Hi,

Regarding the annoying thick middle handle and corners on the crop tool of the 2020 update.

Is there any method to reduce size of those handles ? 

*. Updated method is nice than classic method. wondering about thick handles. 

 

Looking for favourable solution. 

Thank you

Hello, Photoshop 22; that has just been released today, does have fix the large crop handles as seen in its fixed issues list https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/fixed-issues.html#photoshop-desktop-fixed-issues 

I recommend to install it while keeping the older version installed, as explained in: https://helpx.adobe.com/be_en/download-install/using/install-previous-version.html

 

If you are not seeing it, go to help>check for updates in your CC application.

 

I think it is better than to use the classic mode.

Only option is to use the classic crop mode, which you can set by clicking on the gear icon.

I too prefer the newer crop tool as opposed the classic one but I would prefer not to have such thick handles. I find they really get in the way with precise crops where I want to be able to see outside the crop box as a reference point.

If the problem is that it’s hard to see what’s under the thick handle you’re dragging, it’s also possible to drag any of the thin crop rectangle edges on its own, away from any handle.

I seem to be at odds with everyone else here, I liked the larger handles and liked them on the outside of the area, is there any way to get them back?
