CLOSED: Crop not working sometimes
« on: July 30, 2012, 12:39:49 PM »
I have met the issue a couple times but I cannot really describe how to reproduce. Some times it happens on a photo I cannot select the crop in the Preview Window. When I exit the preview window and open it again the crop works fine as if nothing have had happened.

Last time it happened with a 1DX photo but it happened previously with 1D mk4 and 5D mk3 photos as well. Seemingly it is a random phenomenon.

I'm using OSX 10.6.8 and PM 5.0, build 13057 (acc29f8)

On a Win7 64-bit system:

I just ran into the same issue that NEF files edited in NX2 or TIFF files generated in CS5 refuse to accept crops using PM5 RC. Also, using PM4.6.9 I can crop these images without problem.

Also, crop marks made in PM4.6.9 are not visible in PM5 RC and vice versa.

Seems that in V5RC2 the cropping now works fine on all TIFF files and NEF files :-)

OK, there are still compatibility issues.

Crops made in V4.6.9 to NEF files are visible in V5RC2, but cannot be changed (moved, resized) in V5RC2. They can only be removed.

Crops made in V4.6.9 to TIFF/JPEG files are visible in V5RC2, but cannot be changed (moved, resized) in V5RC2. They can only be removed.

Crops made in V5RC2 are visible in V4.6.9 unless one rotates the crop. But as soon as a TIFF or JPEG file was touched by V5RC2, cropping in V4.6.9 does not work any longer for these files (actually, it does work, but does changes are not visible in V5RC2)

So, there is still a big compatibility issue for cropping in V5 or earlier versions.

Looks like the cropping information for a file gets out of sync between the two versions and/or write to/read from different locations.

I had issue with every PNG file with previous RC version but RC2 seems to fix it. Thanks a lot.
