Thread: Cropping Pics
May 6th, 2005, 07:00 PM #1
I have altered a couple of pics lately.. mostly cropping and messing with brightness in photoshop. When i pull the pics up afterwards I notice that the faces in particular are out of shape. I is a small change but it is noticeble. Is there any way to avoid this?

Cropping should not do that.
Changing the resolution and not maintaining the aspect ratio will.
Have you tried viewing them with a different program?

When you're done messing with the pic in PS, click File--save for web. That will give you a preview of what your saved file will look like, size and all. Are you scaling the images at all or just drawing rectangles around areas and selecting image--crop?
Can you post up a screenshot or two for us to see exactly what you're talking about?

Did you use the Crop Tool to crop your photos? Don't do that. Use the Marqee to draw a rectangle around the area you want to crop then like Martoch said, goto IMAGE / CROP.

I think i used the crop instead fo the marquee. i am using photoshop 7.0
what is the difference between the two?

Here's my rookie take on it...I believe that using the crop tool resamples the image, because at the top of the page you have to specify the crop details. The marquee simply crops the selected area while keeping the original quality.
OuT, am I close?
