Crop Changes – Photoshop CS6 Beta

Skill level

The Crop Tool in the Photoshop CS6 Public Beta has received some interesting changes. Check out what’s new with this tool!

Cropping in Photoshop CS6 has gotten some interesting changes, which seem to be a hit or miss amongst users. The fundamentals of cropping remain the same, but the way the Crop Tool functions has been tweaked.

– For one, when adjusting the crop handles, your document remains centered on your workspace.
– When rotating within the crop tool, the image rotates, rather than the crop area. This gives you a live preview of the final result.
– By default, cropped pixels are saved in case you want to revert your crop. Finally!

Of course, if you prefer to go back to the way things were in CS5, you can do so on the Options Bar.
