Cropping around specific points?


Recommended Posts

When you have an image, how can you choose a point in the image and crop a perfect square around the point?


My use case is making someone's nose the exact centre of the image.

1. Position the pointer over the point of the nose and note the mouse coordinates in the Status Bar.


Next, do the math ;)  


2. Top left will be X= noseX - half the square size, Y=nosey - half the square size.


3. Bottom right will be X+square size, Y+square size.


4. Activate the Rectangle Select tool.


5. Position your mouse at the top left location click and drag out the square (i.e. hold down Shift) until the mouse reaches the bottom right.


6. Press Ctrl + Shift + X
