Crop Tool

To see the printer friendly version of this tutorial, click HERE

We're going to look at two ways the Crop Tool can be used

Open PSP and open a picture. I used a picture that comes in the My Pictures folder with Windows

Click on the Crop tool 

Click on a part of the picture that you want to crop and keeping the mouse button pressed, make a selection around the picture

This selection is quite big so to make it smaller, move your mouse over the lines of the box selection. The mouse will turn into a double headed arrow. Keeping the button pressed, drag the line down until it's closer to the iceberg. Do this with all four lines

PSP 7

Now go to your tool options box and click on Crop Image

  PSP 8 Double Click outside of the crop box

 

Now your picture will be cropped

Ok, now we're going to crop again but this time we're going to crop an image that's on a transparent background.

Open your picture in PSP

Click on your Crop Tool 

PSP 7

Go to your tool options box and click on Crop Settings

PSP 7

A new window will open.

Click on Select opaque area - current layer.

Click Ok

 

 

PSP 8 Click on the 'Snap crop rectangle to: - merged opaque' button

 

You will see a box has appeared around your picture

PSP 7

Go back to your tool options box and click Crop Image and that's it, your image will be cropped and you can save :o)

  PSP 8 Double click outside of the crop box.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial
