If you want to keep only a portion of an image and you want to cut the rest of the image away then you can use the cropping tool.
The cropping tool is the fifth button down on your Photoshop tool box, go ahead and click on it. And if you put your mouse over your image you are going to get the crop symbol. Let me go ahead and zoom up on this a little bit and I want to crop out my sunflowers out of the rest of this picture. So I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to click about where I want the crop to begin and then I’m going to scroll down, I’m going to pull down and I am selecting the area I want to keep. Got to go ahead and let go. And the area that is the normal color is what’s going to be cropped. The rest of it, the darker is going to be thrown away.
Now, I have a couple options here, you could see I didn’t get it quite precise which is fine. One thing that you could do is you can click anywhere inside this selection and you can move it and this is going to move the crop. And I actually got the top fit in here with my bottom petals still fitting in. You can also click on your size and angles and you can resize the crop. So I can make it smaller, I can make it a little larger if I want, so I can get it exactly right.
Another option I have is that I can rotate this if needed. If I put my mouse outside of the selection I have these rotation arrows. I could click and then I can rotate it whichever way I want to get the rotation that I like. And if I want to change the center of the image which really only will depend on how I rotate it I could go ahead and move this to another location and then when I rotate it it’s going to rotate it based on that point because it believes that is the center of the image. So let me go ahead and rotate it back.
Now, if you want to cancel this crop you could go ahead and press the ESC key on your keyboard. If you’d like to keep it the way it is then go ahead and on your keyboard press your ENTER key and it’s going to go ahead and crop. You could see I just have my sunflowers now and it’s cut away the rest of my picture.
