Talk:Cropping (image)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Photography is the more commonly referred-to area for the concept, which is best introduced with ref to photo cropping, hence new example at the top and video reformatting examples in a gallery at the end. Still needs some serious work on the cinematography section, with heavy ref to the article at Aspect ratio. I'm not sure cropping is particularly relevant to cinematography, as it's (more correctly) described as matting done either in camera or in projection. It might more appropriate to broadcasting, but although I know less about it, I'm really not sure it's any different in effect. mikaultalk 00:12, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Cropping images on Wikipedia[edit]

I was wondering whether there is a wikitext method to crop images, to avoid uploading a new version. It doesn't appear so: Wikipedia_talk:Images/Archive 2#Showing_only_part_of_an_image. kostmo (talk) 02:56, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

And see here at Commons. I've been wondering about the same thing. It would be a very convenient feature for maps when all you need is a specific region and here I'm thinking specifically of georeferenced (locator) maps. For some images, we don't have permission to create derivative versions (such as cropped images), but if we had the technology, that sort of thing should be easier to track down than uploads of modified versions. How about leaving a note at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical) or Bugilla? Cavila (talk) 12:14, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
