    Image disappears when cropping

      When I try to crop an image by dragging the handles with the Direct Selection tool, the bounding box turns grey and obscures the image. I'm not sure how to appropriately crop an image I can't see. I am using Windows X.

          Image cropping is normally done with the regular Selection tool (black arrow) dragging one of the frame sizing handles, not the Direct Select tool (white arrow). You would use the Direct Select tool only to change the shape of the frame, being careful to select the frame itself, not the image inside it, otherwise using the Direct Select tool would change the shape of the image, not crop it.
