Add Canvas to an Image with the Crop Tool


Mouse: Resize cropping box beyond image area

This is another one of those cool hidden shortcuts because it isn't obvious at first. First, select the entire image area with the Crop tool. After you see the cropping box handles, you can then resize the box beyond the image area. When you apply the crop, it adds the additional canvas to the image area. To add canvas equally from the center of the image, hold down the (Option) [Alt] key while dragging a handle. Remember, you must create a crop area first, and then you can adjust it outside the image area. In ImageReady, you can crop beyond the canvas size directly ”the Crop tool allows you to start drawing your crop rectangle outside of the canvas. To use this tip effectively, you should be in a Full Screen view mode.
