To resize your selection drag one of the little handles on the sides and corners

They look like little squares as shown in Figure 10-11 . You can drag in any direction, so you can also change the proportions of your crop if you want to.

3. If you change your mind, click Cancel (the "no" symbol) on the photo, or press the Esc key .

That undoes the selection so you can start over or switch to another tool if you decide you don't want to crop after all.

Figure 10-11. If you want to change your selection from horizontal to vertical, or vice versa, then just move your cursor outside the cropped area and you'll see the rotation arrows (circled). Grab and rotate them, the same way you would an entire photo. Changing your selection doesn't rotate your photojust the boundaries of the crop. When you're done, press Enter to tell Elements you're satisfied.
