Replacing crop handles

Hi all,

I'm new here and in learning to use the picture cropping tools I inadvertantly removed 5 of the crop handles in the crop selection box. For the life of me I can't seem to figure out how to put them back. There must be some kind of crop preferences but so far I can't find it. Does somebody out there know how to put them back? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

 

                                                                     Thanks, Dave

    Welcome David, bur are you sure you are in the correct Forum.

    Perhaps you wanted the Photoshop or Fireworks groups?

    Sorry Guy -

     

    My older version has no such feature.

    Others will come along with your answer

    What do you mean by "removed 5 of the handles"?

     

    Can you post a screenshot?

    You mean Dreamweaver CS5?

    Hi -

     

    Assuming these handles are for forcing HTML resize of image, (not a good idea)

    why not just ascertain the actual image size and enter in code view.

    Hopefully those days are behind us, Ken.

     

    The lightweight image editing tools in DW are stripped down Fireworks tools which properly edit images (not just via HTML parameters in the code).

    Been there since MX 2004.

     

    Which version are you running?

    Hard to say without seeing the code. Is the image inside a div?

     

    I suspect the handles are there but perhaps hidden.

     

    Can you do the editing/cropping you need with the 3 handles you can see?

     

    PS best way to take a screenshot is to press the Print Screen (PrtScr) key on your keyboard.

    Hi Dave -

    As mentioned, I don't have your version.

    Have you tried removing and re-inserting your image to see if all your handles return ?

    Hi,

    I'm still at it. Anyone have any ideas?

                                                          Thanks, Dave

     

     

     

    The image itself has only ever had the 3 handles as your image shows. Its the crop area that has the 8 handles. Draw a crop area over the image and you should get the 8 handles.
