I haven't worked with Photoshop for a long time, I use Lightroom pretty exclusively these days, sorry!

OK, I just checked.


First, with my Photoshop CS3 the Shield option shows up only after you draw a crop rectangle. Then, you can turn the Shield on and off, or you can click on the color picker and just click on the type of shield you want.

Things may be a lot different with CS5, I don't know, but try drawing a crop after picking the crop tool and see if those choices come up on the toolbar.

And, what came up for my present values was a black shield with 75% opacity. I assume that is the default, because I don't remember ever messing with it, but I could be wrong!

Hey, no need to apologize.

Seems you're using the default (75%). I hazard a guess that they're the same in PS and LR (great if anyone would check).

Had you voted in the poll? Six votes isn't really what I'd call a strong base :D

Lightroom doesn't have a "setting" for the opacity, but eyeballing things I'd say it's somewhere around the 75% range.

I didn't do the poll simply because I don't touch Photoshop enough to even mess with the opacity on the cropping tool or care about the settings.

It does if you use "lights out" while cropping:
