Reveal not working in Windows crop?

Recommended Posts

The new Darken/Reveal option on the Crop tool does not seem to work in Windows; or I have not understood it. There is no tutorial that I have found that explains the new functionality which appears to be very useful.

Click Darken. Drag the crop inwards. Area of image outside crop area is a bit darker, helping to highlight the area you will be keeping.

I can't find what Reveal does. I had thought it might, when expanding the crop area, reveal previously cropped areas, but no joy here.

According to the Help:

  • Reveal—when checked, displays areas of the document outside of the current crop. Useful if you have already cropped the canvas and need to expand it again

The problem seems to be that reveal does in work in Windows

Presumably 'does not work'? I get what it should do but it's not happening for me on Windows.

It's working in the 1.7 beta but not the currently released product


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

I am quite a noob at AP so I am quite proud that I think I can recover my cropped picture. Although Darken/Reveal does not appear in the context menu I decided to fiddle around (I think it's call investigative exploration). After cropping and saving a photo I dragged the edges of the image out producing a blank grey edge extending from it.  I selected apply and lo and behold the original image was re-cropped to a new image.

Hope this helps.
