It’s often handy to have your photo cropped to a wide format. 16:9 photos, for example, are very striking and very popular. But ordinary cropping has its downsides too.

Working this way, you can create a wide-angle picture using some simple steps. With no cropping or losses. Take a look at how to do it.

Every photographer wonders from time to time about whether they’ve edited a photo just right, or whether e.g. different colors would suit it better instead.

Variants let you create several virtual copies of a single photo and then edit them, and only then choose the best one. Quickly, easily, and without wasting disk space.
