    Difficulty cropping

    graph22 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to use the rect marquee tool to do a selection and then crop a photo but when I do nothing happens.

       

      A couple of strange things have/are happening:

       

      -At one point, while I was in transform selection I there was added space around the marquee, which became the new edge, as opposed to the marquee itself.

       

      -The marquee is in the shape of a rounded rectangle.

       

      Any idea what's going on/how to fix this?

       

      Thanks!

          Did you feather, that would give you a rounded rectangle from a rectangle?

           

          What happens with a soft slection is the marquee goes roughly around the centere of your selection, but using crop goes to the outere edge adn can oftne look like nohting is happening cause the outer edge ofthe soft selection may be past the edge of your document

            Can you post screen captures of the above two.

             

            Transform Selection should display the transform bounding box with the 8 control points and a ninth control point in the center.

             

            A rounded corner selection sounds like feathering
