Learn about how to nondestructively crop an image.
- [Instructor] So again, we're going to pretend here…that we've had another request from the client…and what they want to do is actually crop this in slightly…and change the size of the image that they're going to use.…And we're going to do it non-destructively,…so that we keep the data because here's the thing,…clients sometimes like to change their mind back.…And so we need to give ourselves a route back,…and that's the whole thing with non-destructive editing…full stop really, is saving you doing that.…One of the reason I learnt so many things…inside of the design tools in Photoshop…is that I wanted to be prepared for when customers came back…to me with changes, so that I could…deal with them as quickly as possible.…
