Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Cropping, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] Cropping is the way to remove content…at the edges of a photo.…It's often seen as a way to improve the composition…or design of a photo.…But it's also useful if your finger slips…in front of the lens, or if someone walks into…the edge of your photo by mistake,…or if you need a photo to be in a certain shape,…maybe to fit inside of a frame when you print it out.…If you're following along, select this photo…from the filmstrip or from one of the grid views.…There's a lot of empty space of this photo.…It was the sunset that got my attention when I shot this,…and I guess I didn't realize how much beach I had.…
So I'd like to crop some of that away.…To do that I'll go to the column on the far right…and I'll select the second tool,…which is the crop and rotate tool.…When I click that, I get a few controls in the next column,…and a boundary appears around the edge of the photo.…I can click and drag on any edge,…and that makes the boundary smaller.…And then I can move the photo inside that boundary…to where I want it by clicking, holding and dragging.…
