Artistic Crop

The Artistic Crop effect accentuates a certain part of an image by blurring the rest of it. The focus of attention is shifted to this part and the photograph is seen in a new light.

Working with the Artistic Crop involves two processes:

  1. Frame creation.
  2. Adjusting the image in the frame.

Artistic Crop

Frame. The frame is created from a part of the original image. Adjust the parameters for the frame:

Border Line. It is the separation line between the frame and the image. Adjust parameters for the Border Line:

Adjusting the image in the frame. The image can be scaled and shifted relative to the frame.

The parameter Scale Image to Frame defines the way the image is scaled to the frame, if scaled at all.

Image Shift. This parameter sets the position of the image in the frame. The image can be shifted horizontally and vertically:

The values of the parameter vary between -100% and 100%. By default the parameters are set to 0, that is the image is in the center of the frame.

It is also possible to shift the image on the frame using the mouse cursor:

Press the Ctrl on the keyboard and you will see a dotted frame. Put the cursor inside the dotted frame, press the left button of the mouse and, keeping it pressed, drag the frame. The parameters of the Image Shift will be recalculated accordingly and the image will be automatically processed.
