  • Aspect ratio and cropping.

    Whenever I try to use the 3:2 aspect ratio thing when I crop it makes cropping very difficult (limited range of motion with the mouse) Am I doing something wrong?

        Ahhh ...

        Thats beacuse PS has the overall control as like you said, the limited area such as the 3:2 crop. You control the size while PS controls the frame

            I assumed you were using grid but it would be one of the snap to commands.You need to have a picture opened to allow changes.

                Hmm I still can't figure this out (I feel like a douche lol). How does everyone else crop and not have all this trouble. I can't crop with this aspect ratio with out ps lopping off a part of the aircraft or something like that. I've never really seen cropping with the 3:2 aspect ratio explained in depth.

                  To crop to the 3:2 aspect ratio it is very simple.

                  When the crop tool is open, put the number 3 in the width box and the number 2 in the height box. This will lock your cropping box to the 3:2 aspect ratio. Now when you select your box you will only crop an area which adhere's to the 3:2 aspect ratio. Now you have to play with the box size to get it to include all parts of the aircraft using the corner tools to enlarge the entire box.

                  I hope that makes sense.

                      View > Snap. As is you'll see a checkmark next to snap, so just uncheck it and you'll have full motion with the mouse.
