Hi,

    I'm hoping somebody with more experience than I will be able to suggest how I solve a problem I have. 

I am cropping photos for a 6 x 4 photo frame and I want the person in the photo to be a certain size (13.1cm) so it shows nicely in the frame (I have 200 of these to do - and want them all to be the same). I've played around with rulers and grids but its still a hit or miss. I'd ber extremely grateful if one of the experts on here could suggest a process to do this please.

Many thanks

Chris

Use the rectangular selection tool set at a fixed size (6 X4)  and move the selection until you like the framing.

Then Image > Crop.

Another solution:

- Create a new empty file of the final size,  resolution and file format. It will be your 'canvas' - you can save it for further use.

- In Expert mode, show the canvas in the editing space

- Use the file > Duplicate command and save it with with the name of your first photo to fit in.

- Drag the photo from the photo bin to the canvas copy in the editing space

- use the move tool to resize the photo over the canvas to the size and position you prefer

- flatten, save and close the copy. If you did not save and rename the canvas copy in the second step, 'Save as' now before closing.

 

Note: the 'duplicate' command creates a duplicate in memory, not yet on your disk. You have the option to create a duplicate from a flattend layered source image.

 

- Save that duplicate with a new name and close it

 

The original canvas is still open to be duplicated for each other photo you have to process.

Thank ypu both for your useful replies, very useful. I have been using Rectangular tool / Crop in a 6x4 ratio but it is a guess and I have to repeat the process several times until I get the person/object to be the right size. Is it possible to say, put two points on the top and boottom of the object and set that to 13.1cm and then crop ? That way I'd know thew object is the right size, or am I completely misunderstanding this?

Thanks again 

Chris
