Cropping and framing

I would like to share here my method for cropping and framing correctly any kind of pictures, by using a "home-made" proportional grid.

The problem comes from Lightroom : even if you can change between different styles of grids for framing (grid, diagonals, thirds, etc), you don't have all in the same time.

That's why I created a grid in colors composed of all necessary lines, which can simply copy/paste in Photoshop, to place the picture in the background to the exact pixel you want,

In the examples below, you can see how it works from the original picture (1) to the final result (3). In this case, the grid has been transformed in a square shape.

Hope you will find it interesting, and don't hesitate to leave a comment, or better, to share your own method...

Kind regards.

Eric
