While Editing a image,I have unchecked " Maintain Aspect ratio" under scale option in PIP designer so that aspect ratio won't get change by itself .
But when i cropped the image , the aspect ratio get changes itself
Is there any way to lock aspect ratio ...........?

Hi mohitk -

If you want the aspect ratio to stay the same, you need to leave Maintain Aspect Ratio checked!

Yes, just like Tony said.

Leave that box checked. By unchecking it you can independently resize either edge, wheras when the box is checked, both edges will stay in sync as you resize the frame.

I'm not sure what you mean by not wanting the AR to "change by itself"

You are Wrong. I've found the solution of my problem.
No matter, Whether you have checked or unchecked the Maintain Aspect Ratio in PIP designer, if u crop any image by 'freeform' way then the aspect ratio in PIP Designer will get itself changed.

One need to crop image under certain aspect ratio like 16:9,9:16..etc. So that aspect ratio in PIP designer won't get changed.

Hi mohitk -

I've been wrong before, so I'm used to it by now.

What you've discovered is that the two functions you're using are completely unrelated.

In PiP Designer, checking or unchecking the Maintain Aspect Ratio option has NOTHING to do with what you do in Crop Image.

You can check or uncheck all you like in PiP Designer, but the options selected in Crop Image will override it. Maintain Aspect Ratio in PiP Designer applies to the image in PiP Designer. It's not a fixed/permanent setting fro that image.

Happy to help - Tony
