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.

Redicilous. How do you respectfully say what you thing abut Adobe not being able to make the BASICS function in a user friendly way at all? Do not add more features that nobody use, before making the basics accessable !!

Tried active selection. Tried everything. "Crop" in pulldown list is still grey. Spend hours on this now instead of getting anything done ! THANKS ADOBE. So I am not allowed to say that photoshop is a bloated mess?

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.

i have found in illustrator especially you cannot crop groups or vectors, first i have to rasterize the group with a transparent background so that it becomes a solid image then the crop option is available. See if that works for you
