Thanks

    If you use 4x3 or 3x4 crop, you dont have to worry about custom crop. The crop numbers have nothing to do with size or dimensions of the picture, they are ratios of height & width.

     

    What do you mean by save? there is no save in Aperture. Do you mean you exported the cropped picture and imported? There is no need to do that.

    You can crop many pictures at once with the Lift&Stamp tool. Do one picture  and lift adjustments. Unselect all adjustments and IPTC, then select only the crop adjustment. Then select all the pictures you want to crop and stamp them.

     

    But how do you know the first crop will work on all the other pictures. Ususlly crop removes parts of the picture that are unwanted, and each picture could be different.

    Thanks,  how do i have different crops in one project, I have realised that from a folder whatever adjustment i make seems to apply to to all albums, projects, smart folders stemming from that folder source, I need the same images but with different crops, how do I do that?

     

     

     

    Thanks

    I need the same images but with different crops, how do I do that?

    Crops are not bound to folders or albums; crops (and any adjustment) are applied to image versions. An image version will look the same in all albums, books, slideshows ..

     

    If you need the same image with different adjustments in different albums create a second version of the image to be included in the other album.

    so, I have created folders with adjustments including crops, I now want to make different crops but with the same adjustments, I'm stuck, seems everything is duplicated, do i have to start with new versions from masters and in which case complete all the adjustments again?

     

    Thanks

    No keep the adjustments you want and just redo the crop.

    yes, but what I've noticed is that yes the adjustments will stay the same, but if I make the crop different then its only the lates crop whcih will be saved as such, basically if want 20 of the same image 8x6 and then 20 of the same image 10x8, then the mostvrecent crop is the the one to be kept in all all of the folders i dare to make, it will not keep more than one crop, is thta correct?

    Duplicate the versions one version for each of the crops you want. Put the duplicates in there own Albums and then redo the crop on the duplicates.

     

    So basically in the Album you have now select all the images you want to do this to and duplicate the images. The dups are selected, now do a new album, include selected images, name the new album say 8x10.

     

    In the 8x10 album select one of the images crop it to the new crop. Select the lift and stamp tool stamp select the rest of the images and stamp.

     

    Harder to write then to do.
