p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Cropping from Landscape to Portrait in Lightroom and vice versa


When I'm editing portrait or wedding photos I like to keep my pictures at a 4x6 (or 2x3) ratio. Sometimes I like to change a landscape photo into portrait orientation. Everyone once in a while I'd like to change portrait to landscape. But I can't seem to keep the lock on the ratio while flipping the crop. Any way to do this? I guess I'd like a way to keep the standard ratio, but reverse.

I'm working on LR 1.4 -- I will be upgrading within a the month, so let me know if there is a way to do it in LR 2.0. Thanks!

If you have Photoshop it's just a simple marquee or crop tool option.

I don't know what method you're using to flip the crop. I grab the corner of the crop box and move it to where it needs to be for portrait and the aspect ratio stays locked. Worked for me in 1.x and still works in 2.1.

This is how it works for me as well. It switches from landscape to portrait based on where you drag the corner.

Thanks! I was surprised it was so easy to do, don't know why I hadn't figured it out before...
