Hi folks, can anyone advise how to change (what I think are) the annoying thick/fat handles and corners on the crop tool post the 2020 update ? I've posted a picture below of what I mean.

What I'm referring to is the fact that the thick handles/corners mean you can't make fine adjustments less than the thickness of the handles when using the corner or middle of the four sides as your refernce for the crop.

 

Many thanks in advance

Try using the rectangular selection tool instead.

Hi Bob, thanks for your suggestion but I'm at a complete loss how using the rectangular selction tool allows me to crop the whole file (all layers etc) in the same the Crop tool would ?

Make the selection, select  > inverse, and delete.

Are you using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements?

Hello, Photoshop 22; that has just been released today, does have fix the large crop handles as seen in its fixed issues list https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/fixed-issues.html#photoshop-desktop-fixed-issues 

I recommend to install it while keeping the older version installed, as explained in: https://helpx.adobe.com/be_en/download-install/using/install-previous-version.html

 

If you are not seeing it, go to help>check for updates in your CC application.
