Adjusting and snapping of cropping frames

3 posts in this topic

Why is not possible to adjust a cropping frame in Transform Studio?

Why does a cropping frame not snap to layer borders?

 

Would really appreciate if you could make that happen. Also (already stated in an earlier post): Please consider an option to convert a rectangular selection into a cropping frame.

Hi Taluyaq

 

If you wish to set a specific size from the crop you can change the mode to absolute dimensions and input the size you wish from the toolbar at the bottom. The crop area will snap to the document boundaries if snapping is enabled, however as it id a document wide operation and not a layer specific on it does not snap to specific objects. I shall pass your suggestion on for consideration

 

Cheers

Thanks for getting back to me on that topic. I am aware of the possibility of making manual adjustments to the cropping frame respectively to set it to a custom size. The problem here is that I not always know the size I need because there is no (at least no easy) way to determine the dimensions of specific layers, especially when they are partially obscured. Of course I can always zoom in, so snapping would just be a handy shortcut.
