    PS CC - Applying the same crop to multiple images

    way phat

      On a Mac, PS CC 2018


      I would like to apply a crop and rotation to one image, then apply the same crop to other similar images without having to create a tool preset or action.


      I've tried to follow along with this Julianne Kost video:


      Quick Tip -- Cropping Two Images to the Same Size in Photoshop CS6 - YouTube


      However, at about the 1 min mark, she goes into the crop pull down menu to select the Size & Resolution option, but in my version of PS CC that option isn't present.


      From her video (PS CS6):

      From my pull down (PS CC 2018):

      Where can I find that functionality in CC 2018, or how can I achieve similar.

          She's only using the Size & Resolution dialog to grab the "front image" dimensions, which you can now pull directly from the drop-down menu (the other functions of Size & Resolution  are available directly in the toolbar when you choose W x H x Resolution instead of Ratio)

            I see what you are saying, and I see why even though I was seeing that my attempts to implement it were not working.


            Where I am still stuck, though, is with the rotation as part of the crop. Is a duplication of that possible from one image to another? This "Front Image"approach seems to only work for pixel dimensions.

              You do it with ACR.  Open up all the documents you want to Crop, and select them in ACR with Ctrl A (Cmd A).  Apply the crop and any other settings that you want synced, and its job done.  You can do this with JPGs as well be selecting them all in Bridge, and opening with Ctrl R (Cmd R).

              Or you could do it from Bridge by pasting the settings. Open the first image in ACR and apply the Crop and any other settings, and click on Done

              Then right click that image in Bridge and Develop settings > Copy Settings

              Then select the other images in Bridge and right click Develop Settings > Paste Settings.

              This will open a dialog window in which you will need to check Crop which is off by default, and uncheck other settings you do not want to sync.  This would work better than opening them all up in ACR if you are dealing with a lot of images.

                Create the crop you want to achieve.


                Go to the same pull down menu and select: New  Crop Preset this will save your crop.
