Looking into the Crop Tool in Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 this week. Wow! It does a lot more than I thought. In this post I’ll be focused on the ability to toggle between creating destructive crops or nondestructive crops.
In a destructive crop, you are permanently deleting pixels from your document. In a nondestructive crop, you are changing the size of the image but the layer information is retained.
Check out the video above to see how it all works. I’ll walk you through a quick crop process using both techniques.
Once you have the Crop Tool activated, you’ll see the Control Panel change. This is where you can choose destructive or nondestructive cropping. Pressing this button down will produce a destructive crop. When the button is depressed, you will produce a nondestructive crop.
