Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Cropping for cleanup, part of Photoshop CS6: Restoring Photos.
One of the first tools that I think you'll want to think about when it comes …to cleaning up an image, is the Crop tool. …I realize you might not think of the Crop tool as a cleanup tool, especially in the …context of older images that need a lot of work. …But very often, those small details that you might otherwise miss, can really make …a big difference in the final image. With this image for example, it looks …like it was a scan from a print. An we can see the edge of that print …going around the outside perimeter of the photo. …It also looks like the horizon line here is not exactly straight.…
So, let's take a look at how we can use the Crop tool, to correct both of these …issues, in one easy process. I'll go ahead an choose the Crop tool …from the toolbox. That will apply an automatic crop box for …the image. That doesn't crop anything, it simply …matches the outer boundaries of the photo. …I'm going to start off by straining that crooked horizon because doing so will …apply a little bit of a crop to my image in any event. …
