Red face Answered: How in the world do I crop a picture in paint?

Ok, this may sound like a really stupid question, but how do you crop a picture in paint? (I'm taking screen shots of WI and I need to crop certain parts out)

I know how to do it on our Vista computer, but the XP (which I'm using right now) is different. Normally, I would select the cropping tool, put it around my desired area, and right-click "Crop", but when I do that on the XP, "Crop" doens't come up when I right-click...


ANY help is GREATLY appreciated! I've been trying to get pictures for my new guide ---> http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...g-pics-529397/, but this has been slowing me down.... Oh, and I know that I could just upload the pictures to lunapic or picnik, but of course, I'm wayyyy to lazy to do that...

Ok - just clicked help DotDot Duck and this is what i get



To change the size of your picture
  1. On the Image menu, click Attributes.
  2. Under Units, click the unit of measurement you want to use for the width and height.
  3. Type the measurements in Width and Height.
Notes
  • You can also resize your picture by dragging the image resize handles, located at the lower-right corner and along the bottom and right sides of your picture. (You might need to maximize the window to see the square resize handles.)
  • If your current picture is bigger than the new size, the picture is cut from the right side and bottom to fit within the smaller area. If your current picture is smaller than the new size, the extra area is filled with the selected background color.
*******Update************
Ok this works, but it is kind of hard and clumsy - you will need lots of trial and error to get good at this way of doing it.
