Case: I have a circle 200x200, then I add a drop shadow to it, so the shadow is outside of the visible part. If I click crop and click in one of the areas to adjust it shows me the area that have pixels on it. So my question is: Is there a command to crop to that area? Because going manually isn't a good option. I am using Photoshop 21.

You can use Image > Reveal All to expand the canvas to include all pixels.

Note that if the shadow isn't perfectly symmetrical, the circle won't end up in the middle of the canvas, which might be a problem depending on your workflow.

It sounds like you want to increase the Canvas size. This is the opposite of cropping.

If so, you could use Image > Canvas size, and increase it until it's big enough to fit the drop shadow. This will also allow you to keep the circle in the middle.

Here's an example

  • Yes the action is increase the canvas but how do I know how much do I have to increase? I already accepted the final answer. Thanks for our time. – Khrys May 3 at 16:56
