Lesson 1. Bitmap Editing > Using the Crop Tool

Using the Crop Tool

The pecan_cluster_raw.png image shows not only the candy on the gray background, but also part of the table where the image was shot. You don’t need all that surrounding material—you just need the candy for the final image. The Crop tool allows you to select a rectangular portion of the image you want to keep and deletes the rest.

Tip

You can change the Crop tool preferences to leave the pixels outside of the cropping area. Choose Edit > Preferences (PC) or Fireworks > Preferences (Mac) and then choose the Editing category. Deselect the option to delete objects when cropping. You don’t need to do this for this exercise.
