  • When the mouse pointer is placed in the Preview window, it changes to a cross-hairs. Drag the cross-hairs over any area of the image, and a frame appears. 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 a hand while pressing the Shift key, the marquee will be limited to 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 an arrow while pressing the Shift key, the marquee will be resized proportionally.

  • To remove or delete a marquee, double-click the preview window.
