I have looked under the crop tool and ALL the other tools and nada. So have i got a bogus piece of junk?? without it PS 5.5 and 6.0 are useless. yes I have the extended versions of both. why spend all that money to do nothing I need.
have you looked here? your slice tool will be here....
Toggle between Slice tool and Slice Selection tool
Draw square slice
Draw from center outward
Draw square slice from center outward
Shift + Alt-drag
Shift + Option-drag
Reposition slice while creating slice
Open context-sensitive menu
Now it would be good if you'd click and hold on your Crop Tool position, grab your screen, and show what's there.
Assuming the Slice Tool is not there, are you sure you have a legitimate copy of Photoshop? Did you get it from Adobe.com?
