Crop Tool is Missing!

Hi, I have PS CS5.1 and my crop tool has vanished, and it is greyed-out in the Image drop-down list. How can I get it back.

    Hi Tami,

     

    Multiple tools share the same positions in the Tools panel.  Try pressing the C key several times.

     

    The menu entry will be grayed-out (disabled) unless you have a selection made.

    Hah!  I was going to suggest looking under your desk.  I find all sorts of stuff under mine.

    You're welcome, no worries.  Glad I could help.  I zone out from time to time too, just like Trevor.

    In the end, even little interludes like the above illustration become tedius, because you tend to draw on the same limited skill set, but I guess they have to be quick and easy, or you'd never get any work done. I do think I should dig out my Steve Caplin books and refresh my memory though.
