Illustrator 10 Crop Photo Problem

Hi, Just wondering if anyone knows how to crop photos in Illustrator 10. I've tried using the crop pathfinder without any luck. Thanks for any help : )

Draw a box or shape on top of your photo at the size you want to crop it (set the fill and stroke to none so you can see what's going on).

Select both your photo and shape and go to menu Object > Mask > Make.

If you want to adjust the size/location of the mask, you can do so by grabbing and moving points with the white arrow selection tool.

Thanks for the tip! That seemed to work. Now, is there anyway to isolate just the clipped graphic and get rid of the outlines of the two original shapes?
