    Cropping In Preview
    Hey guys,

    I wanted to crop a picture of mine, and I know you can do that with iPhoto. But then I noticed the "Crop" option under Tools, but it is grey-ed out and I cannot click on it at all - why is that?

    I think it'd be much easier for me if I can crop a picture straight out of Preview. Why have an option for something when you can't do it?

    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 9.7, AppleTV (4)
    Click and drag a selection area that you want to crop, then choose crop from the menu.

    Specs:
    iBook G3 - You'll be missed.
    Once you have the area selected you can also hit Command + K on the keyboard and it'll to the same thing, faster than going up to the menu.
