Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Cropping, part of Enhancing a Portrait of a Young Woman in Lightroom.
To start by retouching work flow, I…selected this photo in the library module, and…then I pressed d on my keyboard to bring it here into the develop module.…Now, I often go right to the Basic panel in the develop module.…And start going through the color and tone sliders there.…But in this case before I do that, I want to crop the photo.…And that's because I want to change this rather informal cute pose into…a more formal one, and I think I can accomplish that by…cropping away the oversized sleeve of the leather jacket and the blue jeans here.…
So I'm going to click on the Crop Overlay…tool icon here in the tool bar under the histogram.…Or I could press the keyboard shortcut r on…my keyboard and that opens the Crop Overlay tool panel.…I'd like to keep the cropped photo in the same proportions as the original photo.…So I'll make sure that the lock is closed over here where it says original.…And then I'll come into the image, I'll move my cursor over…any of the edges of this default crop bounding box and I'll drag.…
