          Assuming you didn't have the [  ] Delete Cropped Pixels setting checked, just run the crop tool and make the crop bigger again.

           

          Also you can do Image - Reveal All.

            Or use the History panel to go back to a point before you cropped it.

             

            ....unless you had it set to delete hiden pixels and have closed the image since then?

              I  knew there had to be a way of recovering it even after crop and save if it was truly non-destructive. Another clue is that when you crop with delete pixels unchecked, Background changes to Layer0. So I was looking around Smart Object for the answer.

               

              Good! I can save disk space by not having cropped and uncropped versions. It would be nice to have multiple crops to choose as well so that I could do several crop versions and then select the one I want to use, all on the same file.

               

              That goes to the wish list, I suppose.

               

              Thanks, Trevor and Noel.

                In the document, you can save several rectangular paths which represent the crops. When you want one of the crops:

                 

                1. Target the path in the Paths panel.

                2. Click the "Load path as a selection" button at the bottom of the panel.

                3. Press C to activate the Crop Tool which, in CS6, is automatically snapped to the rectangular selection.

                 

                You could record steps 2 and 3 as an Action and assign a Fn key for future use.
