Cropping is defined as the conscious choice to remove parts of a photo. With Photomatix, the program might automatically crop your image when it aligns your bracketed photos, but there is a way to manually crop your final image to get the look you want. In this movie, author Richard Harrington demonstrates how to crop the final image.
- Cropping is the conscious choice…to remove parts of a photo.…Now Photomatix might automatically crop…as it aligns your racketed photos.…But after the fact, you might decide…that there's parts of a scene that you don't want.…Or that you want to get a specific sized output…or aspect ratio.…With the image open, select the crop tool,…and you'll see that you can specify the aspect ratio.…A free crop will let you decide what crop shape you use,…but I suggest going to something here…like three by two to begin.…
Let's make this a little bigger.…And I'll view this at the default size.…Now as I click and drag,…you see we've got the three by two aspect ratio.…And I can reposition that.…If I select the original aspect ratio,…it's going to match that to the photo,…but allows me to punch in a little bit…if I wanted to lose some of the edges.…For example, maybe I don't want…quite as much of that pillar.…
And that allows me to compensate.…Now you can decide to choose…from different aspect ratios here for shapes.…16 by nine for delivery to a presentation or a television,…
