I am trying to crop an image in Photoshop (PC) into a hexagon. When I select Polygon Tool from the lefthand tool menu, it only offers me a choice of 5 Point White Star or Red Star as options.I do not see how to select a simply hexagon as an option. Any help is much apprecited.

Thanks all. It look like Adobe changed the UI from a check box and a percentage to a just a ratio percent. Where 100% is equal to an un-checked star box. For anyone else with the same issue.

Disable "Star" in the settings (shows as gear) in the Control Bar when the Polygon Tool is active. And change the amount of "Sides" from 5 to 6.

That's all.

To clarify, while you can use a hexagon to mask an image, you cannot Crop an image into a hexagon. All images are rectangles.
