    How do I set my crop tool (if that's possible?) to automatically crop any size image to 300dpi? Regardless of the dimension of the image that is. Thanks!

    In CS3 you would select the crop tool, put 300 in the dpi in options, click the arrow next to the crop symbol in the option bar, click the little flyout arrow, and select new tool preset. But I think it would be easier just to put 300 dpi in the option space. It will stay active till you close photoshop

      In CS5 the crop tool has that option available.

        Thanks chaps. I've just upgraded from CS3 to 5 and there are number of features/tools etc that have moved or gone and I'm never sure which! Yeh, I know I should RTFM but at midnight I run out of steam!

          Using Crop Tool
          by albatrosss
          I'm sure that I hit a wrong key but I can't get rid of the "width" and "height" when cropping. Prior to this, as you know, I was able to crop any way I wanted. How do I get rid of the width and height boxes.

          Hope that this is clear.

          Cropping Without the Crop Tool
          by T Paul
          There are a lot of different ways you can crop an image in PhotoShop. Here is one way without even using the crop tool.

          1. Open your image
          2. Select the rectangular marquee tool and make your selection.
          3. Go under the Image menu and select Crop and you’re done.

          crop tool in PE4
          by camner
          In PE4, the crop tool has a drop down menu item called "use photo ratio", which I've been using to keep the aspect ratio the same as the original when cropping.

          After nicely cropping a bunch of pictures, I realized to my horror that the pixel count and resolution are staying...

          Rule of thirds grid.

          Can someone tell me how to stop the rule of thirds grid coming up as default in the CS5 crop window. I find it an annoying visual distraction.
