If you want to rotate it at some angle other than 180 or 90 degrees, select the arbitrary option. CROPPING Cropping your photo is really simple; all you need to do is select the crop tool from the tool bar on the left side of your screen. It looks like this. Use this tool to select the portion of your image that you wish to keep. Click and drag until you have a highlighted area. You can move this box around or make it larger or smaller by using the arrow cursor that appears when hovering in the corners. The highlighted area is the part of the photo you will be keeping, anything grayed will be removed. (See below) 4
  • Quick Tips for Scanning/Editing Using Adobe Photoshop CS3 Once you have selected the part of the photo that you wish to keep, click the crop button in the toolbar again, a box will appear. Click Crop and the grayed area will be removed. Cancel allows you to adjust the selected portion, and Don't Crop will return your workspace to how it was before you open the Crop tool. If you crop and change your mind go to EditUndo Crop, or press Ctrl + Z on the keyboard. RE-SIZING To resize your photo, select ImageImage Size. This box will appear. Make sure Constrain Proportions is checked, unless you want to skew your image. By changing the number in the Width box below Pixel Dimensions, it will automatically reformat the Height and keep the portions of your photo correct. You can also change the size of the document by changing the number in the Width box below Document Size. By resizing your photo this way it will not look distorted. REMOVING RED EYE Select the Red Eye Removal tool. It is the seventh tool from the top and can be found by right clicking the Spot Healing Brush tool. Click in the red eye, and if the results are incorrect, undo, and try again or change the options. It may be helpful to zoom in so you can be more precise when selecting the eye. Pupil Size increases or decreases the area that will be affected. Darken Amount sets the darkness of the correction. CONVERTING TO Go to ImageAdjustmentsBlack and White and click OK.

Now you can click the portion of the image you are trying to hide, in this case the eye. Note: This works best when you are trying to remove a small portion, otherwise you may need to change clone selections so that the colors will still blend correctly and it won’t look out of place. ADJUSTING COLOR If you want to get a little creative with your photos, you might want to try adjusting the color levels. Lets adjust the goldfish. Go to ImageAdjustmentsColor Balance. 6
