Affinity Photo: How do i pause a cropping macro to allow setting of crop area?

Recommended Posts

Each week I have to crop 200 photos to 1:1 size. These are a mix of portrait and landscape. The focal point is not in the same position in each image. So, I need to be able to change the crop area for each photo.

To open, crop, save for each photo is slow and tedious.

I'd much rather use batch that has a macro that automatically opens each photo, opens the cropping dialog, waits for me to set the crop area, then saves the photo.

Is this possible with Affinity Photo? (Is it possible in Photoshop?_

Thanks, Carl. I suspected as much but was hopeful.  Any suggestions of software that does support that?

Hi there, I'm looking for pretty much exactly the same, Open, set crop ratio, pause, let me crop, then export. What I can say is that this is very easily achieved in Photoshop actions.

It's a shame as I've ditched Photoshop for this app which does everything I ever need, just not the cropping of batch images.

It would be useful for me to be able to at least set some default Crop ratio's... I'm not sure if that can be achieved?
