Snapping doesn't work proper

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

It's the first time I use Affinity Photo and I try to keep my cropping exactly inside the document borders, but despite the Snapping function activated it doesn't snap.

 

Procedure I used: Resize a document to 1200 px width and want to crop 627 px height (Facebook post image size).

The crop tool is covering the whole width of the document like supposed to and I move down with the crop, but can hardly stay in the proper position. 

 

What is the best setting for the Snapping in this case?

What do I do wrong?

 

Regards & Thanks,

David

Hi All Media Lab,

 

Unfortunately the Crop Tool doesn't adhere to snapping I'm afraid.

 

Thanks

You could ..

Create a new file 1200 px  X 627 px   (same resolution as the original image)

Then copy & paste the original image into the new file an use the Move Tool to resize and place the original to your needs

 


Affinity Photo  1.8.0.585   -  Beta 1.8.0.555

Are you sure? It seems to snap properly for me, at least to the edges of the document, when I enable snapping with AP 1.6.1.93 on Windows 10.

Bonsoir.

walt.farrell   a raison. le magnétisme (icone fer à cheval) permet l'accrochage du recadrage en douceur.

Mais on peut outrepasser. (A p 1 6 2 93 et 1 6 3 96).

DxO (par exemple) ne laisse pas d'outrepasser (recadrage se cale en bordure) mais affiche l'évolution en temps réel des dimensions (en pixels).

If you have an unconstrained crop, AP (1.6.1.93) also displays the realtime size as you modify the size of the crop.

AP 1.6.1.93 also displays real-time dimensions in pixels while cropping in unconstrained mode or absolute dimensions mode. I think it could be useful if it would do that in all cropping modes.
