In the last movie, we have looked at how he could mask or composite these different…frames together in this image sequence.…In this movie we're going to apply a few finishing touches and we're going to…start off by cropping and recomposing, which is really important when you create…these sequences, because you've really changed the overall balance, or mood, or…feeling of your photographs when you start to add multiple frames together.…So here let's press the C key in order to select the Crop tool.…In the Options bar let's choose Unconstrained, then also make sure you turn off…this option Delete Cropped Pixels.…
By turning that off, you can always undo however you have cropped your image.…Next, here we'll go ahead and click and drag in these sides of our photograph,…and then what I want to do is I want to make a crop as you can see here which is…a little bit more like a square, and then I want to rotate this.…So I'm going to hover over the corner point.…I'm just going to click and drag to start to rotate this.…
