Photoshop CS3. I have an image on the screen. I want to crop a piece of that image and save that cropped image to a new file *without* closing or disturbing the original image. Is this possible?

No, but you could cut, or copy that section and create a new document to paste it into.

Hello, you can also go to image>duplicate, work on that copy, crop it, and save it.
