The last post about cropping got me thinking about this question, I didn't want hijack that thread so I'm starting a new one.
Many times I would like to make a rectangular selection to the height and width that I specify. As a example, lets say I want a 8x12 rectangular selection box, is there a way to do this in CS5?
The way I'm doing that now is to watch the ruler as I pull out the selection, but trying to hit 8x12 this way is, well, hit or miss. No matter how close I try, I never get exactly 8x12 this way.
I've tried using the crop tool, but its the same thing, you still have to pull out the selection.
