crop tool stuck on 1 pixel

I CS5.1 my cropping tool will only produce a cropped image of 1 pixel square, no matter how I try to crop the image. I works normal in CS5
rebooting doesn't help. Lion 10.7.4
How can I fix this?

Egads! This is a dumb question, but when you have the crop tool selected, look at the tool info up top. There should be "width," "height," "resolution" and, on the right, a "clear" button. You likely have "1px" in the width and height fields and should be able to click on "clear" to revert back to the default Crop tool.

Failing that, trash the prefs (Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS5 Settings). Hope that helps.

I am running CS3 on this machine so it may be different with CS5.1.

The clear button fixed it! I never looked at that function,
I just always crop manually.

Thanks!

Hey no worries, it happens to all of us. I use the size features for things like client avatars and such so I can quickly get a huge logo down to a simple jpeg with a crop and a resize in one go. Then I always forget to clear it... ;)

hi,
i have the same problem but i am really struggling to find this reset tool,
i have read several forums and explanations as to where it is, but i just can not see it.

I am highlighting a cropped selection...

i can see the following:
info toolbar
navigation toolbar, histogram
as well as history, actions, brushes, clone source, top presets etc

and i can't do much with anyone of the above anyway, as things are like greyed out or unselectable and give me a beep.

i am using cs3 on a mac 10.5
thanks

Sorry but I have forgotten. however,I think I found it. open an image and select a crop. In the upper center you may see a counter clockwise arrow, and click it to reset. you have to have a the crop tool engaged in a crop but not completed. btw I'm on CS6.
You may also try the menu, window/workspace/reset ...
let me know if it works.

Dunno if you've seen this answer or not; I don't see it in the thread; the 1 stitch you seem to be missing is one I also missed at first:

In the CROP tool, the only time you see the option to CLEAR either "width" or "height" is when you first open the tool. Once you start dragging a marquis to set those params visually, that option goes away.

One more thing you may or may not already know; you can make those tool options (and all the pallets) appear and disappear by toggling the TAB key ...unless of course you happen to be in the type tool ... oooops... If you accidentally or otherwise made the tool options disappear, you can toggle them back again.

Just 1 more thought: there are no stupid questions.

Thanks for this comment. I never noticed the cropping toolbar.
