I was going to ask "how to crop a circle" but thought that might attract any lurking UFO nuts out there... ;-)

How do you crop a circular image in PS-CS? There's the elliptical marquee tool, but even when setting a fixed size of equal width and depth, the crop seems, well, elliptical.

How should I do this?

Hold shift down with the circular marquee tool as you select an area - to constrain proportions to identical values (x/y). then use apple + i (or ctrl + i) to select inverse - hit delete. :)

Thanks for that. I tried it out and you know what? It worked :-)

What it also showed me is that the method I was using previously actually worked, too (elliptical marquee tool - apply the same measurements for x/y in fixed size). The problem is actually with the materials I'm working with.

I've been scanning and cropping record labels (vinyl 45's) and you'd think that these are circular. Seems that they aren't. Well, the ones I've got obviously aren't!
