Thread: Very specific Cropping of images

  1. #1

    Default Very specific Cropping of images

    There must be an easy procedure for this but I cannot find it:
    When cropping my images, I like to set them to be 1800x1200 pixels (or the reverse) at 300 res for printing. Also, I want to control the exact position and size of the cropping box while maintaining this 3:2 ratio. How do I do this? And can I create a saved Preset for this action, so I don't have to keep entering the values with each image? Thanks.

    Use "Edit / Create custom crop selection".
    Aspect ratio: 3:2
    Enter the offset, usually 0 / 0
    Enter width: 1800, height: 1200
    DPI: 300
    Click OK

    Use the right mouse button inside the selection to move it. If you press the CTRL-key and resize the selection, the ratio will be kept.

    And yes, you can reuse this settings. And a shortcut to open this box is SHIFT-c.

    Terrific! I didn't know about the CTRL-key. Now, is there an easy way to go back and forth between 1800x1200 and 1200x1800? If not, I will have to crop all my horizontal images first, then crop all my vertical ones. Thanks!

    No, there is now easy way (or I don't know it).
    But what about rotating the images using the R and L keys?
    R, SHIFT-C, Enter, move, L, Save...

    Yes, I could rotate, but that's another step. Might as well do all horiz then all vert. Also, by keeping the vert ones in their correct orientation, I will be able to see them better for deciding where to crop. Thanks so much!

    Hi Cranberry, you can add your ideas/views to this thread: Feature Request: custom selection - reverse ratio

    If enough people find this useful, maybe Irfan will implement it
