Crop to selection

Recommended Posts

Thanks in advance!

I would like to crop to this image text:

With magicWand i selected text then cntrl+shift+x to crop

but maybe because of the diff in image colors(?)

results are ugly:

Pls, what is a better way to do this?

the results are so because you are using multiple layers, or because your magic wand isn't at 0 tolerance. Try flattenning the image first.

Otherwise, you can use the same principle but instead of the wand use the rectangle selection tool.

Thanks:

Ah, zero tolerance, ok.

Ah, the old rectangle tool (to me this is winging it).

Pdn does a good job of reporting the exact height & width of canvas.

But, I wish that pdn would also show the exact height & width of a selected Object.

Then Image ReSize and Canvas Resize would be a cinch.

Maybe pdn already does this, and i am just not seeing it.

Thanks folks.. vmars

Ah yes, thar she be, great.

I noticed that i dont really need to know image size,

to make canvas size = image size, if i do the following:

select textImage with mWand, then click on Image/'Crop to Selection'.

But its nice to be able to see imageSize.

Thanks.. vmars
