Is there a way to slow down the speed of the drag when trying to crop a photo to exact pixels or inches? If I wanted to crop at 4.875 height but when dragging the dotted line I can't get it to stop exactly at that parameter, is there a keystroke to make the drag slow down for more precision? Thanks.
HI. I still don't have an answer for this question. The only way I know how to lasso and then cut and/or crop is by dragging the dotted line. This is very inprecise and near impossible if you want to stop the drag to pixel precision. Either there must a a key stroke while dragging to way slow down the drag so you can select at which pixel number you want to stop or maybe after you stop dragging there is a way to adjust the size of the dotted lined shape. Please help me with this as I know it is a basic function to be able to drop to precise pixel measurements but I am not able to do so. Thanks.
Hi. Thank you for answering. There is still a disconnect here though. I understand what you are saying. I should not have said lasso, because I meant and am indeed using the marquee tool, square, and it is set to show the measurements and does as I drag and then cropping or cutting is just what I wish to do. But I am not able to start the process as you describe. Shift + arrows does not activate the marquee tool to appear on the photo. The only way I can start the tool is too click (or three-finger tap) on my trackpad, then I can drag, but if I let go without dragging there is no activation of the process (no dotted line appears to drag) and if I then shift + arrows the cursor just disappears; or if I start to drag and then stop it does not allow me to switch to shift + arrows, that only makes the finished square moved on the surface but does not change the dimensions of the box.
