PS21ult Manipulating a portrait photograph so that a portion of it fills screen

    PS21ult Manipulating a portrait photograph so that a portion of it fills screen

    I have a portrait photograph. I need to be able to manipulate it such that, say, an upper section can be selected to fill the screen. If I select Scaling>Fill,  the centre portion of the photograph fills the screen image. I can't seem to be able to select the upper section of the photograph. If I select Scaling>Fit followed by Properties> Vertical =  negative 50 and Size 200/200, I can see the top of the top section of the photograph.  However, as that does not fill the screen,  I applied Scaling>Fill. I now see only the centre part of the image as noted earlier.  Thus, if it is possible to see the centre of the photograph in the  "Scaling>Fill" condition which fill the screen, how can I see the upper section which fills the screen instead?

     

    Thanks.

    Editor, Properties, play with Size and Position.

    I did Saby thanks. No matter what permutation and combination of size and position I elect, I can't see the upper portion of the photograph in fill screen condition. The max size that can be elected is 200 x 200. That displays  the centre of the photograph in full screen. The upper portion (the head of the individual) is absent. If I apply a vertical value of negative 50, the view is shifted upwards to display more of the upper portion of the photograph in full screen. Negative 50 is the max upper limit that can be displayed because once I insert a value of > negative 50 (say negative 80), then the top border of the photograph does not alter but instead, the photograph shifts down leaving a black section on top. See photograph.

    Then use 2D Editor CPU effect instead. The max Size value is 400.

    If it's still not enough you can combine them to get a 8X zoom level.

    An even better solution : use Pan & Zoom, Static. The zoom level you can reach is much bigger.

    Thanks Saby. I used  the 2D Editor CPU Effect instead with values of x = 0; y = -70 and size = 265 with Scaling = Fit. I get the steady red bar (instead of yellow going to green) as in the attachment. I am assuming that on Export, that will be rendered correctly. Your Pan/Zoom suggestion did not work on this occasion.

     

    BTW. Many thanks for your super fast response; much appreciated.

    I closed Studio and restarted. The red bar is now absent.

    What about cropping in Corrections Editor?

    Can't see anything relevant in the Corrections Editor Tony.

    Hi

    You could also try to place the pic on a track above your portrait picture and apply Studio PIP to it. Editor > 2D-3D > Effects.

    Then play with the Position, Size & Cropping functions to fill the screen with the portion you want.

    I'm not home now... on vacation. But you can crop and change the aspect ratio (double left click on the image in the Library) and it should work.
