Photoshop: Unable to Crop correctly using the Crop tool

Recently I bought photoshop cs5, but it won't let me crop anything. I'm not sure if it's a bug in the program, whether the software I received is faulty, or if I re-install photoshop would that solve the problem?

How is is preventing you from cropping? You really didn't provide much information about what you're seeing and what is happening on your system.

Hello and thank you! when I finish cropping the file where I want it to be, I press enter and it goes incredibly tiny - maybe 1/4 inch square.

Look in the options bar for the crop tool -- you forgot a value in there, like the resolution. Worst case, just reset the crop tool.

Cuando utilizo la herramienta "Recortar" en mi Mac, Photoshop CS5 deja la nueva imagen en un solo pixel.

THANK you !!
I had similar difficulty! cropping any images regardless of size or os resolution would lock photoshop!

I called Adobe costumer service, we reset the whole software, uninstall, installed and was about to call a technician

It took me seconds to solve the problem with this instructions, almost ridicule the amount of tie and stress with Adobe customer service used before

THANK you

Here the common mistake is we normally avoid the activities which were created earlier.  Check them out... https://www.thoughtco.com/crop-tool-stuck-in-fixed-shape-1700222
