I cropped away 3/4 of the image to zero in on the caterpillar. Your camera makes a nice big image that takes cropping better than do images from many other cameras.

thanks for cropping
I was wondering if you could tell me how you cropped it because I have no idea how to do it. I would really appreciate it.

Cropping images
Hi Wendy,
What software do you use for processing images in your computer? Many, if not most image-editing & photo processing software packages include a cropping tool, but my telling you about cropping in Adobe Photoshop, Mac Preview, or Canon's File Viewer, won't help so much if you need specific instructions for the program(s) you have access to.

I agree
Yes, Caroline's right, it all depends on what software you use. Try going into the Help files in your image software and search on "Crop." It is just a matter of selecting the area of the picture you want and then choosing the command "Crop."
