The CROP function is completely glitchy in Elements (quick or expert) on my HP laptop-360 envy. I have just downloaded Elements 2022 for the first time on this laptop. I have used the crop function for many years on a desktop with no issues.
When I try to crop, dragging the corner function does not create a cropped image as I wish...it sort of bounces around and will settle on what it wants. Even IF I click green check mark to take the crop, it will often then produce a cropped image MUCH smaller than what I had clicked "yes" to....CRAZY!
I have tried rebooting, clicking "reset" in bottom right corner when on the crop screen, changing unchecking and then rechecking "unable crop reselection" in "preferences - general" - may work once or twice after changing something - but then goes right back to unusable. I have also checked "reset preferences on next launch" and rebooted. Whatever I do, it may work once or twice, and it keeps glitching!
PLEASE help me!!! Really need this to work ASAP! (I have tried Marquee tool and then crop - but find it clunky and I have tried cropping in the organizer, but I do not want multiple images--I want to just crop and save one image--such a pain to have to delete original image.) I have 7,000 images to review/edit from 3 weeks in Africa.
ANY ideas greatly appreciated!!! About to trash this software!!
