Crop more quickly when you crop from selection (CS/CS2/CS3/CS4)

Added on Friday 19th of March 2010 06:13 am EST


Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2/CS3/CS4

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


When you have an image area selected and decide to crop the image to that size, don’t reach for the Crop tool. Instead, when you have a selection like the one shown in Figure A, simply choose Image > Crop and Photoshop automatically crops your image to the selection, as shown in Figure B.

If your selection is elliptical or irregularly shaped, then Photoshop will crop to the closest parallelogram just outside your selection edge.
