Crop Tool

Hi everyone. The crop tool does not seem to want to work properly for me. It makes a square and I am not able to get the crop where I need it to go. Is there a setting somewhere I am not using properly?
Also gettint this message when pulling up the image. Embedded ICC profile cannot be used.Because ICC profile is invalid image profile?? What is this about?? TIA Neb

Guess you have to push "Clear" in the option bar.
Sounds like the icc profile is corrupted. or missing in your software. Try to convert to a profile, or assign a profile. CS2; edit-menu > mode.. , CS or older; image > mode...

ICC=International Color Consortium

It is a color managing system by which color standardization is maintained through your input output devices so that what you scan is what you see on your monitor, is what is printed etc.

Hi Again Bill:
This does not sound good. I have been having a lot of problems with scanners lately. I believe I scanned this one scanning wizard as suggested on the forum . Wonder if that might have something to do with it?? Neb

Hiya Neb,

I'm only guessing here, but if you created the file using the scanner wizard it is conceivable that it used a color profile that is not available to photoshop. Try opening it and then going to "edit/color setting" in your menu bar. In the dialog box that appears, try turning off all the "color management policies" (if they are not already) and then re-save the image. In that same dialog box also look at the workspace setting next to "RGB" and setting it to "Adobe RGB 1998" and re-save it.

This icc issue really shouldn't give you any problems unless your doing work for a client, or professionaly outsourcing your printing.

Bill

Neb, if you are getting serious about retouching images, or just exchanging digital images with others, it would probably be a good idea to understand the concept of color management. There are some excellent explanations about Color Management for photoshop at this link: http://www.computer-darkroom.com/ regards, Murray
