You know like in iPhoto where you can select a specific area to crop? That's what I want to do.

Just need to get rid of the (some of it..) sky in a couple pictures

Gracias,

The crop frame in Lightroom is very adjustable and you can save Custom crop ratios for future use. Keep in mind that Lightroom uses ratios not sizes as they are determined when a file is printed or exported.

If you have ever used iPhoto, you can select the specfic area that you want to crop.

That is what I am looking for, not what you are talking about.

When you are in the Crop tab - click the padlock icon so that it shows as unlocked. Then you can move and size the crop area any way you wish.
