Usually, when I crop an image in Photoshop, I can drag around the area and just crop. But when I try this in Photoshop Elements, however, the image is always resized.

Is there a way I can just crop and not scale so it's insanely small?

First thought that comes to mind, is that maybe you have width or height set in your crop tool settings. – Joonas Dec 5 '12 at 14:28

Please check if your fixed crop width and height dimensions are set in the options bar.

If they are, then remove them, and it should be good.
