Cropping is when you get rid of the extra junk around your image, such as we can …see here, there's extra parts that are just transparent. …But cropping is also about re-framing your image, and maybe telling a different story. …Focusing on a different element, if you will, in the composition. …So, I have here this toaster oven shot again. …We're going to get rid of this stuff. So, we're going to go down, fifth down …from the top in the tools panel, and we're going to choose the Crop tool. …As soon as we choose the Crop tool, we get this kind of bounding box around the …edges here. And all we have to do is click and drag …on one of the side points to trim away those pieces, and there's a new feature …in Photoshop CS6. It kind of recenters everything as you're scaling.…
If you don't like that, you can go up here to the Options bar and click this …little sprocket here. These are like the settings, and we could …just use Classic Mode, or we could Deselect Auto-center Preview. …But I'm just going to leave it as is for now. …
