Hi, in PS there is a very useful feature called "auto crop and straighten photo". Input is either one photo or a several photos in one image. The function automatically crops the photo(s), straightens them and creates a new file for each photo found. I find this very useful, e.g. when digitising analog photos. I think that would be a great feature in pixelmator pro, particularly in combination with ML and batch processing through automator. What do you think?

Definitely a cool idea and within the realms of possibility with more automation support in Pixelmator Pro — we've been looking into this recently.

Thanks, Andrius. Does that mean that this feature is on your list and we can expect it to come soon?

I never like to make promises about features before we begin working on them so I really can't say that you should expect this soon but we've made a note of this and we'll think about it. That's about the best I can do for now.

Just wanted to cast my vote. A smart cropping feature, runnable as a quick action, would be a game changer.

Right now I'm using smartcrop.js command line interface, but it would be amazing to have something like that baked into Pixelmator Pro.
