Is there a way in iPhoto 11 to enter crop values other than whole numbers? Such as 8.5 or some other decimal value for specific print needs. Previously I could always use 8.5 to utilize for standard letter size prints, but now whenever I enter decimal values, it just reverts to a whole number. Frustrating and irksome.

    Just use whole numbers - you are not cropping to a szie but a ratio do for 8 1/2 x 11 crop to 85x110

    Afraid not.


    iPhoto menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback for feature requests.

    I tried this, but doesn't work well when I try to print. I'm trying to create a strip image 1.38" X 8.5". Previously I could enter those very values and that is what I would get. Not quite sure what prompted the removal of that function. I used the same idea a number of times to get specific sized images that I would print and then trim to size just by using the edge of the image.

    So crop to 138 x 850 - then print with a custom size of 1.38" x 8.5"


    Whole numbers have been the rule for cropping as long as I remember
