real time rotate/scale
Hi
Is there a plugin that allows real-time rotate/scale of a selection (like in photoshop) ?
The way it works stock is the only annoying thing in gimp that makes my work unnecessarily harder.
Thanks for any help

Yes, its built-in to gimp & has additional features as of the new gimp 2.8.6

Rotate its called the rotate tool more info on how to use it/settings below:
(after it loads, scroll down to "Figure 14.120. Rotation tool options" )

RE: real time rotate/scale
Im sorry - I've decribed the problem in a wrong way...
When you rotate or scale a selection - changes should be applied in real time to the visible layer (without seeing how it looked before),
I don't know how to... let me just explain this with an image

Or maybe in other words - when I rotate or scale a selection I should see it like if it was cut out and then pasted again.
