do this one first )

V1.2 of BonsaiDesigner is out! I have added more species foliage and the ability to draw with any color. This means you can paint out backgrounds and sketch non-foliage plans like cuts or branches.

Here is the link again: https://thebonsaiproject.com/bonsaidesigner/

Stay tuned, there will be a new tool released at the end of the month!

I've been watching this thread, but haven't actually tried it out for fear that it will distract me from more responsible activities.
I could spend a few hours just trying to figure out ONE tree I have.

This sounds oddly like when I tell my partner I'm not buying another tree I'm just going to "look" haha

I appreciate you trying it out, let me know what you find doesn't work well or if you have any ideas.

Got something a little bit whacky!

What is it? I dunno, yet. This was a step in a road towards looking at adding branches in Bonsai Designer or being able to map you tree and generate possible design ideas (trunk movement, branch placement, etc).

Either way I found this strangely satisfying. Let me know if you do too! I will be adding stuff, so the tree's turn out more bonsai-like and the ability to adjust more parameters.
