Center the Crop Region - Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

I have defined a Crop Preset (in pixels) that is smaller than the canvas I'm working on.

When I select my Crop Preset, the crop region aligns to the left side of my canvas.  I would expect it to self-align to the center of my canvas, both horizontally & vertically.

This may seem like a minor request.  But I have a workflow that requires a crop precisely aligned to the center of the image.  I don't see a way to precisely center the crop, so I end up moving it and judging by eye where the center is.

Thanks for your consideration.  Love Affinity Photo!

maybe this could help to center the crop.

ad a centerd horizontal and vertical guide, and set the crop overlay to diagonals.

not perfect, but might help.

Thank you. That does help and it's better than guessing where center is.  In the interest of saving steps, I hope Affinity decides to default a Crop Preset to the canvas center.
