How to Customize the Crop Guide Overlay

The crop guide or cropping mask you see in FLOW can be customized. FLOW references a transparent PNG file called crop_overlay.png in the Overlays folder (C:\ProgramData\Flow\Overlays). You can customize this file in an editing software and save it back into the Overlays folder.


  1. Close FLOW.

  2. Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Flow\Overlays and locate crop_overlay.png.

  3. Edit the file in PhotoShop or editing software

  4. Save your graphic as a new transparent PNG back to the same location and relaunch FLOW

  5. Set the default Crop Guide for FLOW in Preferences -> Capture -> Display tab

    1. Uncheck default overlay PNG and navigate to the prefered overlay to use for each orientation
