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

In Color Factory Settings, expand the relevant channel and select Metadata

Open the General tab.

The following dialog appears.


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

  • Read and Apply Soft Crop data - the high-resolution image is cropped according to the soft-crop info,
  • Read and Preserve Soft Crop data - any soft crop data in the input file is not applied to the high-resolution file but is still preserved on the output file
  • Ignore Soft Crop data - ignore soft crop data in the input file altogether

Select Force Legacy Crop Tag over XMP to ignore any crop data in the XMP block and instead use the crop information found in legacy FotoWare 5.xx and earlier applications.
