How can I select a rectangle and crop to it in gimp?
I opened an image. The rectangle selection tool is apparently selected. The mouse cursor consisted of a cross-hairs, a no-entry sign, and a double-lined square. I could not select anything.
The status bar says "Click-drag to subtract from the current selection". So I guess it is in some weird mode. But I can not work out how to get it out of this mode, and into a mode where I can perform the extremely basic task of selecting a rectangle.
