Script: Quicker image cropping Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
A faster workaround for the lack of a crop tool in OG5.

If you save this script as a compiled .scpt file and assign it to a keystroke, you will find that:
  1. The first click produces a transparent cropping rectangle,
  2. you can then re-size the rectangle if necessary, positioning it over a full-sized image.
  3. the second click will crop the image and remove the cropping rectangle.
  • The size of the cropping rectangle is remembered between uses, in case you want to make several crops of the same size.
  • Neither cropping rectangle nor image need to be selected for the script to work.

(A re-working of an approach used in Bill Van Hecke's useful script. The aim is to cut out a few of the steps involved in preparing and sizing a transparent rectangle, and to drop the need to select both image and rectangle I kept finding that I was forgetting to extend the selection to the image).

(The .zip contains both .applescript and .scpt versions. The .scpt copy was compiled on 10.6. If you are using another version of OS X you will need to load the .applescript copy in Applescript Editor, and Save As in script format. The text version, with an .applescript extension, will not remember the size of the cropping rectangle between uses.)
