    I want to crop to a specific pixel height and width. When I pick
    something with the crop tool I expect that *somewhere* it should tell
    me what the dimensions will be when I crop, but I can't find it.

    Is there a way?

  2. Just use the rectangular selection tool. Set the selection to a fixed
    pixel size (in the toolbar), then use Image->Crop.

    (I think, I'm not at a PS equipped machine right now!)

    You can do it with the Crop tool ... or try the Rectangular Marquee
    tool and in the 'style' box choose 'fixed size' instead of 'normal' to
    make a selection (make sure the feather is set to 0), enter the
    dimensions in the width and height boxes and then do Image - Crop.

    When you select the crop tool, a toolbar opens at the top which allows
    you to enter values for width, height and resolution. You can enter
    values in inches, mm, px, etc. You can save your frequently used values
    as a new tool as well.

    In addition to the other responses, the Info Pallette will show you
    the pixel dimensions of the area you are selecting with the crop tool
    as you define the area.
