Subject: Re: cropping

To add to what Mary said: In Digital Image Suite, rather than cropping the
open photo, if you drag the photo onto an open layout and then crop, the
original uncropped photo is still open in the Files stack. You can drag it
onto the layout again if you want to crop it in a different way.
