We need to be able to resize and rotate individual layers
Okay, thank you for the info.

This is something that there is code for in the open source Paint.NET that we can use. They have a whole Rotate/Zoom/Pan layer dialog we should use.
Note that we already have some code for rotate in Layer.cs.
I *MAY* be working on this as part of my Google Summer of Code project, if time permits. If I don't post any more comments here by the end of August, you can assume that I did not have the time to implement this.
