    I am using PSP 18 but seem not to have other options than the “Thirds” on my crop tool. Where can I adjust settings to correct it?

      Hello Hanlie,

      Are you using the Essentials or Complete workspace? The first thing to try would be switching to the Complete workspace using the File > Workspace option, as some of the more advanced options and features are hidden in Essentials view in order to reduce clutter and make for a simpler, more streamlined experience.

    I love all the new features for the crop tool. It would have taken me a while before I noticed them. Thanks for the tutorial.
