    Exciting ?

    Almost all post processing software allows cropping so I don't see why it's a problem ?

    What im looking for is a program that keeps the image in the same size ratio when cropped. I have photoshop cs4 & Bdsizer - both great software.

    Most imaging software has a cropping tool, you need to select "re-size" first on the image you want to crop and look for a box with "Maintain Apect Ratio", click in that box and that should do it.

    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    You can also select the crop tool, then up the top left where the selected tool shows, click the small arrow next to it and pick your aspect ratio, along with PPI,from a drop down list. No need to hold the shift key down then. To reset the tool, right click it.

    Not too familiar with menu names in Photoshop, but Gimp is pretty much the same. I just go:
    Image->Scale Image
    Then where you enter the values, there should be a small lock icon next to it (make sure it's clicked in). Once you enter the size of one axis, the other will be set to the ratio of the original. I don't know how to describe it fully in words, but you should get the gist of it.

    This is assuming Photoshop is still similar to Gimp, haven't used it in a while. I'm sure it's there somewhere.

    Another thing which you might find handy is that you should be able to scale with percentages too.

    The nifty freeware editor, Irfanview, will do that for you if you need a simpler, costless alternative.
