new user-cropping tool question

Postby NNN636850062436778174 » Tue Feb 05, 2019 11:34 pm

I'm considering switching from Lightroom to Capture One.
In Lightroom I have 2 monitors and when I crop on one I can see live preview on second one how that crop will look like.

I'd like to know if there's a way to do it in Capture One since I couldn't find any reference to do that.

Thanks

It does not work identically in Capture One. In case you not already tried Capture One Pro (30-day free trial) I highly recommend doing so. Only then you become familiar with how Capture One does its thing.

I did try it and I don't see a way to do it. Am I missing something ?

I don't think you are missing anything. You can darken the area outside the crop (in preferences) to produce a similar effect, but then you won't see the context of the crop as it relates to the image as a whole. You can also (temporarily) accept the crop by pressing the Select cursor tool (the big arrow on the left of the cursor tool bar) and then selecting the undo (back) arrow if you don't want to keep the crop.

Also if you don't want to keep the crop, all you have to do is press C again to re-activate the crop tool and you can adjust the crop. You don't have to commit to the crop by pressing Enter or anything like you do with some software.

Well in Lightroom when you crop on 1 monitor and have live view on 2 monitor you see realtime preview of your crop
full size without any visual distractions. Thats what I'm looking for but I guess Capture One doesn't offer that functionality.
