Step 3: Drag the white horizontal / vertical selectors to crop your image.

Pro Tip:

As you move the cropping selectors around, you'll see a black box pop-up around your cursor with the new dimensions of the cropped layer.

Step 4: Double-click on the layer to see the full image, and the areas you’ve cropped. Grab the adjustment handles on the edge of the image and pull them around to move the cropped area. This gives you an idea of what the image will look like after it’s been cropped.

Step 6: You'll also see options for "Fit to Frame" and "Fit to Image". The former will fit the image into the parameters of the frame, while the latter will move the frame to the outer dimensions of the image even if its already been cropped.

Step 8: Click the blue checkmark to apply the effect, or you can X out to start over.
