how do I set the crop tool to maintain proportions (photo ratio)? I know how to set actual dimensions, but old PS let me choose a ratio rather than firm measurements. Where can I do that in PS5 now?

Do you have Elements 5.0 or Photoshop CS5?

Just enter the measurements and leave the resolution field empty to avoid resampling.
