Cropping images



  • FirstName LastName

    Bonjour, pourquoi l'option pour changer les mm en px est totalement bloquée et figée dans l'outil recadrage ?

    There is no way to change the crop default value from 'Original' to 'unconstrained' . It is inconvenient to have to press the Crop button every time.

    The letter 'C' used to invoke the crop tool, as 'R' used to invoke the Rotate tool. The letter 'C' works on my MacBook Pro but not in the iMac install. Is there a way to set this up? I looked at Keyboard shortcuts and it shows letter 'C' is set for Crop.

    This storing of the crop ration on per-variant basis is very inconvenient for me, as it defaults to the original crop, which I seldom use. I mostly use a custom crop. In previous versions of CaptureOne it was not a problem, but now it is. For every image I want to custom crop I have to change the crop ratio. It is more clicking around as before, very annoying!

    I would appreciate a lot if you could make a switch in the settings to return the previous logic.

    I second that WJ, instead of just clicking 'C', I now have to enter the crop tool to select 'unconstrained' for every image, this is a real bummer, slows down my edits a lot, just an unnecessary pain !    Why not have this in the preferences, alongside far less important features like crop's rectangle opacity and brightness ? And so simple to implement.

    But there is more: you select 'unconstraned', you crop your image to your taste, then if you click outside your crop rectangle, the ratio selected automatically goes back to 'Original' + your crop simply disappears and you're back to the full image !  

    A basic feature that worked so well before this release....

    N.B. As of Capture One 22 (15.3) your Aspect Ratio will be remembered on a per-variant basis. It is no longer a 'global' setting.

    How do I do the facepalm emoji in this chat box?

    What a spectacular blunder by Capture One here!

    If I set the crop to "unconstrained" its because I want to choose my own crop, which is the case in almost every photo I edit. It is *extremely* frustrating to have to reset this for every single image. Please go back to how it used to be where once I set it as unconstrained it stays that way until I choose otherwise. I can't believe there isn't even a way to set this in the so-called "Preferences". 

    Come on capture One, this is getting exceedingly tiresome now. Not just this particular crop problem, but the fact that every time you issue a new release, you change a feature that worked perfectly well before to something that is far more of a pain in the ass to use and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    My advice is: don't just change stuff for the sake of it, just to pad out the number of changes for each release. Only make changes that actually improve the user experience. And if you do make a change, at least make it easy for the user to change a setting to go back to the previous behaviour.
