    i am a starting user of photoshop and still learning my way through.
    have lurged and found a lot of useful resources here ad the web for
    which i thank all the contributors.

    this is somewhat of a strange problem. up until a month ago i could
    simply crop any item by placing a box on it and if need be stretching
    it wheichever way i wanted. however, recently i have found cropping to
    be a nightmare as when i do place a selection box to crop anything it
    will only increase or decrease in proportion to the original width and
    height etc. is there any way of disabling this in proportion cropping
    and go back to my original freestyle cropping?

    any help would be very much appreciated.

    kindest regards

    Somehow the setting changed. Click on the crop tool and look to the tool
    bar (at the top) and click-off the dimension or proportional settings.

  3. When the crop tool is selected, click on the Clear button in the
    options bar.
