100% crop

Probably a stupid question, but how do YOU prepare a 100 % crop? I know there's a few different routes to achieve this, but which is the easiest?

Re: 100% crop

Glad it's not only me, I'm always a bit baffled when I see 50% or 80% crop.

Re: 100% crop

Re: 100% crop

I have done it before, but I can't for the life of me remember how.

Re: 100% crop

I think you view the original at 100% then select an area of approx 1024 x 768 and crop that is then the 100% crop of the image which can be compared to the original full size image.

Here is the full size






Here is the 100% crop

Re: 100% crop

The way I do it is in LR4.4.

The first thing to do is set the Loup info to show cropped dimensions (View Options and set one of the drop down boxes to cropped dimensions).

In the development view I go to crop overlay and if I want a 100% crop for say this forum 800 x 600 I resize the frame to that dimension.

Hopes this helps.

Re: 100% crop

They say that no questions are stupid. To the uninitiated everything is unknown.
However I'll try for a stupid answer, which probaby means neither of us know what we are talking about or that I have completely misunderstood your question (the more likely option).

I thought anything viewed at full resolution could be classed as a 100% crop. In html code you can set the viewing size of a picture, so if the viewed size is half the picture size then that is being viewed at 50%. On some sites you need to click on a picture to see it at full resolution.

I tend to post my pictures on this site at 800x600 pixels in size, so if I took my OOC jpeg (4608x3645 pixels), and drew a selection box that was 800x600 pixels in size in the crop tool then that would be a 100% crop (as this forum displays pictures at full size). If however I selected a crop selection box that was 1600x1200, cropped the picture, and then resized it to 800x600 then that would be a 50% crop - what you are seeing is a picture that is 50% in size of the picture from which it was resized and because I had cropped the picture it is now a 50% crop. Or yuu could just think of it as in a 100% crop you are seeing 100% of the pixels from the cropped image, in a 50% crop you are seeing only 50% of the pixels as half have to be thrown away in the resizing.

The alternative view of course is that if I cut my picture in half then that is a 50% crop. But in this view of the world a 100% crop would be the whole picture (i.e. all 100% of it).

Re: 100% crop

To be exact it is not a 100% crop but a crop of a image viewed at 100% which is in turn also means viewing a image at actual pixel size.

19.1% and 100%

Re: 100% crop

As Tom says, I use CS6 and zoom to 100% and crop from that size

Re: 100% crop

If I may claify my question, and thanks for the replies so far, i meant how can I post a 100% crop, ie, full-size, portion of an image. I think we're getting there!

If you do what deckitout says and save the selection unmodified. That will give you what I mean by "a 100% crop" which you can post here.

That's what I did here (to a random OOC jpeg) and if I set my browser zoom control to 100% it appears here in the forum at the same size and resolution as it does when I look at it in PSE at 100% (aka "actual pixels"):

Re: 100% crop

Step by step Stephen using Elements

Orig


1- Hit Z on the keyboard then click on the 1:1 button


2-Click on the rectangular marquee tool and select part of the image then go to Image and select crop.



3- Save the cropped image as a new file and you are done.



Hope that helps.

Thanks for this Paul, just what I wanted.You don't fancy putting it up as one of your tutorials so I can find it in the future?

Re: 100% crop

Very simply, crop the image and then save what's left without re-sizing

So.. for a 50% crop, you just save half of what's left
