Crop ratio

    This is a user forum. If you wish to contact Capture One, use the submit a request link above.

    I know... I have given that reply here myself quite often ;)

    I did file a support request first. I then opened the thread here. To be honest, I was simply lazy and reused the text I submitted in the support request and should have rephrased it here. Actually, I'm curious if this new behaviour is an issue for others, too.

    Hi Markus,

    I totally agree with you! Different users - different needs. There should be an entry at the preferences, where anyone could makes his own default crop.

    This change in default behavior made my workflow way slower now, for the same reason. I often prepare couple of series for export where each of the series is with different crop ratio - now have to click for every single image to change it (i.e. 16:9, 1:1). Copying and pasting "crop" is a workaround, but still often slower then before.

    Bad move without giving us an option to change that in preferences.

    This change is a pain for me too. I want it set to unrestrained as I always crop for appearance. I hate this extra step.

  • Markus Stamm

    I received the following advice from Support:

    "You can batch-apply a ratio simply by selecting all the images you want to change, then changing the ratio once. "

    This does actually work and makes the change in behavior a bit less painful, though I still miss a way to set a default ratio to start with for all upcoming edits.

  • John Harper

    I received the same advice from Support, as has been said it's a pain.

    I told them they know nothing about my workflow.

    I agree this is a user forum. I trust Capture One monitors it, and can gain useful user feedback here.
    So it was certainly good to bring up this topic.

    The new behavior frustrates me too. The batch-cropping solution is a possibility indeed, but it can not fit every workflow and every situation. It does not fit mine either. The option in Preferences could solve this.
