Perspective Crop

The Perspective Crop tool combines two operations into one – correcting perspective and cropping. The tool can be used to fix perspective distortions, which can occur when taking pictures of wide or tall objects with a camera at an angle to the subject.

The rectangular crop area is created by dragging the cursor with the left mouse button pressed.

When clicking the image while holding down the Ctrl key (with the tool selected), the crop frame will cover the entire image area.

If there is an active selection on the image, then the crop frame will cover the selection area.

Tool settings are displayed in the Tool Options panel above the Image Window.

In the Trim section, specify the method for creating the crop area:

External Area. The check-box helps to facilitate visualization of the crop frame. If the check-box is enabled, the outer parts are highlighted in a selected color.

Show Grid. When the checkbox is active, a grid is displayed above the crop area, which helps when adjusting the crop frame.

 

To complete the perspective cropping, click ОК or press the Enter key. After that, the crop area will convert to a rectangular shape, and everything outside the frame will be deleted.
