    Absolute Best Way to Crop in Fireworks

    roo42

      What's the absolute best way to crop in Fireworks?

       

      Should I use another program in CS5 for precision cropping or is there a "perfect" strategy the works best within Fireworks?

       

      Thanks,

          I don't know about perfect, but if I want a crop to be a particular size or cover a specific area, here's what I do:

          • add a rectangle above the image
          • reduce the opacity so the image can be seen clearly through the rectangle
          • resize (use the Info panel for specific sizes) and move the rectangle as needed
          • turn off the visibility of the image
          • use Modify > Canvas > Trim canvas, which trims the document to the size of the rectangle
          • delete the rectangle
