Fitting A 720x540 Image Into Tv Safe Zone

Question

I have taken my photo and resized the image to 720x540 and yet when it is added to the storyline image box the TV safe area is still covering a large section of the photo. I see the mention of using a cropping tool, but I don't want to lose parts of my photo, I just want it to fit the TV screen. I then resized the image to 360x270 and it is still showing outside the TV safe zone. What am I missing here?

Ok, I will do that, and see how it looks. I guess maybe I am missing the point of the TV Safe Zone guide. I figured when I reduced the image size it would look smaller in the box and would fall inside the TV Safe Zone guides. It seems it doesn't matter what size the photo is, it fits into that box.

Use Image Cropper to reduce the size. It doesn't cut out anything in the photos. I use 80% for the safe area size, in that software, and all fits quite nicely, in the Safe Zone, without cutting anything out of the photo.

 

You can bulk crop as many photos, at one time, as you want.

Thanks very much. Don't know what I did the first time that I actually "cropped" the photo, but I went back, did it again and this time it worked. I don't understand the math but I found when I did as suggested, did a test run, that using the 4:3 ratio at 95% I was getting a full screen on my wide screen TV and that is what I wanted. I don't intend to question how it works, just know that it does and go on with my project. LOL

 

I was wondering though, I have downloaded and installed the Image Cropper, version 1.7.2 and have done a test batch using 8 photos. I noticed in the Help Notes for previous versions there is a panel where you can actually see each of the photos in the batch and that as they are cropped they are removed from the list. Is there such a panel in the newer version? I found you couldn't see the photos once you loaded them, but as it ran the batch they scanned through and then were saved to the selected file folder.

 

Thanks for the help. I am looking forward to experimenting with my project now. :)

You're welcome. I have not had a need to use the newest version. The last version that I used was 2 or 3 versions, back.

 

In the version that I used, all of the photos were layered, on the main screen, and as each one was cropped and saved, it disappeared from the main screen.
