  • command grayed out

    In PS CC, I brought up an image to crop, but the crop command was grayed out. What makes that happen? How to remedy? Thanks!

    Were you using the crop menu command or the crop tool? The menu command requires you to make a selection first.

      Oh ok, now how's that done? I wanted it to crop by aspect ratio.

        For that you'd use the crop tool instead. When you click it you see all the options at the top.

          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.

          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.

          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!

          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.
          by AKMac
          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.
