How do u crop?


Recommended Posts

Select the area you want to keep with one of the Selection tools, and click the Crop to Selection button on the toolbar (just to the right of Paste), or Image -> Crop to Selection (the top option), or press [Ctrl]+[shift]+[X].

As to the checkers, that just indicates that that section of the image is transparent. The checkers won't show up in a saved image.

Rick:

I think you could use a section in the FAQs regarding those checkers. I'll include a discription of them and why they're there in my Basics tutorial as well.

What if I want to crop an image that isn't a perfect square?

Moved to General Discussion

This isn't a tutorial, nor a request for a specific tutorial. Please post things in the right forum.

Edited the title and text

Please don't use so many question marks. One is plenty enough.

Or I could find a way to make it more intuitive ........ that'd be my goal anyway. Adding a FAQ entry only helps the people who read the FAQ, which is a small number of people.
