Canvas resize bug (Photo)

Recommended Posts

I tried to resize my Canvas from 1575x1080 to 1920x1080.

 

I selected the centre anchor point.

The resized image is not proportionately resized.

There is noticeably more new space on the right than on the left.

 

Check the screenshots.

 

Second bug I find in 5 minutes, in the production edition of AP.

This is not good.

This might help (someone else) understand what is going on.

 

As you can see, I am in the beginning of my editing history.

What is this rectangle that goes out of my image boundary?

And where did it come from?

I think this behaviour boils down to an issue with the crop tool.

 

As a first step, I cropped to specific dimensions. After cropping I see this box around the image, which I cannot understand (for instance, it does not match the original image dimensions).

That box looks to me as though it exactly matches the original image dimensions. :huh:

You are probably right, I did not take the left part into account.

However, does this explain the canvas resize behaviour?

Hi Nikos,

 

Yes - it's all part of the same thing.. the crop tool is not destructive (it leaves the spare pixels).

 

Usually, if I want the crop to be destructive, I do the crop, then do Layer -> Rasterise.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Andy.

 

I think this is not very intuitive. 

Perhaps the most confusing part is that if you try to "recover" some of the cropped pixels, these are only visible AFTER applying the crop.

This made me think it was probably something else involved.

 

It puzzled me, after having shot this many RAW photos:

$ find . -iname "*.CR2" -or -iname "*.ARW"  |  wc -l
