Holy Crop!

Maybe it’s just me, but I like to have my working canvas fit to size on my computer screen. It’s easy to do that by using the shortcut command/control zero {as in the number 0}. But sometimes if the layer selected is larger then my canvas, it makes the sizing a bit off. Take the template I am working on below. The brown pieces are a lot larger then my 12×12 canvas. I could leave it like that, but it would make for one extra large file. Plus, it bugs me. Thank goodness there is an easy way to crop it to fit my canvas!

First, make sure you have the layer you want to crop selected. Then hit command/control A to select your whole canvas. Make your way up to the menu bar, then navigate to Image->Crop. And that’s it! Your layer will be cropped perfectly to fit your canvas!
