Clearing a crop
A reader writes in to ask about an cropped image. He was having trouble finding out how to restore an image that he'd cropped in ACR. Aside from right-clicking on the image and choosing Develop Settings>Clear Settings - which clears everything ... the reader just wanted to clear the crop.
Click and hold the Crop tool and you'll find a hidden menu. Remember, whenever you see the downward pointing triangle, that's Photoshop's way of saying that there's a menu hidden under the button. At the bottom of the Crop tool's hidden menu, you'll find Clear Crop.
Clearing it using the Crop tool's menu preserves any adjustments that you've made - unlike Clear Settings.
