Can't crop an image "live" on the canvas while I'm working on a composition??

This is driving me crazy... when I'm working on a layout using different assets (text, photos, other assets) I can't figure out how to crop a photo to the size I want after I drop it into the canvas. I swear I was able to do that before, but the only thing I see now is "resize" and it wants to resize the whole canvas.... I've resorted to exiting what I'm working on, opening a square canvas (or whatever aspect ratio I need the photo to be), bringing the photo in, saving that as a new file, then going back into the canvas to drop the newly created cropped photo in. This can't be right...

Hello Rachel, the Crop tool is in the left-hand panel. When you have an image selected you should see it.

Apparently you can only crop Adobe Stock photos? What if we want to use our own images?!!!!

You  should be able to crop your own photos. Here I uploaded an unedited jpg from my computer, and Crop was available as an option. I'm using the chrome browser on desktop. What are you using?

Thanks for your reply. I later found that I can if I upload it directly to the canvas. But I cannot do much of anything with images I have saved in "Your stuff".

I had gone through a lot of folders on my computer and uploaded them, then found I cound't crop them or create a collage with them. Super frustrating!
