Here is a basic easy tip for cropping with Photoshop. Many times in the past all I would do to crop out a piece of a picture would be to click on the crop tool, click on the picture and drag the cursor so that the crop box would include everything or nearly everything I wanted cropped. Often times though this is not very accurate.
An Easy Cropping Solution.
Lizzie showed me how to use the guidelines sometime ago, and since I discovered them, I have used them almost every time I want to crop.
In order to use guidelines you need to have the rulers on. Go to the view tab and click “Rulers” or just use the shortcut “CTR R” which will enable the rulers.
Grab The Guidelines
Next put your cursor in the ruler at the top or side, click and drag the ruler over to the edge of part of the picture you want to crop. Do it again to create the other side of the crop box. Then grab the opposite ruler and do the other two sides. Now that you have the area defined, click either the rectangular marquee or the elliptical marquee tool. Click at the top of your area marked off by the guidelines and drag down until the entire area for the rectangular marquee is selected or until the elliptical crop selection fills the box. The crop tool will use the guidelines, so your cropping selection will be much more accurate.
Release the cursor then CTRL X or CTRL C > CTRL N >CTRL V. Then go to the Layer tab at the top of the screen, select “flatten image”. Then you can save the cropped pic as a new pic and you are ready to use your cropped picture.
What Tips Do You Have?
I hope this little tip is something you can use. If you have some other Photoshop tips for me, please leave a comment as I am eager to learn new Photoshop tips. This can include links to Photoshop tutorials you may have done.
