  • Crop image. It can't be this hard

    I'm not new to imaging software, but I recently got a PS subscription for the purpose of editing some old family pictures.

    I open a picture in PS. It has some jagged edges and a whitish band across the bottom. I select the crop tool and scribe around the part I want to keep. I hit the crop tool again or pick crop from the menu. The visual looks like the crop worked.

    Next I set the canvas area bigger so I can add a border around the picture.

    When the canvas size increases, the ugly bits that I cropped off are back again.

    Why?

    Please help.

    I think this is due to when cropping you have not selected the option to Delete Cropped Pixels. Without selecting the delete option the cropped areas are merely hidden

      Thank you so much! I was getting very frustrated.
