Cropping in Photoshop Lightroom
Adobe Systems has graciously provided some Lynda.com clips for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. These particular clips feature host Chris Orwig. In this movie, host Chris Orwig discusses cropping in Photoshop Lightroom. He starts by creating a custom 4x5 ratio image to show that you can crop using custom settings.
He shows how to lock down the crop or modify it to constrain the proportions. He shows how to apply the crop to another image using the keyboard commands and goes into the file to determine how to crop his image.
He details how to rotate an image to create a more interesting and dynamic photo, and recommends experimenting with cropping to see different looks of the same image.
