Crop Image script Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next

Keith Lang of Plasq fame asked me today how to crop an image in OmniGraffle, and I felt like I should have a better answer than our usual several-step process. It's not that hard, but I really felt like it should be a one-step thing.

So, until we can improve the experience in the app, Lizard and I started on a little AppleScript that works kind of like the Intersect command in the Shapes submenu. Create a rectangle on top of the image you want to crop, select both objects, and run this script. Note that this only works properly when your original image is at its full original size.

Of course, you can always use the image placement controls in the Image inspector, but this is a nice little shortcut.
