Re: Opinion on cropping portraits

I don't know about portraits, but I crop most of my photos. I have actually made a habit out of composing with a margin both vertically and horizontally so I can later crop special versions for 16:9 and 4:3 formats (for viewing on TV and iPad) without leaving important content out. And all three versions get cropped individually to get the best composition for that output format.

I think that cropping is one of the really enjoyable parts of PP where I can test different compositions and see what works best. And as someone said earlier in the thread: If you practise on composition in PP, you may also get more skilled at nailing the right composition when shooting.
