About cropping & re-sizing
(for video links, scroll down)
To crop you can draw a free hand crop or create a crop aspect ratio or "shape".
Our application accepts entering aspect ratios in 3 different ways.
single number : 1.78
two seperate numbers : 16:9
enter the desired final size in pixel dimensions : 1000 x 562
NOTE: aspect ratio and image dimensions are not exactly the same thing.
An image that is 2000 pixels wide and 1000 pixels high would have an aspect ratio of 2:1
However an image that was 200 pixels wide and 100 pixels high would also have an aspect ratio of 2:1
So, aspect ratio describes the "shape" of the square or rectangle you want, not necessarily the pixel dimensions.

NOTE : (It is not a requirement to decide on an aspect ratio to use our software.)
5/ Lastly we have a unique feature that allows you to enter the WIDTH and HEIGHT of the finished images.
This action sets the aspect ratio without you having to consider it.
1/ After the aspect ratio is made enter in WIDTH or HEIGHT to set the dimensions.
NOTE: Because the aspect ratio has been defined , you can only enter WIDTH OR HEIGHT , not both.
If you wish to enter a WIDTH and HEIGHT together, no problem, just right click on the image frame and choose [clear all] , then enter your desired WIDTH and HEIGHT, then draw your crop.
2/ Enter WIDTH and HEIGHT together , this will set the re-size and the aspect ratio at the same time.
