On photoshop cs5, I am having problems of the Crop tool being grayed out under the Image tab. Also the icon is hidden in the tools panel. Is anyone having this same problem in CS5?

For command crop in the image menu to work, you either need an active selection or

have draw out the crop with the crop tool, but not have commited the crop.

The crop tool in the toolbox is different from the crop command in the image menu.

You could either use the crop tool in the toolbox to crop an image or make a selection

with the Rectangular marquee tool and then use the crop command in the image menu.

Or ... simply Ctrl+LMB the image icon in the layers panel to select it, then select 'Image --> Crop' from the menu.

On the tools panel, you will note a VERY small black triangle on the next to the knife too (right bottom corner of button).

It will expand a fly out, from which you can select the crop tool to be revelaed and active.
