Xara :: Crop And Straighten With The Fill Tool?

Dec 19, 2012

You can easily fix crooked photos, zoom and crop with the fill tool.

The first step is to make sure you have the rulers enabled (window>bars>rulers) then click and drag a horizontal guideline from the ruler.

Select your photo and select the fill tool, you will see that your photo is actually a vector shape with a bitmap fill. Click and drag the outer fill handles to enlarge (zoom) the bitmap within the shape and rotate as needed to straighten the image. Move the cursor over the line of the fil handles until it changes to a hand then click and drag the photo around to adjust it's position within the shape.

Photoshop :: Why Does Straighten Tool Straighten But Not Automatically Crop

Apr 2, 2012

if I use the Straighten tool (first the ruler to mark out a horizon line, then click the Straighten Layer button), Photoshop used to straighten the picture, and then automatically crop it so that none of the extra canvas shows.
When I do that now, it just straightens it, and leaves me to manually crop the picture.

Lightroom :: Can Get Crop And Straighten Tool To Default To 16 : 9

Jun 29, 2012

I have a large number of RAW photos from a Canon 7D which are destined for use in a Premiere Pro CS6 project.

I want to crop each of them to the preset 16x9 1920 x 1080.

What I would like to happen is that when I open the photo in the develop module and press the R button to open the Crop and Straighten tool, that the Aspect 16X9 crop overlay is selected be default, rather then the "original".

This would save me a lot of mouse clicks...

Or perhaps it's possible to assign a keyboard shortcut to that particular aspect so I can press R and then something else?

Photoshop :: Using Crop Tool To Straighten Crooked Image

Sep 5, 2013

In CS6 I have an image that was scanned in and is crooked. I use the Crop tool to drag the crop marks around the portion of the image I want to keep and I press the Check mark to do the crop.

It crops the image though it does not straighten it out. In previous versions of Photoshop it use to crop and straighten the image by cropping it. How do you now use the Crop tool to straighten an image?

Photoshop :: Crop And Straighten Automation

Feb 14, 2006

I am running Photoshop CS. I have many hundred documents to scan and was going to use the pre loaded "Crop and Straighten" tool under file/automate. My problem is I want to run this over a folder that will save and close, not just one image at a time.

I also want it to do an automatic save using the current file name without adding the word "copy" to it, and not have to type over the file name each time when the save option comes up with "Filename copy.tiff".

I know the Crop and straighten tool is great for putting several images on a scanner and it separating them into individual images, but this is not what I am doing, I have one scan, one document.

So is it possible to run this over a folder of 500+ documents and walk away from it, have all images save and close using the current name, and not fill the desktop up with many opened images that need to be manually closed?

Photoshop :: Crop And Straighten Automatic Script

Jun 13, 2012

I have a couple of photos of the sun (700 to be exact) that I'm trying to crop. Doing it manually on each one would be very tedious and so I found the automatic script of Crop & Straighten.
However, even though it does a good crop when I batch process all my snaps using an action with the crop & straighten within it, the photos are also straightened or rotated in this case. Is there any way to avoid the straightening part to work on the images and just use the tool to crop the images automatically ?

Lightroom :: Zoomed View When Crop / Straighten?

Jan 19, 2013

I'm new to Lightoom but learning quickly. One thing that has given me a problem is in develop module when I wish to straighten and crop, but need to do this zoomed in on the image. Can't judge the straightening otherwise. When I try this as soon as hit the straighten tool the image goes to fit to screen and I can no longer judge my straightening.

Xara :: Rectangle Tool Includes Linear Fill?

Jul 16, 2013

I`m still using Xara X1... and am having two issues with the rectangular tool.

First, the rectangle draws on an angle, almost more like a diamond. I would like it to draw parallel to a horizon.

Second, the rectangle draw includes a linear fill. I would like to lose that parameter so that the rectangle can be a simple solid color that I can choose for myself.

Photoshop :: Crop Tool Prior To CS6 Vs Perspective Crop Tool

Feb 26, 2013

In the old days, one could just use the crop tool and, while drawing crop lines, check the perspective box if you found that you needed to change the perspective. With CS6 if you start with the crop tool, and find you want to change the perspective, you have to change tools to the new perspective crop tool. In the process, you have to tell the newly opened dialog box that you don't want to crop, to get to the perspective tool, which now has reset to its defaults. You've lost your cropping and you have to start over.

Photoshop Elements :: Why Does Straighten Tool In 11 Freeze When Try To Use It

Oct 25, 2012

When I click on the straighten tool and then click on a horizontal line on my photo, as I attempt to draw the line across the photo it freezes after a fraction of an inch and rotates the photo before I've drawn the line along the horizontal feature I'm using and it's always wrong. I had this problem with my downloaded trial version of Elements 11 and it appears on the version I purchased in the store today.

Photoshop :: Preset Crop Tool Not Matching Image Size After Crop

Jul 1, 2013

I am a labtech at a community college and look after 48 mac pros in which the students use the entire creative suite. (I only mention this becuase any answers need to consider variations in system settings or photoshop settings. college students get into everything!)
But the issue is when you select the crop tool and enter a custom constraint and crop
The image size is sometimes a full 2 inches off of what you set as a crop?! I havn't run into this before

[I do know you can use the drop down box and use {size and resolution} but I want to know why it doesnt work under custom and unconstrained]

GIMP :: Missing Crop Tool Which Can Rotate Crop Rectangle?

Aug 4, 2012

I am missing a crop tool which can rotate the crop rectangle. Similar to photoshop's tool. I found no way to rotate the crop rectangle in gimp. How do you cut out something from an image if it needs to be rotated while cropping? I tried rotating first then cropping but it does not give me enough precision so I end up with transparent areas at the border.

Photoshop :: Crop Tool Won't Let Me Crop

Oct 25, 2004

I am having a problem with the crop tool. It will not crop the area I want; it goes to a point and stops. It's as if it has a mind of it's own and I can't direct it. I thought it might be the mouse so I took it apart and cleaned it, and then I put a different mouse in. It still does the same thing.
