Description: Featured as a Daily Deviation over a year ago, this tutorial about the crop and measurement tool certainly deserves attention. As ^znow-white puts it :
"If you lack a tripod sometimes you will find that your photos may turn out a little crooked. This will teach you how incredibly easy it is to straighten them, while and at the same time making the best of your composition."

You explain application of crop very beautifully. I have seen many people using a method of Crop, which I never get to discover. They make a selection and than with the help of some shortcut key they crop that area. Many times I needed that method but I am always failed to find that shortcut key anywhere, nor the people I saw working this.
After a bit of Googling I came to this conclusion: that there are no default shortcut to cropping a selection. Instead, after making your selection, you have to go to Image->Crop.
You can, of course, define your own shortcuts. Press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+K (two hands required), press Image and find Crop on the list that appears. This will let you set a custom shortkey that you can use later
Wow, thanks for doing all that. I never look Crop under Image, I guess instead of defining my own shortcut key I (and all others) can do just Alt I followed by C, that will be fast and free to use any where else.
