    In the crop tool, what's the difference between original ratio and ratio?

    Re: what's the diff?

    It refers to the Aspect ratio. For instance 35mm is a 3:2 ratio (original) and if you set original to crop when you move the crop box that ratio is maintained. This is not always ideal hence the need for the other ratio choice where you can crop to any desired ratio

      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...

      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!

      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.

      Sorry about this dumb question.
      Whenever I try to crop a photo in a given layer, it crops the entire file, that is it crops the whole thing to the dimensions in the crop.

      What am I doing wrong? Can't one crop when the image is embedded in a layer?
