Cropping

Thisdocument: iscreatedwithtrialversion ofCHM2PDFPilot2.16.100.of the extraneous stuff at all four sides of the photo. While you can simply make a rectangular selection with the Rectangular Marquee tool, and then choose Image > Crop, there's a better, more flexible way. Just follow these steps.

1. Choose the Crop tool from the Tool Palette (or press C to switch to it).

2. Place the cursor in one corner in the image where you'd like to start cropping, and drag to the opposite corner. When you release the mouse button, a selection rectangle with handles in each of the four corners and midpoints of the selection lines appears, as you can see in Figure 4.9. The area outside the rectangle is darkened to make it easier to see what your composition will look like cropped.

3. To fine-tune your cropping, drag the handles in any direction to enlarge or reduce the size of the cropped area.

4. When you're ready to apply the cropped area, press Enter (Return on the Mac).
