When Do You Crop Your Images?


I was wondering when you guys crop your photos. Cropping is almost always the last thing that I do. I do any processing in Lightroom, CS5, or any plug-ins and bring the image back to Lightroom to crop.


My favorite way to crop a photo is in Lightroom. It's the biggest Lightroom feature that makes me use it over Aperture. Lightroom's crop tool allows you to hit the "L" button to black out the entire screen except for the cropped area of the image. You can see what the final image will look like without the cropped areas visible.


When do you crop your photos in your photo workflow?
