Handling of metadata soft crop info

Explains how to control what Color Factory does with pictures that contain soft crop information in the metadata.

Soft Crop settings

Where: Channel | Metadata | General tab

In the Reading Metadata group you can choose how Color Factory should handle soft crop information in the metadata. You can choose between:

  1. Read and Apply Soft Crop data, where the high-resolution image will be cropped according to the soft-crop info,
  2. Read and preserve soft crop data, where any soft crop data in the input file will not be applied to the high-resolution file but still preserved on the output file, or
  3. to ignore any soft crop data in the input file altogether by choosing Ignore Soft Crop data.

By choosing Force Legacy Crop Tag over XMP, Color Factory will ignore any crop data in the XMP block and rather use the crop information found in legacy FotoWare 5.xx and earlier applications.
