After you crop your image, do a save. Select all and copy. Open a new doc. (C-new and paste into, C/V)
It was explained before. Good luck with Photoshop. The learning curves are endless.

I don't think so Kevin.

If you save the image after it is cropped, you will lose the original image. I'm not sure that is what this person wanted to do.

I could be wrong. I frequently am.

Kiddpeat, Yes, you will loose the original image that was uncropped. Who wants the original image that takes up extra pixle space and memory.
Not me. Always crop the canvas size down as close as you can to the image area for all Photoshop documents. (Takes up less memory and the size of the document.)

The original poster said he/she wants a section of the image

I'm thinking he/she wants a composite made up of 'sections' of other images rather than destroying the original image.

Kiddpeat, I wish I knew exactly what the original poster really wants to do. The best way is to do a save-as amd keep the original file. That way if she destroys the copy you always have the original file and to try again.
It's like money in the bank sort of thing.

Thanks, Kiddpeat,

you can just save it under another name, and now you have to images, or you can just create the new document and drag the layer with the cropped image over...

Well?

marcelomdsc, All sorts of ways to copy, crop and paste into a new doc. If anyone is unsure, my recommendation is to play around with a file image that is saved as a test or something like that.
Try everything that you want to do and experiment.
Tutorials are very good also.
Check out www.worth1000.com Awesome work. You will not believe the talent there. The best in the world!
The talent there just leaves me in awe!

Do not crop!

Steve_the_pirate, Do not crop at all. Select the image area that you want with the marqui selection tool. Copy and paste that image into a new document that you have set up with layers that you want to work with. You can also swap layers in Photoshop and move the images where you want. Want them to blend into each other? Choose image/Multiply and using curves you can adjust the image lighter or darker as your want.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
