    You pick a point and drag the cursor to the opposite corner (a dotted rectangle will be drawn while doing this). When the box is there look in the edit? menu for crop.

    In Irfanview, simply draw a rectangle around the part that you want, then do into the Edit menu, and select Crop Selection.

    Use Picsa from Google , free download. I prefer it over my Canon software. Click export to resize, set it to 800 and it sends it to a new folder Picsa Exports. It's so easy to use. cropping, re touching, etc. too!
