The unit is set to "mm" in the Crop tool but I want to crop in pixels. How do I change the measurement metric?
The crop unit is inherited from the selected (highlighted) process recipe in the Export Recipes tool located in the Export tool tab.
Export recipes have the Scale field in the Format and Size tool. When you set the Scale field to Fixed, you will be able to select the unit in the Size field of the Crop tool.
In case you select any other option from the drop-down menu in the Scale field and set the measurement metric to in/mm/cm/px, the size unit in the Crop tool will inherit it. Thus, it will not be possible to change that.
In the export recipes with no Scale option, you will be able to set the desired unit in the Crop tool.
The information about the output image will be reflected in the Export Summary tool.
Hi, When I use the crop tool and scale the actual image the displayed dimension do not change, plus i am unable to change the setting from mm to inches
Ahum... going to "export screen", which should be the last step of your process, in order to change the ... ratio of the photo you are working on is ... less than obvious and straightforward, no ? Not to mention that you can easily forget which output recipes you choosed, as this info is now (C1 v22) NOT a tool, thus it not possible to have it in the tool tab
Why not puting this info somewhere more accessible ?
The process is this one :
- you are working on a photo.
- your printer say "there is a 5mm margin"
- I put the desired output size in mm somewhere in a floating tool
- I fetch the crop tool, put it in mm, and see what 5mm margin will crop
