View Full Version : q: deleting unselectable areas

02 February 2003, 03:50 PM

Is there a way to delete the pixel-information in the areas outside the image's border? Specifically I've dragged in 10 or so layers that are much (much) larger than the image itself, and it's kind of.. ah.. silly, to have all of that information floating around out there. Takes forever to save too :)

Anyway, I've done some searching in the helpfile and in this forum, and nothing much seemed to turn up so if anyone could jump in and point me in the right direction that'd be pretty damn cool.

This is using Photoshop 6.0 btw.

..though, hm, if it happens it's some fancy 7.0 feature maybe I could use it as leverage to get us upgraded... :rolleyes:

Ah, someone at work pointed out that I could just select the whole image (ctrl-A), then do a crop, and voila, no more unused information floating around outside the borders. So ah.. nevermind.. :)

Use the crop tool, simple and do exactly what you want (shortcut = c)

See Ya!
