Cropping Tricks Delete Pixel & Reveal Cropped Content in Photoshop

Hi there, this video, we're going to look at the weird and wonderful extras when we're looking at the crop tool, like all these different kinds of crop Ingrid's look at deleting pixels, how to get them back, how to straighten images so that you know that the horizon line is perfectly strength plus a few other tips. Let's jump in there now. Alright. To get started from your 05 cropping folder, open up crop one and crop to start with crop one. So kind of advanced cropping techniques, grab the crop tool for fun down and the first one is by default, it's probably on always show overlay, which in most cases is the rule of thirds. So if I click once anywhere in here and you get this kind of rule of thirds, which you might love, it just helps you balance compositions are not going to go through what the rule of thirds here is. It's worth going and checking if you've never heard about it. It's really useful when you are composing an image, deciding on where it actually falls within this grid c...

an help with symmetry and balance. I said I'm not going to explain it so I'll stop. So first thing I do is I turn it off, I don't use it. I just find it's kind of in the way so I never show overlay. Let's have a look at some of these other ones grid. Okay, I don't use them. But I thought I'd show you just because there are times with these people that like this sort of stuff and I just want to let you know that this is an option. Golden ratio is cool. Golden ratio spiral. I'm not sure why this would be here in a crop, you might see this and go, oh my goodness, I can't believe I've not known it's here. But for me I just go in and say never show overlay. What you can do though is if you do pick one you can hit the O key on your keyboard. So oh and just to kind of cycle through them all so you can kind of, I guess if you're cropping and you want to look like, what does it look like? A rule of thirds versus golden ratio. I don't mean to dismiss it, it's just something that I don't do. So I'm going to go to never show overlay. Next thing is just making sure you know that you can delete cropped pixels or not. So with it off, if I come down here and start cropping, I'm holding the shift key down to lock the aspect ratio. Okay, so that doesn't kind of do this. Okay, so hold shift just to make sure it's kind of cropping nicely and will still fit in the frame. So if I crop this here with delete pixels turned off, what happens up happening is if I click on it again, you can see that stuff is all still there around the background so it's very non destructive. I turn it on. Okay and I hit return. it's very different. Those pixels on the edges are gone forever, terrible crop down. So I'm gonna escape and I'm going to undo. So you probably knew about that because we kind of covered it earlier on. And what I want to show you though is let's say you do to a crop or you've opened up a photo shoot document and has already been cropped. Okay, so it's been cropped here that you can rotate the crop by just kind of dragging it outside here. It's a strange old thing using the crop tool in Photoshop, let's say we've got it, we've got that turned off okay, we know this stuff around here, but we just want to expand. So this is later on, we've cropped it, we've reopened it later on and we're like, I know there's stuff around here. So you're like what do you do? Like how do you get this to kind of expand back out. What you can do is you can go up to image and there's one that says reveal all so it's going to actually expand your canvas to match whatever is in the background and it's a great way. Just kind of like UNpick ng something Photoshop document to see actually what's what's in here because sometimes you can have like cropped bits that are all the way out here. Maybe big file size, there's just bits of the image that you want or need to see. So just remember image reveal all, let's look at the last bit of advanced cropping is the straighten. So I'm gonna go back to the crop tool and in here it looks pretty straight the horizon line. There's an option in here just to kind of double check. So I click on this and draw a line across the horizon. That's not a great line, but you get what I mean. So I've made sure it's, it feels quite nice and you can see it's about 0.3 degrees off so I click on that. Can you see it straightened it up for me? It's twisted the image a little bit. Okay, so it's turned on an angle if I hit return now I know the horizon line is kind of perfectly straight. Let's take that a little bit further with crop to okay, this one's off a lot more. It's quite obvious. So crop tool grab, straighten, click and drag across it. But what we're going to do is so if I do this, there we go, you can see at the top here there's all this extra gaps so I'm going to drag this out because let's say that I want it rotated, but I like, you know, return, it's kind of rotated around so but there are these gaps around here so what we can do is before we use straighten. Just turn on content aware. So like we did content aware fill in the essentials course well wrong too. I want to straighten make sure content wearers on watch this. If I drag this around and I expand it out now and I hit return, give it a second and it should fill in all the holes. Pretty cool. Huh? There's a little bit of trouble with the tree there. But to be honest, I'm not sure who would notice it was your photograph. You might john Tyson might be not as impressed. So if you are using straight and just turn content to wear on and it just goes and fills it. You can do it another way. Say you have done this and you didn't turn this on all this. You've got a slightly earlier version and it doesn't, it's not available. So I want to straighten it up. Okay So I'm just gonna straighten the horizon line deleted pixels is turned off so I'm gonna hit return. So I know there's some stuff around the outside, right? So remember our trick layer and it was revealed. All it is not, it's under image revealed. All come on down and what I can do is grab say my magic wand tool, click that one, hold shift, grab that chunk, grab that chunk So I'm grabbing all these little triangles that are left to select and let's go to modify and let's go to expand that selection because at the moment if we do it, I'll show you it just goes edit fill and it works. Content aware fill. But if I de select, there's like this little kind of strip around the outside so I just need to make that selection just a tiny bit bigger. Select modify expand you can contract in there as well. It's cool and let's expand it by a couple of pixels, maybe three doesn't matter too much just so it's overlapping. May do the same thing. Edit fill, content aware and hopefully now magic. It fills in those edges. Average job up here, but a pretty good job in the other corners. Alright, so that's it with the crop tool. We're going to do some other cropping somehow. We're going to make it into like another three videos of cropping. They're all interesting tricks. Let's jump into the next one now.

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
