Just purchased the Production Suite, the crop tool in CS6 lags and has yet to work on a photo res of 72, 4.14m in size just for kicks I let it run as I made my morning coffee, I had to cancel. when saving it saves in dcm, eps formats to name a few, I tried them all and will not save to jpg format. I download my copy from adobe web site. I got the recommended updates, still having problems.

You cropped while preserving pixels - which means you have a layered image, and data outside the document bounds.

That won't save directly in JPEG, because JPEG cannot support layers or data outside the document bounds.

You can do a Save As, and then save a copy of the document as JPEG.

Hello Chris thanks for your speedy reply. The perspective crop tool works fine (instantly) but regular crop tool opens a little progress window with a blue progress bar that shows no movement or after five minutes or so very little movement it's been running now for aprox. 10 min and did finally crop my image but when done, opened the image to 100%... when I do save as jpeg it tries to use a .dcm extension, I find my .jpg extension under Multi - Picture Format did Adobe change this or am I going nuts?

Check the resolution value - you're probably resampling to a huge document.

And also see the topic about copying obsolete plugins on MacOS.

I just figured out a solution. On the top menu bar be sure the box marked delete cropped pixels is checked. After that do a save as command unchecked the layers box found at bottom of dialog box. After that save image. Next time you save an image sound save as JPEG
