I'd appreciate it muchly if someone could instruction me in the use of Photoshop Elements. In particular, I'd like to know how to crop pictures. Thanks in advance.

Elements 9?

Like, when you click the icon, a rectangle should pop up. Two big buttons should say Organize and Edit. Click Edit. That should take a a Paint page where you can edit the picture you choose. Select the crop tool, and go from there. If there is no crop tool, a cropping mechanism should be in the toolbar somewhere.

Plus this question should probably be in the Forums...

Thanks, Shiney. And it's 8.0- hopefully not too different.

I use picnik.com. To use it for free just click "start picniking" in the top right hand corner. Or I think a shorter way is to go straight to picnik.com/app. That'll bring you straight to a place to do simple editing like resizing and cropping. You can also click on create so you can kinda just mess with the picture! I know this is way more than to asked for but I use picnik all the time and I love it! It's really cool to just play with a random picture! So why not just give you the rest of the info?!

I had Elements 8; and never really like it for basic editing. I prefer Google's Picasa for that.
But for more stuff, I use Photoshop CS4 or Photoshop 7. I'm more comfy with that.
