I don't have a FR yet for my f/7 ES102 so FL714 it is.. I just processed 7 hours on The Eagle Nebula and want to zoom in, crop and save that zoomed in view (Pillars of course) but can't figure how to do this in PI and google searches aren't helping.. Can someone please post a step by step here.. Thanks..

Processes -> Dynamic Crop

 

Edit for more details :)

 

Draw box around what you want to crop. Click green checkbox. Once you're happy with the new framing, File -> Save As... Pick "JPEG files" from the dropdown list at the bottom of the window. Name it whatever. Click Save button. You'll get some new popup asking you to select the quality and tick a few checkboxes.

Zoom on the image until need. Draw a preview rectangular. Click right button on the preview tab. Save as image.

This worked so thanks again Johnny.. Is using this method saving the image with the best quality/resolution?
