    I would like to see one or more “grids” to help me think about composition as I am cropping an image.

    There is a rule of thirds grid in crop currently. Are you asking for another grid option?

    Maybe I missed it. Is it on all the time? Or do I have to turn it on?

    When you enter the crop tool, there is a button that looks like # to the left of the cancel / ok button pair.
    That is the grid control.

    Great, thanks Nik,
    I missed that one also !
    Lots of “hidden” functions in Nitro -;)

    Hi Nik,

    Could be handy to include the ‘Golden’ ratio grid too. I sometimes prefer that for some images.

    I probably wouldn’t bother with others though – such as the Golden ‘spiral’.

    Cheers

    Andy.

    Yes, I can see that, but it would complicate the UI. Right now, there is a single button: on / off. Adding a different choice requires a menu or something like, and crop is already complicated.

    Thanks Nik,

    Yes, I understand, no problem. I know you want to rework the crop tool in the future, it’s something to think about if it could be done. It’d certainly be a useful feature to add. No rush though ;-).

    Cheers

    Just a thought, as a simple UI option, how about just using a triple click to cycle between none/thirds/golden. Of course I’d understand this wouldn’t work so well for any more, but should be fine for just those perhaps.

    Cheers

    It’s worth considering. Thanks for the suggestion.
