Auto-crop whitespace from imported images?

Recommended Posts



It would be nice to have a way in Designer to automatically crop whitespace (or transparent/empty space) from the borders of imported images, rather than having to do so manually. Not a high priority I guess, but GIMP does this very well and I have found it a time saver there.


Keep up the good work!

I love AD, but find cropping and dealing with the canvas size terribly frustrating in it. For the most part, everything in AD is very fluid.... but to crop the canvas, I haven't been able to figure it out.


I believe the only way to do it is to open the Document Setup window and type numbers in boxes and repeat until you get the crop just right. If there is another way to do it besides using the Export Persona, I would love not to have to do all my cropping in PhotoShop and then import into AD just to size the canvas right. Is there a way to crop the canvas using a tool?


Trim functionality is definitely part of making cropping simple and easy. I would love to see this on the roadmap... it's not a differentiator, but it seems like a "table stakes" item.
