Which program are you/did your son use?

Yes it is the 'crop' tool you use. But please make a copy of the photo and work on that so as to preserve the original in case of mistakes.

Not to worry it works ok for me but maybe they were not what you were looking for anyway.

I find Picassa very easy to use for cropping. When you have the program installed and running, select the photo and then use the Crop option. Lots of ways of doing it, so give it a try .

This is for Irfanview 4

Edit | create custom crop selection | (Actual ratio from image) | use mouse cursor to drag the selection border lines (double headed arrow on lines) up or down, and left or right to cover the area you want to keep inside your 'box' | Edit menu, 'Crop Selection' (or hold down Crtl and press Y)

now go to, File | Save As and Save the result as (name of file here)cropped.jpg (jpg - or whatever file extension you want)

Now you can open your newly saved cropped picture in whatever program you want and do whatever you want with it :)
