How to keep image from moving when cropping?

Aug 14, 2012 2:58 PM

I have been using LR for quite a while, but all of a sudden when I crop a photo, the image slides to the left or right and out of view.

 

In the past when I move the crop frame the photo would not move, that way I can see exactly how much of the photo I am cropping.

 

I have tried doing searches regarding a setting, but all I get are answers about locking the crop ratio and that is not what I need.

 

I need to keep the entire image in view when I slide the crop window.

 

Thanks!

    im not sure what you mean.... but you always move the picture with LR and the crop frame stays in the middle of the screen.

     

    with photoshop prior to CS6 you moved the crop frame, but with CS6 the default works like LR.

    maybe you mixed things up?

    Greg maybe a screnshot of what you are seeing would be helpful.

     

    Agfaclack - no need to even mention PS for this, it is only confusing.

    i don´t think so.


    because i had the same "problem" when i started with LR.

    i was confused because lightrooms crop tool worked different then photoshops and i thought i had changed some settings that made LR behave "strange".

    i had too.. a few weeks or even 2 month had i worked with LR.

    it happens sometimes when you switch between programs. that´s why it´s called confusion
