    I purchased Paint Shop Pro in 2019. I would like to crop a photo with certain fixed ratios when I do panoramas. I like sometimes 3:1 or 4:1 or 2.2:1. What is the best way to do this?

      Hello Edwin,

      A simple way to set up a fixed aspect ratio you can then resize is to select a crop tool, enter a multiple of your aspect ratio in the X and Y values at the top (say 300 x 100 for a 3:1), and then ticking the box “Maintain Aspect Ratio”. You can now resize the crop selection without worrying about it changing the aspect ratio as you go.

    The Corel tutorials are one of the reasons I purchased Paintshop Pro!

      Hello Dave,

      Our tutorial on the Selection Tools in PaintShop Pro should help with this! This tutorial goes over how to select portions of an image, which you can then copy, resize, and move around within the photo, or even copy over to another photo entirely!

      For more information on this sort of editing, our tutorial on changing the background of a photo has some more useful tips on manipulating or replacing specific parts of an image.

      Hope this helps!

    I am using PSP 18 but seem not to have other options than the “Thirds” on my crop tool. Where can I adjust settings to correct it?

      Hello Hanlie,

      Are you using the Essentials or Complete workspace? The first thing to try would be switching to the Complete workspace using the File > Workspace option, as some of the more advanced options and features are hidden in Essentials view in order to reduce clutter and make for a simpler, more streamlined experience.

    I love all the new features for the crop tool. It would have taken me a while before I noticed them. Thanks for the tutorial.
