A crop of a section of an image that has not been scaled down for the web..
This allows you to see the image without the effects of resizing...
Take a picture with your camera. View it on your computer zoomed "1:1" or "100%." Now cut out a square of what you are looking at (a crop). That is a 100% crop..
It is meant to be done so that 1 pixel on your camera equals 1 pixel on you monitor.Tim'Be the change you wish to see in the world.' -Mahatma Gandhihttp://www.flickr.com/photos/timskis6/..
OK, really non-technical .
You have a piece of pizza, you want to show what the pizza looks like, but the entire pizza doesn't fit into the display box, so you take a slice of that pizza and show that slice. That slice is a 100% crop. The slice is the same size as it was when it was part of the whole pizza..
So cropping an image, and not resizing the part you're keeping (or not resizing the original picture prior to cropping) gives you a %100 crop..

Thankyou. Now I understand. If you have room for a 600 pixel wide picture on a Web site, go to the picture and use the marquee to select a 600 pixel wide piece of the picture, crop and then you have it!..
Your replies tell you most of what you want to know. Just thought I would add that the phrase is totally illogical but well established. Logically a 50% crop cuts you photo down to half size and a 100% crop would leave you with nothing!.

I read this a lot on the forums, usually in reference to presentingimages so that they can be compared with other images or forevaluating the performance of the camera...?.
I mean... Probably faster than asking here too...
