I have a question and I know one of you HOGS can help me. What does the lock do in crop and straighten module and how do I get it to work for me. I will take an event sport or any other and import into a folder I have set up for it. I then do all the post work and crop etc. I then export to another folder I have set up for it. My problem is that when I do the second folder it doesn't show my crops. I have tried some things but nothing has worked for me yet. please help this old and not computer literate get this figured out. Thanks in advance. BE SAFE TO ALL.

Look at your export and assure you're exporting the edited version. In the File Settings, there's a series of file types. Pick the appropriate value other than 'original'.

The pad lock in the cropping tool helps to keep the aspect at a certain value, across images as you edit. Unlocking that icon is useful, but I tend to have a hard time getting the locked closed and kept closed.

But, the problem you've described should be resolved in the export parameters. Please review and confirm.

I will work on that today sometime. When I start I put crop at 3.000 x 2.216. That is what MaxPreps.com wants sent to them. I do know tat when locked the crop lines move different. When unlocked you can move all the lines. Thank you so much. I will let you know how it goes. BE DSAFE!
