Adobe Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


When preparing files for the web, it’s important to crop your images as closely as possible to keep the file sizes down. If your image has an unnecessary solid background, such as the white background shown in Figure A , skip the Crop tool—let Photoshop do the work for you.

Choose Image > Trim. When the Trim dialog box opens, as shown in Figure B , select which pixels you want the cropping based on, and then choose the areas you want trimmed away. Click OK and watch Photoshop crop your image with precision, as shown in Figure C .
