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?
QUOTE Thanks

Click and drag a selection area that you want to crop, then choose crop from the menu.

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.
