...is the crop tool in CS6. I feel like they had good intentions but like Sanchez running right into his own player then fumbling for a touchdown the other way..they did not accomplish their goal.

Holy Crap did they screw this one up!!

No resolution window, now in a drop down menu.
An option for a "classic mode" which is not actually the classic mode.
Can't always hit enter to crop, sometimes you can other times...

I could go on but I'm sure most of you have already been frustrated with it/read all the complaints abou it.

I crop my sports shots in ACR but was just going through some jpegs and discovered the crop tool's downgraded features. YIKES.

I just moved to CS6 a few weeks back and I am still trying to completely understand the crop tool. Maybe this thread will provide some insight or suggestions.

Couldn't agree more. I've been saying since CS6 was released that whoever was responsible for the redesign of the Crop tool is not a user of the program. Truly a step backward in usability. Abode is now just a huge tech company that only cares about the bottom line and signing up as many subscriptions they can.

If you use LIghtroom, you are more likely to appreciate the new crop tool in Photoshop CS6, since it was revised to work like the crop tool in LR.

Yeah, the crop tool doesn't bother me at all since it acts exactly like the one in Lightroom that I've been using for 3+ years. Once you get used to it, it's quite nice. If you're cropping to pixel dimensions, just use the rectangular selection tool and select Fixed Size. That works just the same as always.

So now we have two broken crop tools instead of just one.

I happen to prefer the new tool, especially when rotating images. YMMV, however.

As with most things in Photoshop, different strokes for different folks.

Yeah when I make a selection and want to set a resolution it takes forever to hit the "r" button. First ya got to find it, then pick what finger to use, then you have to press the right button what a big old pain in the ass.

I moved from LR into CS5 over a year ago. First time I tried to use the crop tool in Photoshop my first reaction was, "What the hell's this?"

Its newer cropping tool is way better.

My vote goes to the old crop tool. If I wanted this one I would use Lightroom.

Sarcasm will get you everywhere. The problem is also that there IS a size/resolution box right up there in the Options Bar, but it doesn't work the way it should. That you have to enter twice or at least once in the buried dialog is absurd. But that you can't use the Move Tool while you're in the Crop is ridiculous as well. Since I don't use Lightroom, well, I shouldn't say never, but I would only use it to output a problem child that didn't work in C1, I've never actually seen or used the Crop to in LR. That, in my mind, would be a huge negative, but I've only been using Photoshop since v2.5 in '94, so what do I know. I'm still learning - seriously.

I donít (and wonít) use LR, but I too prefer the new crop tool in CS6 to the previous one.

I don't have CS6, but I prefer LR's crop tool to the old photoshop style - it feels more precise to me. In fact if I load a photo in PS from LR, and see that it needs more cropping, I go back to LR instead of just cropping in Photoshop.
