Selecting only the files that have been cropped
« on: August 08, 2015, 10:00:58 AM »
After ingesting files and going through the whole lot, cropping some and saving them in another file, the original files have the crop outline still on the thumbnail. How can I select just these files so I can invert the selection and delete whole lot of files that I didnt think were worth using?

You could make a custom sort and use the {hascrop} variable.  The images with a crop set on them will sort at the top, and those that do not have a crop will follow.
