Shot Composition

Don't forget about cropping. At print resolution, a wide shot works. On video (especially if it ends up on the Internet), tighter is better. Always scan your photos at a higher resolution setting so that you can zoom in for fine corrections, and still have pixel data if you need to crop.

Step 1. Open the file Ch10_Composition.tif from the DVD-ROM, then select the Crop tool (@).

Step 2. Specify a target size (such as 720X540 for NTSC standard or 720X534 for NTSC DV in square pixels) in the Options bar. Be sure to type px for pixels if your rulers are set to inches.

Step 3. Crop the photo tighter, being sure to allow a 10% gutter on each side for action-safe purposes.
