Good morning,

It looks to me (maybe I'm wrong) that is not possible to set some default settings to the crop tool. I'd like for example to have it always set on "Original Ratio" and with the "Darken Border" always checked, in order to speed up a basic process like cropping a bunch of catalog photos. I've found this intuitive option in every processing software I've used so far but can't figure it out here. 

Any ideas? If such a thing doesn't exist for AP it would be awesome to have it ASAP since it'll speed up the workflow, especially when working on several images.

Thanks

Hi Massi,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
In Affinity Photo Customer Beta, the crop tool settings (Darken, Reveal etc) are now sticky (except the Mode which is always set to Unconstrained) - at least on Mac - not sure if the changes were already ported to the latest Photo Beta for Windows as well. With that and the use of presets you should be able to speed up your workflow as you want.

Hi MEB,

thanks for the support. I'm using AP on Mac retina for almost a year now, my learning curve for this software is kinda intuitive since I'm coming from 10+ys of PS. Not too keen on using Beta on real productions, also I'm not familiar with these versions of AP so I guess I'll wait for the official update to be released. I'm really happy with the software but sometimes I just surprised to find some clumsy details on tools that should be user friendly by default.

Thanks
