When i cropped a photo, it created a new layer and I could only save as a psd document unless i went in and flattened the layers. i watched a lynda video that told me how to reset my preferences and she suggested I zip the old preferences and send them to you. how do I send them to you?

There is no need to reset preferences. Either flatten the image, or change the crop tool not to preserve layer data.

Change the option in the crop tool options bar.
