Default Cropping an Image multiple times?

I know there's a way to crop an image multiple times,all at the same time in CS3. I just can't think of how. Help please.

If you are trying to crop out multiple images from one original just make a copy before cropping.

No just trying to crop out multiple different sections of a photo.I've seen it done on a video but can't find it.

OK guys and girls,I know there is a simple way to use the crop tool on one image and crop several areas of the image and hit crop and it's done. All the areas you selected with the crop tool have disappeared and the rest of the image remains.

Just saw this thread, and while I don't use Adobe software, I can tell you how I would do it in Photoimpact. Technique should be similar. Start with Selection tool and select the first bit you want to crop (in or out doesn't matter now). Change the tool attribute to 'add' (or '+') and select subsequent bits. Click the 'crop' button and you have the selected parts on a white field, or use 'invert selection' first, and have the main picture with selected parts gone.

G'day G1

Extremely easy mate - and any software will do it

1- [as with all photo edit activity], choose File > Duplicate Image for safety

2- take image, crop it as you require, goto File > Save-As etc etc
3- most important.... now do Ctrl-Z to undo crop & return image to original state on the screen
4- do your 2nd crop, 3rd crop, 4th crop, repeat steps 2- & 3- as many times as is needed

Regards, Phil
