Cropping

Cropping is the artists' term for trimming away unwanted parts of a picture. You could think of it as a specialized kind of selection, which is probably why the people who created Photoshop put the Cropping tool in with the Selection Marquees. The Cropping tool is shown in Figure 3.17. Of course, you can also crop by making a selection with the rectangular marquee and then using the menu command Image, Crop to trim the picture.
