All right, now that we have got this worked out, now we know what is inside the boundary and what is outside the boundary, we have no doubt about that. First thing we really need to do is rotate this crop boundary. So, it even sort of matches the angle of the image.
Well, here is how we do it. Notice if you move your cursor outside the crop boundary. It changes to this little sort of bi-directional arrow thing. Now, drag outside the crop boundary and see how the angle of the crop boundary changes. Now, I am going to move the crop boundary by dragging inside of it to see if I have got the right angle set up. Looks pretty darn good. I might drag outside a little more just to see subtlely adjust it. Once I have got the angles set up the way I want it, now I can scale the crop boundary by dragging a corner handle. Then I can drag one of the side handles or the top or bottom handle. In order to get this pretty well lined up with the outside edges of the image. And this is about the area that I want to crop like we are seeing right now. So get your crop boundary more or less like you see it on screen here like the way I have it. Now, I should mention that the perspective check box has to be turned off in order to scale the crop boundary by dragging the side handles. So, if you are having problems scaling the crop boundary it is because perspective is turned on. Just go ahead and turn it off.
We will come back to what the perspective check box does in just a moment. Alright, once your crop boundary looks more or less like this, I want you to go up to the right side of the options bar and click on the check mark. Or you can press the “Enter” or “Return” key on the keyboard. Any of those options clicking the check box or pressing enter or return actually goes ahead in implements that crop. So, it not only crops the area of the image, it gets rid of the stuff outside the mark key but it also ahead and rotates the image as well.
