I process a jpeg in Photo and crop it to square, then save as an afphoto file.

I open this 'square' afphoto file.
On selection , a rectangular boundary shows  the original boundary with the square image within it.

On selecting the crop tool the specified image and crop dimensions are both square as I wanted.

If I feed this image into a Forge plugin, it sees the original dimensions and messes up processing of distortions and tiling.

Hi @gw_westdale,
Sorry for the delay getting back to you. We have been a bit busy with all the feedback/reports we are getting from latest 1.9 and 1.9.1 releases.
Right-click the layer in the Layers panel and select Rasterise & Trim to get rid of the hidden/cropped data. You can then process it as usual in the Filter Forge plugin.

Thanks for response - that is useful.

Independently of the use of FilterForge, I think what you are saying is that Crop does not fully crop the file -  and the file saved after cropping would still contain the full image.
So, in order to save filespace if one uses large background bitmaps, Crop is not enough and one should Rasterise and trim each of any large bitmap layers as well?
That appears to be the case from a quick trial I did.
I would suggest that it would be better for Crop to do a trim as well in some future version.

Personally I prefer cropping to be non-destructive, so that's it's possible to change the crop later if you wish. It really isn't that much effort to rasterize and trim. (You can set up a keyboard shortcut if you want to.) Maybe it could be an option, but I really would not like all cropping to be destructive.
