Thread: How can i combine two functions into one, like macros or actions

    Question How can i combine two functions into one, like macros or actions

    I'm cropping around 500 document images. the images are not scanned correctly and has black borders around.

    What i'm doing is i select the area want to crop and press ctrl-y to crop it then press ctrl-s to save. So what i want is to create a custom hotkey (lets say w) which will do both of this process for me at the same time. I think it will boost my productivity.

    Instead of Ctrl+Y (Crop), use Ctrl+Shift+B (Save selection as)

    Than it will open a dialog box for save as. In my method it just overwrites the original file. And I'm enabled some options in settings.

    If your scans are properly aligned (vertical & horzontal) and the borders aren't too spotty, you could try auto crop in batch processing:
