Re: [photoshop-beginners] cropping

I made a vid of a procedure to do this but I did it for one picture only.  As mentioned below, make your canvas size bigger if necessary to accommodate both pictures.  (image/canvas size)

I must be asleep, I did not notice what the issue really is. No matter how you crop and image, it will always be rectangular in shape, always. To do what you want is easy. First, duplicate the background and turn it off, that way it will be easy to start over.  Perform your crop just as you want it. Select the magic wand tool, and click the white areas Type "shift-ctrl-I", this will invert the selection. Type "ctrl-j", this will extract the image you want where the white area is now transparent. Now you can abut it to your target image without the white space getting in the  way.  The one thing to remember, expand the canvas of your target image, otherwise you modified image will lie outside of the image area.

Yes I guess that sounds correct. That would make it 5 sided.  As I said following the above instructions I ended up with a photo that had the corner cut off as to content but the part I cut off became white and is now part of the photo.. Not what I need. I want to butt two photo corners together on the corner where I want to remove  is  Sorry if not clear but I think your 5 sided may describe it best.

I may be missing something but I am not sure I’m following what you want to do.  You want to crop as a photographic frame as a 5 sided polygon by leaving all the other portions and just adding an additional side?

Thank you for your help. I am using CS2.

I can do what you said and cut off the corner by rotating the image, but I then need to extend the crop box out to make sure I have the rest of the photo. Then I crop it. The photo then appears to include all the white areas outside the photo. I then rotated it back to horizontal and it is fine, the corner is gone BUT the corner is now white and again part of the photo. What am I missing here  <G>

Thanks, Steve

It is fairly simple, depending on which version of Photoshop you have.  If you have CS6 or CS CC, select your crop tool. When the crop grid appears, move your cursor outside of the grid, and it will change into an arc with arrows at each end.  When these are visible, can rotate your image to the angle you want to crop at.  When the cursor is inside the grid, it is an arrow, this will allow you to slide your image around to get the crop right. So, to get the crop you want, you slide and rotate your image.


The crop system in PS6 and CC is new, I am not sure which version of PS it started in. As I said, in CS6 and CC you slide and rotate the image behind the grid to get what you want. In older versions, you the image remains fixed and you slide and rotate the grid to get the crop you  want. Adobe found that most photographers preferred to move the image around and leave the grid fixed. They made this change in CS6, Or 5, or 4.


Remember, cursor outside the grid to rotate image or grid, cursor inside grid to slide image or grid.

How do you crop just a corner of a photo on an angle ?   All I can find is to crop in rectangles, must be a way to just snip off a corner on a given angle!
Thanks, Steve
