Placing objects by coordinates?

Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to place an object at specified coordinates? I would like something more precise than eyeballing it.

Re: Cut frame plug-in

Thank you so much! I'm still trying to replace my old paper-scrapbooking tools with digital-scrapbooking equivalents. and it's challenging sometimes. I am having to recreate my entire workflow.

Re: Crop to Frame

grow by one pixel won't select the interior. I'm sorry, evidently I wasn't very clear. I meant select the interior of the frame, then grow the selection by one pixel (so there are no gaps between the frame and the photo), then invert the selection, then clear the area outside of the selection. The ...

Re: Crop to Frame

It's not really a crop. It's more like clear anything that isn't in the frame (selection). Sorry--I'm using the word "crop" in the scrapbooking sense. I guess it doesn't necessarily translate across the board. If I script it, I still require you to select the frame by which time it's the same as an...

Re: How do I crop bottom layer around top layer? - SOLVED

...When I tried it by selecting the outside of the frame, I got a 1-pixel remnant of the photo around the outside of the frame and couldn't figure out how to get rid of it. That often happens when selecting a background for example, the common solution is grow the selection by a pixel or two. I tri...

Crop to Frame

Any way to get a script for this procedure? Cropping to the inside of the frame seems to work best.

Re: How do I crop bottom layer around top layer?

Krikor rich2005 I combined instructions from both of you, and it worked like a charm! I got the best results by fuzzy selecting the inside of the frame, inverting it, and then making my cut. When I tried it by selecting the outside of the frame, I got a 1-pixel remnant of the photo around the outsi...

How do I crop bottom layer around top layer? - SOLVED

Is there a way that I can crop a bottom layer (for instance, a photo) by using the outer edge (but not any inner edges) of a non-rectangular top layer (for instance, a frame) as the cropping template? I'm sure I'm overlooking something simple, but I'm not seeing it. Stated another way, I have two la...
