Cropping bug?
« on: April 11, 2017, 06:38:44 pm »
Photo Mechanic Version 5.0, build 18327 (5034d39)
Mac OS 10.11.6

I just discovered a cropping issue with PM. Whenever my crop box touches the right and/or bottom edge of a photo, the resulting cropped photo will end up with a 1 pixel black border on the right and/or bottom. If the crop box only touches the left or top edges, or if it does not touch any edge of a picture, then all is well. The black border is always 1 pixel regardless of image size.

It's hard to spot on high-res images unless you're working at the pixel level, which is probably why I didn't noticed it sooner, but it was definitely noticeable when I was working on some low-res files today.

To see if I could figure out when this started happening I looked through a batch of old files I know for sure were cropped with PM. I was surprised to find images going back to 2013 that had not exactly the same, but a similar issue. Instead of a prefect 1 pixel black border, there is a dark-light-dark border 3 pixel wide on the right side of all my images.

I've attached some samples I did today: an original un-cropped image, plus 1 top-left crop, and 1 bottom-right crop..
I also attached a pixel-level crop of an image from 2013 showing the odd striped border on the right.
