crop to selection problem
hello comunity,

i m dealing with a problem that seems kinda dump on first site. i hope i just miss something.
on my way to crop my image, i make my selection with the fuzzy selection tool, choose select--> invert to choose my selection, and then i choose "crop to selection" through image or through layer menu. nothing happens though to my image. i only get a new "crop image" action at the history menu. my selection remains uncroped though.
any ideas?

Hi and welcome.

Not quite sure. why you are choosing Select->Invert once you have created a selection with the Fuzzy select tool.
Try Cropping to Selection without doing the Select->Invert.
If that still does not achieve the result you are looking for, attach your .xcf file for further investigations.

I cannot see your attachment yet.
Please try and attach your .xcf again. Wink
(Locate your post. Choose the Edit button (Full Edit))
Scroll down to the New Attachment.
Browse to locate your .xcf.
Choose Add Attachment button.

RE: crop to selection problem
i make my selection using the fuzzy select tool, cause i dont want to have a rectangle for my final image.
-i try to attach my xcf file, but cannot make it work..(i find my file through the "browse" button and then i press the add attachment to the right. the web browser loads, and after a while it just reloads the page with no file attached)-
so i wanted to have my objects outline cropped to its limits..

it let me upload the png file though..
so, my goal is to select the yellowish card on which my logo is printed. so the final shape would be like a rectangle with rounded edges..
