7.57. Crop Layers to Content

The Crop Layers to content command automatically crops the selected layers, unlike the Crop Tool, or the Resize Layers to Selection command, which let you manually define the area to be cropped.

La commande scanne le calque selon une ligne horizontale et une ligne verticale et découpe le calque dès qu’elle rencontre une couleur différente, quelle que soit sa transparence.

You can use this command to crop a layer to the dimensions of a subject that is lost in a solid background which is too large.
