    I think Im missing something simple here.
    When I try to manually crop an image using the crop tool, instead of it letting me select the area, as I drag across horizontally, the tool also automatically drags vertically, so that I end up with a square to crop.
    Ive not explained this very well, but I hope somebody understands what I mean.

    How can I reset the tool so that I can manually select the area to crop.

    Sorted!!

    When the tool is selected, an icon is placed on the top toolbar at the right, if this is clicked it gives a tool menu. But if it is right clicked, it gives the option to reset the current tool, after the tool had been reset, it defaulted back to manual mode.:D

    Thanks for your help and time wilson44512, I didnt get time to read your post before I found an answer to this prob, so couldnt try your solution.
