Cropping images in Photoshop

If you're not satisfied with the crop you made with you camera or just want to get rid of some part of the picture, no biggie,  you can custom crop it.

1.
 

Open the picture you want to crop in Photoshop.

I opened a picture I took on a Downhill bike rice and I decided to get rid of the intruder on the right side of my picture.

 
 
2.
 

Choose the Crop Tool (see picture).

 
 
3.
 

Just draw a square over the picture.

It doesn't have to be the size of the crop you want to make, just draw a random square, we will fine tune it in the next step.

 
 
4.
 

When you let go of the mouse button a grid of thirds appears.

Now fine tune your crop by clicking and dragging the little squares around the grid.

The darker part is the part you're getting rid of.

Press ENTER when you're done with fine tuning.

 
 
5.
 

And here's my intruder-free picture!
