Creating a montage: Problem with crop and new canvas



  • Brian Lawson Community moderator

    It’s because of Photo RAW’s nondestructive nature. Crop won’t get applied until the image is exported or rendered on screen. Try exporting to three images to tiffs, then compositing those.

    There can be only one crop applied to your project and the crop is applied to the whole project, not to individual layers. As soon as you import a cropped image, the crop is stripped.

    If you have a frame that your 3 photos will be set into, just let the edges of the frame hide the cropped area. If there is no frame, when you'll have to mask out the cropped areas so they don't show.

    Another option is to export your cropped images and use the exported files, with the crop permanently applied,  in your project.
