Crop tool - help for a newby

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Sergio Cecchetti, Nov 17, 2003.

  1. I'm new to Photoshop and I can't find a way to force the crop tool to fixed
    ratio. Can someone give me a hint?

    Thank you, Sergio

    Once you click on the crop tool, the above options bar (right below the
    file.. edit... image... bar) will allow you to type in the dimensions
    for the crop tool. You can choose pixels or inches simply by typing "px"
    or "in" after the height/width numbers you enter.

    When you then use the crop tool it will keep the aspect ratio of the
    measurements you select. (ie. if you want a 200px x 400px crop the tool
    will keep the tool at a 2 to 4 ratio) Once you click enter then the
    selected crop will be 200px by 400px.

    If you want the crop tool to be 200px by 400px automatically (not just
    proportionately) then use the rectangular marque tool. Set the
    dimensions to the desire height and width and when you use the marque
    tool, a box will appear automatocally set to 200px X 400px. When you're
    ready to crop just go to image>crop.

    Hope this helps,
