embed a cropped and rotated photo in a document

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I have a photo from which I would like to use a cropped portion and rotate this part around a bit.

the result object still has all the rest of the photo and on top it is so much bigger due to the rotation.

How can I cut out an rotate and the result is only the rotated portion of the original which I can use as a background without the waste around it - and export it?

Thanks for help

Chris

You would need to rasterise the layer by right-clicking the layer and selecting Rasterise. Rasterising is a destructive process so it will remove anything not within the document bounds.

You should be able to export this image as is by using File > Export... and selecting Whole Document, Export will ignore anything not within the document bounds.

Hi firstdefence.

Thank you very much for the hint.

I just found the function "Flatten" under Document and it did what I was searching for.

I'm not sure whether this is the same as "Rasterise" but in the end both commands did the trick for me.

best

Flattening will give you a single layer, you can also do merge visible, this creates a similar layer but retains the donor layers.
