Research for a new image editing program.

Meant to make this thread a poll.

Defaults:
Adobe Photoshop: 75%
GIMP: 50%
Picasa: 38%

(Crop shield is the darkened area around the crop selection / crop area)

Whatever the default in Lightroom is. As long as I can see both what I'm cropping out and what I'm left with, it doesn't really matter to me.

:p Reminds me of all those long evenings with the enlarger.

One of the most important polls we have ever had.

Ah. But what amount of light is hitting the front, and what color are they? ;)

All depends if the monitor is calibrated or not!

+1

I would respond to the poll, but I don't know what LR3's default is. Maybe 30%? I dunno.

Is that where you take a big pair of shears and trim away the sides of your monitor?

Thank you, all three. I don't have LR available (GNU/Linux), but measured GIMP and Picasa's by making a crop selection on a white image, taking a screenshot, and eyedropping it in GIMP. This shows percentage of black. Would be great if someone could do this in LR. I'll edit the first post to reflect it :)

Other defaults would also be welcome :)

Maybe no one is voting because no one cares... it's user preference... it doesn't change the outcome nor the processing workflow... so why does it matter??

This seems like a contradiction. Care to explain?

As posted; research for an image editing program :)

I mean exactly what I said... No one cares what other people use. I'm not going to base my choice of something like this on a poll... I'm going to base it on whatever I feel works best for me.

Your first post says nothing about this being research for a new image editing software option... it says, "Crop shield - settings you use" even in the linked thread's OP you just explain what "Crop Shield" is and asks what settings people use.

Maybe if you put that you are doing research to develop new software (in the OP, not reply #11) people would be more likely to vote... Otherwise, as I said before, no one cares what other people are using for a setting like this.
