Cropping is the process of removing portions of an image to create focus or strengthen the composition. Use the Crop tool to crop and straighten images in Photoshop. The Crop tools in Photoshop CC and CS6 are non-destructive and you can choose to retain the cropped pixels to optimize the crop boundaries later. The Crop tool also provides intuitive methods to straighten the image while cropping.
For all operations, visual guides provide an interactive preview. When you crop or straighten photos, real-time feedback helps you visualize the final result.
