To create a marquee, move the pointer over the image in the Preview window. The pointer becomes a set of cross-hairs. Hold down the mouse button and drag the cross-hairs over an area of the image, and then release the mouse button to create the marquee.
The frame around the marquee appears as a moving dotted line, indicating that it is active and can be resized.
The point where you first clicked is anchored, but the rest of the frame is sizable and movable.
When the mouse pointer is placed within the marquee (the
frame of the selected image area), it changes to a hand. You can click and drag
the marquee anywhere in the Preview window. If you drag the hand pointer while
pressing the Shift key, the marquee becomes restricted to only vertical
or horizontal movement.
When the mouse pointer is placed on the edge of the marquee, it changes to an arrow, allowing you to re-size the marquee. If you drag the arrow pointer while pressing the Shift key, the marquee is resized proportionally.
To remove or delete a marquee, click the marquee and then
click the Delete Marquee button.
