How to crop into a new document with Photoshop?
I have a very hughe psd file with lots of layers. I need a way to do like a "copy merged" feature but pasting the result with layers instead of a flatten image.
Or in order words like a crop but into a new document instead of croping the whole original psd.
EDIT: As many don't understand I will try to expand:
I only want a portion of the original psd. When you use Rectangular Marquee tool and select a portion of the psd, and then you click Edit -> Copy Merged , and then you click New file and paste you get a flatten image. I want the same but instead of a flatten image, I want the original layers of that portion I selected using marquee tool.
If that possible? A similar workaround I found is using the marquee tool, then click on Crop document. But my psd is so hughe that take minutes to crop it, and then I have to undo steps to get the original psd back.
I hope it's clear, Im not a designer guy.
- Open the very big PSD file
- Select the crop tool
- Adjust to taste
- Apply crop (Enter or Double Click inside the crop)
- Save it as a new document so as to preserve the original (Just in case!)
Here is a different way of cropping, this may bypass the pop up question or may not:
- Add a new blank layer on top of the layer stack (as if you don't have enough!) and target it
- Select the area you want to crop to with the rectangular marquee tool
- Press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert the selection
- Fill the selected area on the blank layer with a color, say red
- Go to Image/Trim and choose the top left (or a suitable side) pixel color
This will "trim" the image to leave the selected area remaining. As I said, I am not sure if you will still see the pop up or not. Try and see, and please let us know if it worked or not.
