Nice work Patricia.

To crop you need edit it in your image editing software. Paint, Paint.Net, Photoshop, Gimp etc.

After it is loaded, you use the selection tool to draw a rectagle around the bit you want to keep and then, depending on which program you use you use the menu or a button to crop (eg Photoshop it is Image>Crop). Just check your program's help.

Photoshop also has a Crop tool that you draw the rectangle and can move it around, then crop when finally ready.

MS Paint (Win 7 Version) it is just a case of using the selection tool to draw around the part you want to keep then click on the button on the toolbar, straight under the View menu there is a button for Select then to the right the top button is Crop.

The Crop tool always looks like two Ls. Like the cardboard Ls you use as a viewfinder - the ones you slide back and forth when trying to frame a view to draw or paint.

I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

 :thankyou:  Batman, thank you so much for walking me through the "cropping" exercise but this computer business is like speaking another language to me. When I left the work force, computers were just coming in and the little I know, I have had to teach myself through trial and error. However, I have copied your instructions and will give it a go.  I had a problem downloading the photographs into my Gallery and then I remembered Ray saying that I have to reduce them in size and told me what to do with "Power Toys for Windows XP" and I was quite proud of myself for being able to do it!  Anyway, I will see what program I have on this computer ... it may be Photoshop. Thanks so much for your help which is much appreciated.  Patricia
