Thanks to all of those who responded to my postings "Making Images Use ALL of\nPhoto Paper" and "Crop Tool Not Working." I get several very helpful responses\nto my postings on this and one other Photoshop newsgroup and was able to\nresolve my problem with your advice. For some reason, the dragging feature on\nmy PS isn't working with the crop tool, but my problem is rectified by instead\nsimply clicking on the rectangular marquee icon, entering the output format\nratio (4X6, 5X7, etc.) clicking on the image and THEN dragging within the\nimage. I can then match the output format ratio exactly with my blank photo\npaper size and fill the entire blank (and without distortion) by cropping this\nway. Thanks again for your help in solving my problems.
